FAQ's

Our decision to move forward with trip planning is not in any way minimizing the seriousness of COVID. In fact, being that our founder has asthma, we take the risks incredibly seriously which is why we have created modifications & added COVID protocols to our event operational plans.

 

Getting outdoors and human connection is essential for our physical and mental health. COVID is not going away anytime soon, but the good news is that we understand it better now than we did at the beginning and will continue to learn more as we move forward. 

 

Your safety is our #1 priority and therefore we will be following the recommended guidelines and those required by any of our guide partners.


International trips may require vaccinations and boosters if mandated by the country we are traveling to.
