Cancellation Policy

Most trips require a minimum group size of three people to be run at the listed price. If we must cancel a trip due to too few people, your money will be refunded or applied toward another trip, whichever you desire.

If you must cancel, your deposit and any payments (minus a $100 administrative fee) will be refunded with notification to us at least 120 days prior to departure. With 90-119 days notice of cancellation, all but your deposit will be refunded. With less than 90 days notice, no refund is available. We recommend that you obtain travel insurance. Most policies require that you purchase travel insurance very soon after signing up for your trip.
