This is the first step in arranging the active adventure of your dreams! Our secure online reservations form is a great way to send us your payment information outside of our office hours. This form will be sent directly to our reservations team who will carefully process your payment manually. You will always receive a personalized payment confirmation email indicating the dollar amount charged. For European trip payments, we use the daily Euro exchange rate from Commonwealth Foreign Exchange to determine the exact US dollar amount of your payment. Your credit card will always be charged in US Dollars. We do not have the ability to charge in other currencies.

If you have any questions, or would like to speak with someone before making your reservation, please give us a call at 1-800-648-8488. Or you can send us an email (monitored regularly: days, nights & weekends):

If you already have a reservation, and simply need to update your payment information, just leave us a note in the comments section below. All reservations are reviewed and processed by hand, and we will happily honor any special requests.

We strongly encourage purchasing travel insurance to protect your tour investment. We have a recommended company called Squaremouth, and will send the information with your Tour Confirmation Package.

We require all of our guests to sign our Nichols Expeditions liability waiver form. This waiver will be sent to you via email when your reservation is processed.  If you’d like, you can preview the waiver here: Waiver Preview

Additionally, we now have a Covid-19 Pandemic Travel Advisory, Acknowledgment and Waiver. This waiver will be sent to you via email when your reservation is processed.  If you’d like, you can preview the waiver here: Covid Waiver Preview
