Iditarod booking

Due to the limited slots and enormous popularity of the Iditarod expedition, in October of each year I contact the list of explorers that have expressed interest in next March's Iditarod expedition in chronological order. At that time, they have 2 weeks to deposit $7,500 for the Iditarod or I offer the trip to the next interested party.  Even after the trip is full (6), I continue to take $1000 refundable deposits from people who would like to be added to the trip on short notice should there be a cancellation.

Refund Policy

50% deposits are refunded only in the case of the death of a Client or owners prior to the commencement of training. The number of flying days or total hours is weather / client dependent and can be more or less than the 5 year average of 29 hours. Cancellations for other reasons incur a 50% penalty if the slot can not be filled with a last minute client. The remaining 50% percent can be used or transferred for other ACTS training or tours. Nothing is booked until your deposit arrives and you receive a confirmation notice from ACTS.
