How big are the groups?

Each group is limited to 12 participants. Small groups are an important ingredient in adventure travel. They allow for more interaction and more personalized service throughout the itinerary.

 

What is included in the tour price?

All accommodations throughout; all meals, starting with dinner on day 1 and finishing with breakfast on departure day (i.e. the last day of the ElderTreks tour); bottled drinking water throughout the trip; all internal transportation; airport transfers on day 1 and departure day (i.e. the last day of the ElderTreks tour); all day trips and entrance fees as outlined in the itinerary; tips for hotels (porterage) and bus driver, restaurants and spot guides; services of a trip leader.

 

What is not included in the tour price?

International flights, tips to ElderTreks tour leader, national guide, alcoholic drinks, visa’s and travel insurance.

 

Are these “educational” tours?

Yes, in the broadest sense of the word, “educational”. We visit many natural sites, and have talks and discussions on many aspects of natural history and wildlife. Our guides will help to interpret what you see. There is also an excellent library of books on board for your reference.

 

How do we travel during the tour?

All local transportation is included in the land price of the trip. We travel by private mini-van or microbus for road travel, by ferry and by foot.

 

What are our accommodations like?

We always stay in good accommodations — both hotels and lodges where rooms have a private bath or shower.

 

What about the weather?

Temperatures range from a low in the upper 30s˚F at night, to a possible high of 70˚F on sunny days. Rain is a possibility anytime during the sailing season.

 

When is payment due?

A non-refundable deposit of $500 (plus insurance if you require it) is due at time of booking and will reserve your place on the tour. Payment of the full price is due 120 days before departure. Cancellation charges are applicable and are outlined in the “Terms & Conditions” section of our brochure.

 

Is medical insurance required?

Insurance coverage is not included in the cost of your trip. Please note that medical insurance is not required for this adventure but is recommended. ElderTreks offers comprehensive travel insurance and we are happy to provide you with a quote if you call our office. If you are purchasing insurance elsewhere, please ensure you provide the details to ElderTreks as soon as possible.

*Please note those travelers with pre-existing medical conditions must take out travel insurance at the time of deposit

 

What should I take on the tour?

There is a detailed “What to Take” list in our Trip Kit, which we will send to you after you have booked the trip.

 

What meals are included?

All meals on the tour are included, starting with dinner on day 1, and finishing with breakfast on day 15.

 

Can you arrange my flights?

We would be happy to take care of your air arrangements. ElderTreks offers personalized flight itineraries — not group flights. Stop over en route, come in a few days early, or extend your stay. Call us for a customized itinerary.

 

What if I would like more information?

If you have any further questions about the trip, please do not hesitate to contact our office for additional information. A Trip Kit containing further details on the destination will be sent to you once you have booked the trip.
