IMPORTANT HEALTH NOTE: We welcome all travelers, but request that you be in good physical condition in order to enjoy the retreat to the fullest. As a participant you must be able to traverse uneven terrain, climb steps, and get on and off shuttles on your own. Additionally, Eranos is not wheelchair accessible. We regret that we cannot provide individual assistance. We reserve the right to remove at any time anyone whose physical condition, in our opinion, compromises the operation of the retreat or detracts from your enjoyment or safety or that of other participants. In that event, Pacifica assumes no financial responsibility for any unused portion of the tour. The signed application is also a release of liability required for all participants. A medical certificate signed by a physician may be required for participants over 70 years of age.


TRAVEL: We Highly Recommend Travel Insurance; a supplemental insurance that covers the costs of unforeseen medical, travel & emergency expenses if you need to cancel or cut short your trip. You will receive more information on travel insurance with your confirmation materials.
