  • If you are an alumni, subtract 10 percent.
  • If you are a first-time client and are part of a group, subtract 10 percent.

These discounts are not applicable to trips in Alaska.


Tipping your guides is customary. We recommend 5 to 15 percent total of the trip’s cost for a job well done. The gratuity is split equitably by the guides who are in the field simultaneously (with the exception of Andrew Skurka, as the business owner). Cash or check is preferred, and should be given directly to the lead guide (or assistant guide, if Andrew is your lead guide).
