For the main itinerary, transfers on the final day are included. Arrival and departure times vary for alternative itineraries; inquire with your Adventure Specialist upon booking for details. If you would like assistance with international flights, please visit our Booking Flights resource page.

Adventure activities may include hiking; Zodiac excursions; photography; museum, cultural and historical visits; town exploration; and wildlife observation.
Solo travelers willing to share can reserve a quad, triple or twin-shared cabin, where you will be matched with a person of the same gender.
