We’re looking forward to welcoming you to the mountains this winter season. In view of the exceptional circumstances caused by COVID-19, we are required to take specific measures in relation to the organization of our tours and courses in the interests of all our health.
Our offers can be carried out with the normal group size of up to 10 participants and one guide. All participating persons must undergo a self-check including a rapid- od self-test, respectively must be fully vaccinated or recovered from Covid-19 (see below).
We are complying with the requirements of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) and following the protection concept of the Swiss Mountain Guide Association (SBV). The mountain huts and hotels we visit must also have implemented a protection concept in accordance with government guidelines. The same applies for mountain railways and lifts.
All offers can be booked normally. If you are unable to take part in a booked offer due to a Covid-19 illness or quarantine obligation, we offer you the option of changing to an alternative date/offer free of charge or refunding your credit in the form of a voucher. You also have the option of taking out cancellation insurance when you make your booking, which also covers Covid-19 illnesses or quarantine obligations.
If you have any questions or require further clarification about the situation with regard to COVID-19, we will be happy to provide additional information.
