We’re looking forward to welcoming you to the mountains. 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 a guide. All participants must present a valid Covid certificate at the start of the tour or course.
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.

All persons participating in a tour or course (guests, mountain-/hiking guides) must present a valid Covid certificate at the welcome of the offer. The certificate will be checked by the mountain-/hiking guides. For the control, an identity document is required from each person (e.g. passport, ID, driving license, Swisspass). Further checking can be done in huts, hotels or restaurants.
Persons who are neither fully vaccinated nor recovered can get the certificate with a PCR or antigen test. PCR tests are valid for 72 hours, antigen tests are valid for 48 hours. After that, the test must be renewed. Thus, for a three-day tour, a PCR test taken the evening before the tour is sufficient.

We ask guests who undergo a COVID-19 test up to ten days after a visited offer to provide us the information immediately if the result is positive.
Group size/distancing rules
We are operating in groups of a maximum of 10 people, plus a mountain/hiking guide additionally. The 1.5-meter distance will be maintained whenever possible.
Travel and transfers
Please note the following requirements:
In the case of activities taking place over several days, we will stay in hotels and mountain huts that can guarantee compliance with hygiene and distancing rules.
