ART. 5 – PARTICIPATION CONDITIONS
Our activities are open to everyone; however, depending on the activities and the routes, certain conditions must be taken into account (age limit, knowing how to swim, technical level, physical condition, etc.).
Cors’Aventure does not have the means to verify the sports practice level of its customers.
It is therefore up to each participant to have assessed their physical condition in accordance with the choices of routes they wish to take. To find out about these conditions, please refer to the technical sheets of the routes (available on our website www.corse-aventure.com).
For canyoning and whitewater activities, it is imperative to know how to swim and immerse yourself.
You should not have any medical contraindications to the practice of the chosen activity.
IMPORTANT: If you do not have any medical contraindications, but you are dependent on special medical care or treatment (asthma, diabetes, etc.) or your health condition requires special attention (fragile joints, back problems, mandatory glasses, etc.), you must inform the instructor before the start of the activity and provide the appropriate emergency medications, according to medical recommendations.

We strongly advise each participant to be covered by a liability insurance and/or an individual accident insurance with the insurance of their choice for the practice of whitewater sports and/or mountain sports. Indeed, we cannot replace the individual civil liability of each participant.
Cors’aventure SARL is insured in civil liability for all activities it offers and its liability cannot be engaged for activities booked with other providers.
In case of bodily injury, the liability of the SARL Cors’aventure and the intervening instructor is released as soon as the victim is taken care of by the competent rescue organizations, and any hospital follow-up will be the responsibility of the personal insurances of the injured person.
The practice of outdoor activities takes place in a specific environment called “risky”.
Each participant is aware, given the specific nature of the activities offered, that they may be exposed to certain risks due in particular to the remoteness, isolation and the specific nature of the environment (river, cave, cliff, etc.). He assumes them with full knowledge of the facts and he must comply with the rules of caution and follow the advice given by professionals.
The participant/client is responsible for the equipment that has been lent to them for the activity. The professional cannot be held responsible for any damages that may be caused by the equipment provided.
In case of theft or damage to the loaned equipment, the participant/client may be asked for compensation for wear and tear or a full refund of the equipment.
