Note: As with all TKC events, all risk and responsibility is assumed by the attendees. The Kindness Collective is a meetup group, NOT an organised tour group, and attendees are requested to make their own judgments on their level of fitness and hiking ability and to always act within that ability to keep themselves and others safe. While the hosts are experienced hikers, and endeavour to keep all activities as low-risk as possible, we hold no responsibility for any accidents or injury that may occur as a result of these activities, and ask that all attendees sign a waiver in advance. Thanks in advance for your cooperation and adherence to this policy 🙂
This is going to be an unforgettable experience with a bunch of amazing people, and we'd love for you to be a part of it! If you'd like to sign up, please register at the link below. The $20 earlybird discount applies if you sign up before the 28th August, as this helps us cover the non-refundable accomodation deposits so we would appreciate prompt registrations.
