Terms & conditions

Our preferred method of payment is BANK TRANSFER. The Paypal commission saved will be put in good use for more delicious food, wines, snacks and refreshments :)

Food, diets and allergies
If you have any food allergy, we will try our best to accommodate dietary requirements. What food we serve will typically be dictated by the country and region, the event takes place. We will be happy to offer gluten free, dairy free and vegetarian options, if you let us know about your allergies or diet restrictions in advance.

Cancellation Policy
Unfortunately due to the involved logistics & up front costs of these events we have a strict no refund and no cancellation policy regardless of circumstance. Please make sure you can make it before you register. If you need to cancel we will happily help you try to find a replacement for your spot, and if we can find one you will be refunded in full minus a service charge of $150. We strongly urge you to buy travel insurance and to be sure you can make it before you book. 

Cancellation by Sisterhood Retreats
Sisterhood Retreats reserves the right to cancel any workshop/retreat at any time for any reason, including if there are too few participants, or if the quality of the trip or the safety of travellers is judged by Sisterhood Retreats in our sole discretion to be compromised. In such cases, a refund of payment received by Sisterhood Retreats shall constitute full and final settlement. Sisterhood Retreats is not responsible for any loss incurred on account of non-refundable or non-transferable air OR travel tickets tickets. Travel insurance is highly recommended.

Variations & logistics

Our itineraries are designed to take advantage of the best light and the best photographic opportunities. Attendees should allow for flexibility due to changes in weather, traffic, cultural events, local governmental policy changes, or other logistical arrangements deemed necessary by Sif Orellana. The program can therefore be subject to variations, depending mainly on the weather. But don’t worry, there will always be a great plan B as exciting as plan A.

Please make sure you can make it and have read the descriptions throughly before you register.

Travel insurance
All workshop/learning retreat attendees are strongly encouraged to carry trip cancellation insurance as well as medical emergency evacuation insurance. If you catch a really severe flue a few days before departure and you don't possess the strength to travel, you would lose your entire investment in the workshop/learning retreat if you didn’t have insurance. Many things happen in life that we don’t expect, and it’s nice to know you have a safety net to protect you, just in case.

Likewise, if you get injured in a remote place and you have emergency evacuation insurance, help will be on the way immediately and it won’t cost a fortune to transport you to a local hospital.
