Please read carefully our Terms of Service (“Terms”) as they include information about all legal requirements, agreements and conditions.

1. Scope of Outr services
We operate the Platform as an online marketplace for registered adventure seekers (“Users“) to search, find and book outdoor and adventure services (“Experiences“) published by 3rd party operators, providers and agencies (“Operators“) and to allow direct or in-direct communication between Users and Operators.
1.1 We as a provider of this Platform do not provide, offer, service, create, sell, re-sell or manage directly any Experiences. Operators are responsible to offer, manage and deliver Experiences on their own. When Users find and book an Experience that Operators advertise, both parties enter a binding contract together.
1.2 We do our best to allow only certified, verified and well stablished operators to join our Platform. We have, however, no control of the Experiences that Operators offer to our Users and adventure community in general. This means we can not guarantee the conditions, quality, safety or legality of the Experiences available on our Platform.
1.3 Adventure Operators are free to register for an account and offer their portfolio of Experiences on our Platform. By deciding to use our Platform to create, manage, promote and sell your Experiences, you agree that you, your employees or anyone representing your company act on your own behalf and not on behalf of Outr.
1.4 Any registered or unregistered User of our Platform is welcome to search for and book any Experiences provided by our Operators. Previous experience is usually not needed in most of the cases but we expect common sense and due diligence when booking any Experience. You are expected to do at least a minimum research about the Experience you are going to participate in.
1.5 We at Outr, as an Internet company, are doing best to keep our Platform running 24/7. We can not, however, guarantee 100% availability and accessibility of our Platform due to the nature of Internet. We are also constantly working on improving our Platform and this may result in limited maintenance windows when our Platform is not available.
Any User, Operator or an adventure community enthusiast can use our Platform with the following conditions:
