Return by tube rafting: add 10 EURO per person to the prices listed above. Rafting back requires a minimum of 2 people, i.e. 20 Euro minimum. If you are a solo traveller, our pricing assumes return by walking only, for rafting you would pay an extra 20 Euro.
FOR GROUPS of 1 or 2: you will not have to pay the total cost of 3 people based on the prices above. You will pay a premium for a group size smaller than three, but our website pricing in the Budget Option sections has been adjusted to account for costs that are shared.
JOINS: If you want to pay the cost based on a minimum of 3 people, we can try to arrange to have you join another group. However, this is dependant on whether others have booked for the same length of trek on the same start date. We cannot guarantee availability to join a group. If there is availability, we will gladly add you to the group, but if a member of the group cancels, your reservation may also be affected by way of cost increase or cancellation. Also, we cannot pre-determine group compatibility. If this is important to you, please do not opt for a join. Joins are most feasible with 2-Day treks during high season (April - September). It is very difficult to find joins for longer treks. If you wish to be joined to a 2-Day Trek, please let us know your dates and we will let you know if a join is available. You also have the option to book your trek and open it for joining, just let us know when booking.
