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 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 can adapt our experiences for the safety and comfort of our clients and guides.
We need to stress 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 responsibly:
We are paying attention to local, state, and federal health mandates, and operating accordingly.*
We have implemented 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 screening form at the start of each tour.
We will require masks for day tours.
We will have hand sanitizer available.
We will practice social distancing.
We have a COVID19 Response Plan.
We are spacing out trip dates to allow for thorough cleaning and sanitation of gear used on previous trips.
Multi-day tours, including Aurora & Cabin Overnights, during which social distancing is not possible, will require proof of a negative COVID19 test taken within 72 hours of trip start date.
