What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Contact forms

When you sign up for our newsletter or fill out a guided trip info request, we will generally add your e-mail address and name to our mailing list.

We do not otherwise use, share, or sell this information and will never do so.


We have no idea if WordPress (the back-end platform on which this site is built, which a majority of the world’s websites now use) collects cookies from visitors.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

Who we share your data with

We don’t share your data with anybody. How’s that for refreshing in this day and age?

How long we retain your data

If you contact us or sign up for our newsletter, we retain this information indefinitely. If you would like to have your name removed from our files, please let us know.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
