Wellness Protocol

We look forward to welcoming you on tour soon! We understand that traveling during these times requires additional preparation and planning in order to foster a healthy and safe on-tour experience for you and others on your tour. In addition to the standard Wellness Protocols that meet or exceed CDC recommendations and international travel industry guidelines in place for all Orbridge tours, the following are what you can expect on this tour.

This page is updated as new information becomes available from local, state, and international agencies. The environment for travel is constantly evolving, and as such, it is advised that you check this page regularly to be aware of the most current information for your tour.

COVID-19 Testing Requirements

  • The State of Alaska recommends visitors traveling to Alaska should take a qualifying COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to their arrival into the state. Travelers must complete the Travel Declaration Form in the Alaska Travel Portal before arrival, and should submit their negative COVID-19 results into the Travel Portal or show proof of a negative test to screeners at the airport upon arrival.
  • Travelers do not need to obtain a negative COVID-19 test if the traveler provides proof of a previously positive result of a molecular-based COVID-19 test within 90 days of departure, and the traveler is asymptomatic.
  • Travelers who are fully vaccinated (defined as more than two weeks following receipt of the second dose in a two-dose series, or receipt of one dose of a single dose vaccine) should follow pre-travel testing protocols.
  • Guests will be kindly expected to attend the tour group welcome event, during which guests will be asked to complete a brief health questionnaire. If guests arrive to a tour exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms or indicate anything on the health questionnaire of concern, guests will be asked to remove themselves from the group and unfortunately will not be able to participate.

Entry/Travel Restrictions

  • It is important for you to review your state’s COVID-19 testing requirements to determine any state-specific protocol upon your return.
  • Some sites visited on the itinerary may have modified service or hours of operation. Your Orbridge Expedition Leader will share any updates each day with guests.

Destination Specific Wellness Protocols

  • Most local municipalities require face coverings to be worn while in public. Guests are expected to follow local policies.
  • Businesses such as restaurants and cafés may be operating at limited capacity. Your Orbridge Expedition Leader will advise you of any local restrictions so that you can best plan your time allotted for independent exploration.

In addition to these Destination Specific Wellness Protocols, Orbridge wellness protocols will be followed on all tours. We invite you to familiarize yourself with what Orbridge is doing, and what is expected by guests while on tour, by visiting orbridge.com/wellness.
