Trip FAQ’s

What should I look for when booking a trip?

Good Trip Adventures offers group departures in a wide range of locations and with a variety of activity levels – diversity is the spice of life! It’s important to find the trip that fits your experience and expectations. Every trip page includes an intensity rating and a detailed itinerary. 

Be sure to review all of the information on a trip page before booking and reach out to hello@goodtripadventures for more information if you need it! We really, really, really love talking about our trips in case you didn’t realize that yet.

How hard will this trip be?

There are lots of factors that go into a trip’s final intensity rating. It’s like a perfectly balanced recipe of mileage, elevation change, and time spent doing a certain activity. Be sure to read the section titled “Intensity” on a trip page to get more insight into these factors. Learn more about our intensity scale here

If you’re unsure of which level is best for you or if you’d like advice on training for a trip, contact us at hello@goodtripadventures.com and we’ll savor the opportunity to geek out over some trail data.

Are there any age requirements?

They say age is just a number and we (mostly) agree! However, due to legal restrictions and group dynamic considerations, we do have a minimum age of 18 on our public group departures. But there’s no maximum!

If you have someone under 18 in your group, we can accommodate all ages on a private adventure, so let’s talk!

I’m a solo traveler, can I come?

Yes, yes, a thousand times yes! Our trips are designed to foster group bonding and our guides are pros at making sure everyone feels welcomed. Any given trip is usually a healthy mix of solo travelers, friends, and couples. By the end of the adventure, we’ll all be besties.
