The calming sound of the river some distance below you settles any nerves you may have. The path in front of you may not be very wide, but it is wide enough for an experienced trekker like you. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and you remember that it is your love of nature that keeps you gorge walking whenever you can.
Before you set out on your walk, make sure that if an accident were to happen, your insurance would keep you covered. Atlas Travel® insurance from HCC Medical Insurance Services (HCCMIS®) can give you peace of mind as you travel because we know how adventurous you can be.
While many insurance companies charge extra to cover extreme sports, Atlas Travel insurance includes coverage for gorge walking injuries that may occur while abroad at no additional charge. We offer several different Atlas Travel plans depending on your destination for gorge walking and how many are in your group.
Are you planning on visiting a gorge in the U.S. or Canada? Then you need to check out Atlas America®. For those traveling to gorges outside of the U.S., we offer Atlas International®. If you plan on traveling with a group of five or more, be sure to check out Atlas Group® for a discounted rate!
Gorges exist around the world, so depending on what type of gorge walking you want to do, you can select from a large variety. Some gorges are rockier, while others provide more of a forested mountain atmosphere. Check out this quick list of the most beautiful gorges around the world before you decide where you want to go:
