Tour Assembly / Van Shuttles
All tour assembly locations are clearly indicated in each tour description and all are served by commercial airlines and other forms of public transportation.
Timberline can provide transfers to and from airports at all tour assembly locations. Pick-up times and logistics vary for each tour; details relating to transfer procedures will be included in post-registration information packets.
Certain locations may not be as economically attractive as other nearby locations. For example, airfares to Calgary, Las Vegas and Salt Lake are far more attractive without additional connections beyond those points to Banff, Cedar City and Moab. In these instances, shuttle service provided either by Timberline van or commercial carrier, will be available at designated times. Timberline shuttles are without additional cost; commercial shuttle costs are set by the carrier and are the sole responsibility of those using that shuttle. Contact Timberline’s office for details concerning shuttle times and costs.
All cycling tours will depart early-morning on the day of departure and return late-afternoon of the tour’s final day. Participants are urged to plan their arrival at tour assembly locations for cycling tours not later than the day prior to departure date. All cycling tours will be preceded by an orientation dinner the evening prior to departure.
Hiking programs assemble early-morning of the day of departure and conclude by late-afternoon of the tour’s final day. Participants can schedule their arrival at assembly locations by early-morning of the departure date, but an arrival anytime during the day prior to departure would be a much better choice.
Although lodging for the nights prior to tour departure and following the tour’s conclusion are not included in the tour package cost, we can arrange accommodations upon request.
Because the logistical issues vary for each program, we urge contact with our office prior to finalizing travel plans.
