Home > Short trips > Frequently asked short trip questions
Do you provide water on trip?
Yes. Each guest receives their own BPA-free plastic water bottle for use in the vehicle and during activities. The guide carries additional water to refill the bottles.
Do you provide other refreshments on activities?
Yes. This varies across activities and locations. Typically, there are trail deluxe trail snacks available on all hikes and bike rides. Depending on the location and length of a hike, the guide may offer a sumptuous mountain tea. This includes freshly-brewed coffee, tea or hot chocolate; soup in winter; fresh fruit, pastries or muffins, cheese, biscuits, dips and spreads.
Do you include national park entrance fees?
Yes. We include conservation fees wherever our itinerary enters a national park. They are charged net and non-commissionable.
Must my guests bring their own hiking gear?
We request that all hikers wear good walking shoes or trainers and ideally should have their own windproof or wet weather gear and day pack. However, we provide a selection of rain jackets and day packs for guests to use if they do not have their own. We also provide telescoping walking poles, gloves and hip packs for use.
Must my guests bring their own biking gear?
We recommend a pair of padded bike shorts to enhance the comfort of the rides. Guests are welcome to bring their own pedals and shoes if they plan to opt for more technical routes; however, the recommended routes are generally short and easily ridden with flat pedals.
Are drinks included in the short trips?
We include a sundowner drink on the first night and water, tea and coffee are available throughout the trip. All other drinks are for the guests’ account. Where we stay in cottages and meals are catered by our guide, guests will have the opportunity to purchase drinks en route.
Can we make adjustments to the itinerary?
Of course. Speak to us if you would like to make adjustments and we will work with you to tailor a trip
