Travel Advices

Adventure travel is unique because of challenging terrain, extreme weather, remote locales, and longer durations.   Accidents are rarely due to a single event. Multiple events usually occur in sequence preceding an accident. Travelers should be vigilant about the probability and consequence of risk, and try to make good decisions before they get into trouble.
