Important Points to Consider
Participation is key
The more you and your fellow trekkers put into your trek, the more entertaining, enlightening and fulfilling your holiday will be - so be adventurous, join in wherever possible and make the most of each and every opportunity as it arises.
TrekAmerica tours are unique in that our routes are not completely rigid - so if there is a chance to take a back road, or spend longer at the beach, or take in an unexpected attraction or festival, then we have the option to do just that!
Although you are travelling with a group, don't lose your self-reliance. If we arrive in a city and have a 'free day' to explore, take the subways, trolleys and buses, soak up the nightlife and get out and see the sights.
Respect your neighbours
When we are staying in campsites, especially those in the National Parks, remember that quiet hours are in effect. Please respect your fellow campers who are there to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of their surroundings.
We promote a 'leave no trace' philosophy by keeping to existing trails and disposing of waste responsibly and ask, when travelling with TrekAmerica, that you respect the natural environment and the local people you encounter along the way.
Make friends from around the world
TrekAmerica groups are made up of a wide variety of nationalities, and although English is the common language, please make every effort to speak more slowly for the benefit of those non-English speakers.
