Booking Information

Reserving Space

Our groups are small, so space is limited. We recommend that you call as early as possible to ensure space is available on your desired departure date. Many guests book about a year in advance. Call us at 1-800-235-0289 to reserve your space.


A $700 per person non-refundable deposit will hold your place on most of our treks departing before March 31, 2015. Deposits for custom treks vary by departure. Trip extensions require an additional minimum deposit of $300 per person.

For trips departing May 2015 through March 31, 2016 a non-refundable deposit in the amount of 20% of your per person trip price will hold your place on most of our treks. Trip extensions also require additional minimum deposit of 20% of the per person extension price.

Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover are accepted for your trip deposit.


You will be invoiced upon making a reservation, and full payment is due 90 days prior to the first land day of the trip. Payment is accepted as follows:

1) U.S. Dollar check posted to our U.S. office

2) By wire transfer to our account at the Cambridge Trust Company, Cambridge, Mass.

Single Accommodations

Lodges base their prices on double occupancy, with a single-occupancy supplement for solo travelers. If you are traveling alone and would like to share a room, every effort will be made to match you with a roommate. We will invoice you for the single supplement initially, and refund the supplement if you are matched with a roommate.
