New booking system
4th September 2023

We are using a new booking system based on a waiting list.
The accommodation page now has a waiting list request and only one date per customer will be available.
Bookings will still be only available for the next 3 months but will have a waiting list for the following 6 months.

Updated Terms and Conditions
3rd November 2023

We have updated our Terms and Conditions for accommodation and packages with the removal of the COVID vaccination certificate requirement.
It is very important to read our T&C prior to making any booking.
