Travel Info

Important flight, insurance and equipment information

Sandrine (Switzerland): It was an amazing trip. A good balance between traveling and instructions, had a good time and some good laughs. It's probably one of the best trips I went to. I'm used to doing that kind of trips, went to snowboard camps in Whistler and wakeboarding camps in Orlando but it was nothing like Access Trips. I'll probably register for another trip this summer. I'll definitely check Access when looking for a vacation
