Bookings & payment

When placing a booking we will send you a booking confirmation by email where you are prompted to make a payment of the full amount at the latest 45 days prior to arrival of the tour. For some of the shorter tours we may ask for a immediate payment at the time of booking. If WildSweden has not received the total amount within the payment period the booking will be automatically cancelled.

Preliminary bookings

Due to high demand we do not accept preliminary bookings, we only accept direct confirmation. But if you change your mind you can cancel your reservation without fees within 7 days from booking date.

Cancellations

If you must cancel your tour, just send us an email. We provide refunds at the following conditions:

  • Cancellations can be made at no cost up to 7 days from the time of booking. We will provide a 100% refund.
  • Cancellations between 8 days from the time of booking and 46 days before arrival will be charged at 25% of the booking’s total amount.

Changing your booking

We will make every effort to assist you if you wish to change your booking, but cannot guarantee to be able to meet such requests. Requests for a change must be made by email. In the event of a change, all expenses, costs and charges incurred or imposed by us or any of our suppliers will be payable by you together with an amendment fee of 250 SEK per person per day of your original booking.

Cancellation due to illness/unforseen events

Due to unforeseen circumstances, it is possible to cancel your visit to WildSweden with a refund up to 75% of the total amount. With unforeseen circumstances, we refer to;

  • Bereavement, illness or a severe accident that affected you, your travel companion, husband/wife, common-law spouse, your or partners parents, children or siblings.
  • Unforeseen and serious event outside your control, such as an extensive fire or flood in your residence which means that it is not reasonable to demand that you fulfil your contract.

You must be able to verify the reason that prevents you from carrying out your journey with a certificate from a doctor, authority or insurance company. A medical certificate must contain a diagnosis, the date of your first visit and the reason of why you are prevented from traveling. The certificate must be issued before the arrival date.

For you to get your refund, the cause of cancellation must be unforeseen, unexpected and of a nature that prevents you from carrying out your journey. This means that if you for instance do not have the necessary travel documents for the journey, it will not be regarded as a legitimate reason for canceling.

Additional information

Wildlife watching is dependent on the current wildlife situation. Although we try to recommend certain periods as ”Best time to go” we cannot guarantee wild encounters with any animals. Because we work with wild animals in their natural habitat our success rate depends on Nature. We therefore ask you to make allowances for any changes from the tour itinerary. If we are unable to offer a certain service due to an unforeseen wildlife situation, you will be offered a similar service. Outdoor activities are also weather dependent. If we are forced to cancel an activity due to extreme weather conditions, an alternative activity suitable for the current conditions will be provided. Please note that changes may occur at a short notice, even on the same day.
