Note:

Due to COVID-19 Corona virus pandemic and certain travel restrictions we are applying some temporary policy changes to some of our tours.

For South Chilcotin Getaway (RTBC05-3):

Given the rapidly changing circumstances and updates, our approach is to ask people to not make a final decision at this point in time regarding their planned trip with us this summer whenever possible. We will reconnect with you closer to 30 days prior to their trip date and reassess.

Should your booking need to be cancelled due to extenuating circumstances beyond our control, including (but not limited to) border closures, government initiated shutdowns due to a pandemic or wildfire, weather or smoke which is deemed by us to be a safety issue, we may offer you a 100% credit to reschedule for another date.
