Thank you for considering Northern Alaska Tour Company for your Arctic Circle experience.
As you prepare for your Alaska vacation we want to provide you with the following information. At this time the state of Alaska has a travel mandate in place until June 2, 2020.
Alaska Health Mandate 10: All individuals arriving in Alaska - visitors and residents alike - are required to proceed from the airport to a designated quarantine location to self-isolate for 14 days after arriving in Alaska and monitor for illness. This mandate is currently in place until June 2 and will be evaluated on a daily basis as the state of Alaska opens back up.
We are monitoring the situation and keeping posted by the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization, as well as travel partners and professional associations on best practices once travel is again possible.
In the meantime we are taking reservations for dates beyond June 2* and would be happy to talk with you about options you may want to consider for your Alaska vacation. Due to the closure of tours we have limited our hours for phone coverage. You can reach us Monday - Friday between 9:00 AM - 5:30 PM Alaska Time.
When travel is open again we plan to follow recommended guidelines on what we can do as a tour operator to keep our guests, coworkers and communities safe. This may mean more cleanings throughout the day, wearing of mask requirements and / or encouragements (potentially by guests and coworkers) and/or health screening of guests.
In addition we would encourage travelers to follow recommended health guidelines and use trusted resources to make travel decisions.
- Stay healthy when you travel - stay hydrated, rest plenty and take your medications/supplements as you would at home.
- Practice good hygiene: wash your hands frequently, for at least 20 seconds or if washing is not available use hand sanitizer. (on this note we would encourage you to bring a supply from home - as pending what supplies are like when you travel you may not find any in stores where you go).
- Avoid touching your face - eyes, mouth and nose.
- Cough or sneeze into your elbow or disposable paper/tissue.
The following three resources are trusted sources to use as you make your travel decisions. You may also wish to add your own state/countries health department for guidance for travelling out of and back in to your area.
We love to share Alaska's Arctic and we look forward to when we can open and share with you.
*Some communities within Alaska may have different opening dates then Alaska and this may affect our Undiscovered Arctic Adventures to Anaktuvuk, Fort Yukon, Kaktovik, and Utqiagvik. We will do our best to communicate to any guest booked on these adventures the status of their adventures due to the community being open or not for visitors.
