    Cancellation and Refunds Policies

    If you need to cancel a reservation and receive a refund of your deposit/payment, we must be notified at least thirty days prior to the trip. Should you need to cancel with less than thirty days notice, we will make every effort to rebook your spot on that particular trip and refund your deposit/payment. However, if we are unable to find another client for your spot, we will not be able to return your deposit/payment and full payment will be required. Unfortunately, we cannot make any exceptions.

    We hope that you understand the necessity for this policy to ensure that we can continue to run our guide trips on a sound financial basis. We realize that emergencies do happen, and please know we will make every effort to re-book your spot, but if we don’t, we must uphold this policy, even in the case of an emergency.
