All our local hosts with trips resuming this year have signed up to the Safe Travels protocols set out by the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) to give you peace of mind while you’re out on your adventure. We’ve also added a new Covid-19 information section on every trip page that clearly sets out any changes to the itinerary or inclusions, along with the specific safety measures being introduced on a particular trip. As a minimum on all trips you can expect:
- Expert guides:
Our local guides are experts in their field: that’s why we’ve worked alongside them for years, and have curated amazing, unique and safe adventures with them. They monitor the local situation in their country and the specific locations where the trip runs very closely and will apply all the appropriate safety measures set out by the WTTC.
- Small groups:
All of our trips have always been small. The average group size is around 10 people. Don’t forget – you can also request a private group on many of our trips too to travel with friends or family.
- Fresh air:
Our adventures get you off the beaten track and into the wild, exactly where you want to be after over 100 days in lockdown.
- Solo Travellers & Accommodation:
We get a lot of solo travellers on our trips – around 60% on average in fact. So if you are a solo traveller sharing a room with someone, your host will try to ensure you stay with the same roommate (or tent mate) for the entire trip to support “social bubbles”. We also have a ‘Solo Private Room / Tent Upgrade” option available on many trips to make it easier to have your own space.
- Excellent hygiene standards:
All hosts have introduced enhanced sanitation, disinfection, and deep cleaning practices for all equipment, gear and facilities used as part of a trip, including transportation, with a specific focus on high-frequency touch points.
- Responsibility from fellow travellers:
We ask all travellers to respect local requirements and to bring a face covering – be it buffs or face-masks. In line with the WTTC Safe Travel protocols, every effort will be made to have hand sanitiser available, but we strongly recommend bringing your own. We also ask every traveller to ensure they are fit to travel, and if you are in any doubt – we’ve made things as flexible and simple as possible if you do need to cancel or move your booking.
All trips that are resuming will have a new Covid-19 information section that sets out any changes to the itinerary or inclusions, along with the specific safety measures being introduced on that trip.
