“I always thought your office staff was willing to take the time to answer any questions I had” -Chad and Cindy, Grand Canyon North Rim
Our office staff is available by phone 7 days a week from 7-6 PST to help you book your perfect Escape Adventure. You can also contact your travel agent to book your trip. If you would like to book your trip online, we make it easy. Please visit our website EscapAdventures.com for a secure reservation 24 hours a day. A $500 deposit per person is required on all tours. It may be made by check, money order, or major credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express). Your deposit is 100% refundable for up to 15 days after you make your deposit. If it is within 60 days of your trip departure, the terms of the Cancellation Policy then apply. Your final payment is due 60 days prior to your trip departure.
Your trip departure is guaranteed. No other company offers an easier or economical way to guarantee your trip. At Escape Adventures we know that your time is valuable and having a tour company cancel your trip due to low enrollment is inconvenient and costly. While this does not happen often, the anxiety of this happening can be stressful – especially when you are booking airfare and other land costs. That is why at Escape Adventures we are now offering a Guaranteed Trip Departure Policy* which guarantees your trip will not be cancelled. How it works; at the time of your reservation, select the Guaranteed Trip Departure option, adding an additional $400 per person to your trip cost. If no other guests sign up on your selected trip, your trip will run no matter what – even if it is just you. If at least 4 guests sign up for your trip (including you), you will not be charged the $400 when final payment is collected. You will receive an email confirmation when your final payment is processed.
* Scheduled Domestic trips only.
We know you will love your trip. In fact, we’re so confident in the consistent quality of our tours that we guarantee all our trips.

|59-45 days prior to trip departure||50% of what you have paid minus a $200 processing fee per person|

|29-0 days prior trip departure||No Refund|
If we cancel your tour for any reason, you will receive 100% of what you have paid. There is no partial refund for starting a tour late or leaving a trip early. In order to keep our tours affordable and provide proper notice to our lodging partners, we must adhere to this timeline, no exceptions. After our refund deadline has passed we cannot provide a refund for any reason, including circumstances beyond your control such as weather-related travel delays, family emergency, or injury. Insurance agencies however, offer a full or partial refund in many circumstances if you purchase travel insurance to cover your tour. Please see our Travel Insurance Information in this section.
After your tour is confirmed, it will not be cancelled for low-enrollment, but in rare cases may be cancelled due to weather, government intervention, unsafe trail conditions, or any other reason that would affect the quality of the schedule tour or the safety of its participants. If we are forced to cancel your tour, we will provide a 100% refund and work to add you to another trip that works for you. If you need to cancel your multiday tour for any reason, your request must be in writing.
We advise you to avoid non-refundable flights and other travel arrangements and are not responsible for the costs of such arrangement in the event your tour is canceled. The travel insurance offered in conjunction with our tours covers the cost of your tour but does not cover additional costs such as travel to and from your tour departure location, and hotel stays prior to or following your tour. Please consider purchasing additional insurance coverage if you have non-refundable travel arrangements. Please note tour itineraries and tour descriptions provided prior to your trip provide an overview of our standard tour. However, there are times that your tour may differ somewhat from this sample based on participant skill levels and interest, weather conditions, and other factors. In these events, Escape Adventures – highly trained and qualified tour guides- will work with guests to craft the best possible tour experience for the entire group.
We highly recommend that you purchase travel insurance. Travel insurance covers vacation cost against cancellation and interruption while also providing medical, lost or damaged property and trip delay coverage. You are reimbursed if you must cancel or interrupt your travel, and you are also covered should the need arise for emergency medical treatment, medical evacuation and a number of other situations.
You can purchase travel insurance from our partner at AIG when you book your trip, AIG Travel Guard through Escape Adventures. Please call us for more information or to view the terms of agreement. 702.596.2953
Guests are required to provide a signed Release of Liability Assumption of Risks as well as a Registration Form prior to joining any Escape Adventure. Once you have reserved your spot on a trip, you will receive these forms. You may fill these forms out online as an option. Unfortunately, we are unable to allow anyone to participate on any tour unless these forms are completed.
A valid passport is required for all international trips. If you are coming to the United States, you will need a passport. Be sure to check the expiration date and physical condition of your passport and verify the travel document requirements with the consulates of the countries you are planning to visit during your trip. Passports issued to minors under the age of 16 expire every 5 years. You may also find helpful information on the US State Department’s website: travel.state.gov. To be additionally safe, and in case of losing your travel documents, make photocopies of your airline ticket confirmation and your passport. Being prepared will avoid much stress and frustration. We suggest you leave one set of copies at home with someone you trust and is available at any hour, and bring one set with you, keeping it separate from the original documents. If your arrival and departure hotel is willing to store them in a safe deposit box that is a good idea to do so.
After we receive your deposit, you will be e-mailed a complete list of clothing and gear that you will need for your Escape Adventure. It has listed items that we feel are necessary for a comfortable and safe adventure. This includes casual and comfortable layers before and after daily activities, waterproof and multiple layered -technical cycling clothing for your daily activities, and other essential items needed to make your trip unforgettable and enjoyable.
There are some restrictions to size of bags and luggage due to the nature and location of each trip. Please note that on some of our remote backcountry mountain bike tours in Canyonlands, luggage is limited to one small soft-shell suitcase or a medium/large sized duffel bag (no heavier than 40 pounds). We also suggest bringing one daypack or small backpack for valuables. Please ensure your luggage container is water repellant for these trips.
A word about summer/high elevation trips: We often wish we could control the weather, but unfortunately, it’s not up to us. Please consider the elevation of your tour when packing. Regardless of the time of year, days and nights at elevation can be cold. It is best to be prepared for everything. Often weather predictions are unreliable, and we recommend bringing gear for wet and cold weather under all circumstances. We have experienced freezing temperatures in both July and October. Layering works well, and a warm beanie cap is important year-round.
A word about spring and fall desert/lower elevation tours: Not many people think of “rain” and the desert together. We’re here to tell you that it can rain in the desert and be very windy and often cool at night. Keep in mind that you will be having more fun if the weather’s not making you miserable.

Not only do we run an international bike tour business, but we also own and operate two premiere bicycle stores. We have learned over the years that every cyclist is different and prefers different types of bikes for different types of terrain. That is why we offer the best bicycles for rent in the business. If for some reason you are not happy with the quality of your rental, we will refund the cost of your entire bike rental. We also rent high-quality camping gear for all our camping tours. These include a tent, sleeping pad, sleeping bag, sleeping bag liner, full size pillow, and ground tarp. Your Trip Leader will always help to ensure your equipment is set up properly each night when you arrive at camp. If you are bringing your bike with you, check with your airline’s baggage policy in advance and be sure to pack your bike accordingly. If you are shipping your bike to your destination, confirm the address with our office and allow enough time for your bike to arrive. We’re happy to help you ship your bike. Whatever you need to get the most out of your tour, we are here to make it happen. Prices for rentals can be found listed under our scheduled departure dates.
Since we offer rental bikes and camping gear, and all meals and cooking equipment are handled by your guides, you should not need to purchase extra gear to be able to join us on a tour. The only items you need to bring with you are your personal items: comfortable clothing and shoes appropriate for your destination and activities, toiletries, and your camera. Our support van will carry your luggage, but you are welcome to bring a day pack to keep personal items handy. Our tour leaders always carry emergency supplies and tools.
Guests often ask us what they need to do to train for a tour. We recommend exercising regularly prior to any trip to get your muscles and cardio-vascular system prepared for the daily workout associated with adventure touring. We do not expect you to practice whitewater rafting or rock climbing on your own. All instruction for these multi-sport activities is provided on the tour and there is no need for prior experience. If you are looking for a more relaxed workout, consider our Introductory Tours. The following are a few important pointers for each type of tour:
For optimal physical preparation, we recommend that you ride at least several hours per week during the months preceding the tour. During the tour you will be on your bike every day, and we can assure you that an unprepared bottom is a sore one! If you can’t ride your bike, or don’t own one, take a spin class at your local gym a few times a week. Your level of fitness does affect how much you enjoy your tour. Check your specific itinerary for an idea of your average daily mileage and level of strenuousness – then train appropriately.
As an adventurous person, feel free to do whatever you can before the trip. We especially recommend focusing on your bike and walking, as many of the other activities aren’t available for practice. You can leave these specialty sports up to us. Except for biking and hiking, no experience is necessary, just enthusiasm and an open mind ready to try some new adventures. Your level of fitness also affects how much you enjoy your tour. Again, check your specific itinerary for an idea of your average daily mileage and level of strenuousness, then train appropriately.
Many of our summer adventures take place at high elevations. Most people acclimate easily and without incident however, it is best to be prepared and recognize symptoms when they occur. Being well hydrated before the tour begins and a good level of fitness will help. Many of our high elevation tours offer an easy first day to help people acclimate. Ibuprofen and other light pain relievers can help with headaches. The most common side effects are headache, loss of appetite and sleeplessness. Our Trip Leaders are well trained to recognize altitude symptoms and will offer suggestions on how to manage them.
While every Escape Adventure trip is designed to appeal to active adventure seekers, and in many cases, particular skill levels, there is always a different idea of what that exactly means. That is why we have designed the chart below to help facilitate the process and make sure you join the proper tour. We know your pace may vary from one day to the next—and your traveling companions’ may differ as well.
In addition to the chart below, it is important to know that we present a range of mileage options on each tour as well provide support vehicles as much as possible. That way you can take a break and do as little or as much as you would like each day.
