1. Why choose Earth Missions?
At Earth Missions, our experienced staff will ensure you’re placed in the best locations and conditions on the planet. By booking through Earth Missions, you’ll receive quality advice without any additional costs – you’ll pay the same to book through us as you would directly with the operator. We’ll send you on your way with every detail covered and equip you with all the knowledge you need for a hassle free trip. From insider tips on the best hotels to local food trucks and comprehensive instructions on ground transportation and local guides, we’ll ensure you’re well looked after.
2. What kind of pre-mission information will I receive once I book?
At Earth Missions, we endeavor to provide the most comprehensive pre-mission planning materials in the business. When you sign up for one of our missions, you’ll receive an in-depth electronic trip packet that includes detailed and relevant information relating to the specific destination and activity that you have booked.

Some of the information covered in our pre-mission packets includes:

3. Is Global Rescue Medical Evacuation Insurance a good idea?
When you travel to remote locations, it’s most likely that your personal medical insurance won’t bring you home or get you the emergency medical care you need. Global Rescue will, and in the worst-case scenario, it is a policy that could save your life. At Earth Missions, it’s essential to us that our clients have a safe and exhilarating experience, but accidents unfortunately do happen. Any time you have an illness or injury requiring hospitalization or face imminent bodily harm more than 160 miles from home, Global Rescue will reach you, stabilize you and bring you home, by whatever means necessary. Global Rescue memberships are all-inclusive and have no deductibles or hidden costs. Memberships are available in short term, single-trip options or annual plans protecting all travel, both domestic and international. Standard Trip Insurance is an important financial planning instrument but is not designed to provide immediate emergency services.
4.Why should I book through Earth Missions instead of booking direct with a lodge?
At Earth Missions, our team specializes in delivering the best possible adventure holidays on the planet. We live and breathe adventure sports and our first-hand product knowledge is unbeatable. Our personal experiences, hands-on approach and unfailing attention to detail means we’re constantly providing exceptional customer service and producing once in a lifetime experiences for our clients. Our extensive pre-mission planning ensures that every client sets off with every detail covered and all the knowledge they need for a hassle free adventure. And when you book through Earth Missions, you never pay a cent more than if you book directly with the operator.
5. What if I am a single traveler? Are there any packages or options where I don’t have to pay a large single supplement fee?
Absolutely. There are countless options available for single travelers across our extensive global network. From surf camps to fly-fishing lodges and ski chalets, we can create packages tailored to single occupancy or pair you up with another single traveler.
