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 Chilko Explorer Ride (GRBC01):

If possible, make sure you get your vaccine when available. For International guests, anyone not able to come because of a border closure (about 90 days) we will roll over their reservation with their deposit intact to 2023.
If a person contracts Covid and cannot come, both the deposit and balance are non-refundable. Unless you can find a replacement person to take your trip. In the case of someone contracting Covid and then fully recovers prior to the trip, proof from a Doctor will be required that states you have been cleared to travel and display no signs of Covid or the potential of spreading the illness.
If a person cannot come because of a Canadian border closure, inter-provincial border closure, or a provincial travel ban which is out of everyone’s control, the reservation with the full deposit will be rolled over until 2023. Or if another later date in the same season is available, we will just move dates to later in the season.
Until the virus is solved, we will be following best practices as governed by the Province of BC.
