Reserving your trip
A $500 deposit is required to reserve your spot on a trip. Click here to reserve your trip!
A second $500 payment is due 90 days before trip departure. The balance of the trip price is due 60 days before trip departure.
Cancellations must be received in writing (an email is fine). If you cancel your trip more than 90 days before trip departure, your deposit will be refunded minus a $300 cancellation fee. If you cancel less than 90 days, but more than 60 days before departure, your deposits will not be returned. If you cancel less than 60 days prior to trip departure, you will not receive a refund. (As a product, summer travel in Alaska is more perishable than a tomato in the Arctic winter. Last minute cancellations could put us out of business)! Please consider trip insurance.
Trip details subject to change
Please note that trip schedules, venues, activities, etc. are subject to change due to safety, logistic, weather or other reasons. If the trip must be altered due to such reasons, we will attempt to reroute the trip and find acceptable alternative activities. If the trip must be cancelled completely due to "Acts of God" or other exceptional causes, you will receive a 40% refund and a 40% credit towards a future Out in Alaska trip. If a trip is cancelled due to low enrollment, we will attempt to notify you of this situation at least 60 days before the trip begins and provide you with a full refund. If a trip is cancelled, we will not be liable for non-refundable flights or other travel arrangements (Please consider trip insurance).
What your trip price includes
See trip itineraries for details specific to your trip. Costs for scheduled activities are included. Your participation in scheduled activities is generally optional (as long as your non-participation does not affect the group’s schedule/itinerary), but you will not receive a refund for included activities that you decline. Additional or alternative activities may be available at additional cost. Please note all prices are based on double occupancy. If you’d like, we will attempt to find a roommate for you. You will need to pay the single supplement cost if you choose not to or are not able to room with someone else on the trip.
You must be at least 18 years of age and have a sense of adventure. Mature minors may be accommodated upon request and kid-friendly family trips can be arranged on a custom tour basis. Out in Alaska’s mission is to provide outstanding adventures in Alaska to gays and lesbians from around the world. We are hetero-friendly too. All are welcome. Physical demands vary by trip (see the trip itinerary). Most trips allow flexibility in the physical activity level to respond to group needs/desires. Of course, you will get the most of out of your experience in wild Alaska if you are more fit. We encourage you to workout or engage in regular (minimum three times per week) physical activity for at least one month prior to your trip (this will be rewarding in itself).
You will need to sign a Release of Liability that says you understand that there are risks involved with wilderness travel and take responsibility for the consequences of our trip. We commit to doing everything we can to ensure trip safety – and we always welcome your concerns and feedback.
You must respect the needs of the group, if you present a threat to the physical or emotional safety of others, you will be dismissed from the trip immediately and will have to incur any costs of travel back to your gateway city.
Our trips travel far from medical care. In an effort to reduce risks you will need to complete a confidential health information form to let us know if you have any major allergies, health issues, etc. We recommend checking with your doctor if you have any health concerns. You must have medical insurance in order to participate in our trips. You are responsible for 100% of any medical and evacuation costs required during or after the trip (Consider trip insurance).
Your Out in Alaska guides are highly trained and have an exceptional safety record. Your safety, comfort, and enjoyment while visiting Alaska are our highest priority; however, it is important that guests understand that there are no absolute guarantees of safety out in the wilderness (just good preparation) - Alaska is NOT Disneyland! Your lead guide is Wilderness First Responder certified (sort of an EMT for the wilderness). With our vast wilderness experience, we are always ready to respond to the unexpected road bump presented by Mother Nature or one of our gravel ‘highways.’
