Reserving a Trip
We make preparing for your trip easy! Our area managers are here to help—from choosing the right trip and checking availability to reserving your place to stay. Our office manager will normally be your single point of contact. They will oversee all of your arrangements, answer any questions that you may have, and help you prepare for the adventure of a lifetime.

Choosing Your Trip
We suggest that you read the trip information to choose the right adventure for your ability level and interest. Trip information is available for on each page or can be sent to you via fax, email or mail. Our office manager can answer any questions you might have and they would be happy to refer you to someone who has traveled with us before for a reference.

Reserving Your Place
Early reservations are recommended since group sizes are limited and airlines often sell out of their best fares many months in advance. Once you have submitted your reservation request with us, one of our travel consultants will contact you the following business day to confirm your arrangements and will charge the initial deposit to your major credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or American Express). You can then download a trip application (in PDF format) and send it to us by mail with two recent passport photos. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 303-507-2530. Our office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30AM to 5:00PM Mountain Time.

Upon receiving your deposit, we will send you a confirmation letter, a detailed trip itinerary, visa information (if required), a travel insurance application and a pre-departure information booklet with a recommended equipment list, suggested reading list and general information needed to prepare for your trip. Our experienced staff is happy to assist you in your preparation for your adventure with us.
