For the coming winter season 2022/2023 we require from every guest a proof of two
completed vaccination shots, starting with tours September 1st 2022!
We believe in science and still regard the whole Covid 19-situation as very serious and we try to be as safe as possible with our tours.
There are certain things to mention: As of August 2021, the State of Alaska is not requiring negative tests for entering the State anymore but still recommends it for non-vaccinated travelers. Here the link for more information: www.covid19.alaska.gov/Travelers and Alaska Case Dashboard
Also we as Aurora Bear try our best to keep Alaska, you, the other guests and us as safe as possible.
Alaska is a huge State with only a small number of people but also with very limited medical resources like hospital beds. Our remote communities are even more vulnerable – villages often do not even have their own doctor, so an infectious disease can be catastrophic in such a community.
We also take the following precautions:
For the coming winter season 2022/2023 we require from every guest a proof of 2 completed vaccination shots, starting with tours September 1st 2022!
For guests who can’t be vaccinated because of medical reasons, we ask for an official proof, issued by a medical doctor. These guests and also children under 5 years who can’t get yet vaccinated, need a negative test taken less than 72h before their departure to Alaska.
We limit the number of guests on our tours, so that guests can keep their distance from each other while enjoying a tea or a hot chocolate.
We ask all guests to please wear a mask during the tour while we are inside the van and in situations when we are very close together – like looking together at the back of a camera.
If guests don’t have their own mask, we will provide one.
If guests disagree on that, we respect this point of view, but the guests will be not allowed on the tour and will receive a refund of the tour price.
Since all tours are hosted in our private home we take more precautions than ever to clean, disinfect and sanitize thoroughly every day.
Beverages, food and snacks will be provided in safe and proper manner.
