COVID-19

Over the past several year health and safety are primary concerns when making travel decisions. Our Covid-19 safety and health polices will give you peace of mind when you start planning your trip. The safety and wellbeing of our travellers, leaders, and staff are our highest priority. Our health and safety policies are being implemented by new standards with increased hygiene and sanitation in line with recommendations from the World Health Organization.

Before travelling, we recommend you check your country’s travel advisory, the airline mandatory PCR test requirements and the World Health Organization website for the most up to date information about destinations and permitted travel from each country.

We will require a negative COVID-19 test proof of not less than 96-hour validity before joining a trip if it is a requirement of entry for the country. If you are not feeling well prior to travelling, please stay at home and contact us. We will deal with the situation accordingly. During their stay we ask all travellers to continue monitoring their health throughout their travels, complete self-screenings and report any possible COVID-19 symptoms to their tour leader. If they are displaying any symptoms or have any health issues, we will follow the advice of local health authorities with the medical assistance and treatments.
