Please do not hesitate to contact the office by phone or email if you have any questions or concerns regarding the expedition. Likewise, it will be helpful if you do your best to return forms and answer emails as promptly as possible so we know that you have all of the information you need to make this a safe, enjoyable and successful journey!
