COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS & REQUIREMENTS

Since our founding, Arctic Dog Adventure Co. has been committed to responsibly exploring the Alaskan backcountry. We are thankful for our fantastic community of clients and for your patience and flexibility as we have adapted our policies and schedule in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

We have canceled all husky hikes this summer. We anticipate opening for winter dog sled tours as soon as the snow falls, with updated and adapted tours.

 

We are fortunate to live in the expansive Far North, where opportunities for fresh air and solitude are readily available. As we prepare for the winter season, we are looking at how we run our tours, and how we can adapt our experiences for the safety and comfort of our clients and guides.

 

We have updated our operating protocols to reflect the impact COVID-19 has had on our global community. We need to highlight the fact that we cannot eliminate all risk of catching COVID-19 on our trips, but from reducing trip sizes to increasing sanitation measures, please be assured we are doing our best to operate safely and responsibility:

 

  • We are paying attention to local, state, and federal health mandates, and operating accordingly.*

  • We are implementing the Adventure Travel Trade Association’s COVID-19 Health & Safety Guidelines.

  • We have updated our booking and cancellation policies.

  • We will require a health declaration form at the start of each trip.

  • We will require masks for day tours  .

  • We are spacing out trip dates to allow for thorough cleaning and sanitation of gear used on previous trips.

  • Multi-day tours, during which social distancing is simply not possible, will be offered as private tours only, and we will require proof of a negative COVID19 test within 72 hours of arrival to Arctic Dog. 

 

We are releasing our 2021 trip dates soon & we hope to see you this winter!

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns. 

Best,

Lisbet Norris
