Walks and Hikes
This is an easy to moderate hiking adventure. Excursions will be taken at a leisurely pace suitable for study. All travelers should be in good health and be able to keep pace with an active group of travelers during our full and exciting days of adventure.
Participants will need a valid U.S. passport or passport from their native country to cross the border into Canada. Please be sure your passport is valid for at least 6 months after departure.
Crossing the Border with Children
Due to international concern over child abduction, single parents, grandparents, or guardians traveling with children often need proof of custody or notarized letters from the other parent authorizing travel.
Crossing the Border with Medication
If you are entering Canada with prescription drugs and syringes used for medical reasons, be sure to keep the medication in its original and labeled container to avoid problems. Syringes should be accompanied by a medical certificate that shows they are for medical use and should be declared to Canadian Customs officials.
