2021 SUMMER BOOKINGS – FLEXIBLE TERMS

Flexible booking terms are available for travel dates between May 15 and September 15, 2021! For details please review our booking-cancellation-terms policy.


Requirements for Visitors to Alaska:

The State of Alaska is requiring all visitors to be tested for COVID-19 prior to arrival in Alaska.

All visitors to arrive in Alaska with a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to flight departure or proof of a pending test result from a test taken within 72 hours prior to flight departure. If tested 72 hours before departure and awaiting results, travelers will need to upload proof of test taken into the Alaska Travel Portal and quarantine while waiting. If visitors arrive in Alaska without a pre-test, testing is available at the airport for $250 per test. The traveler will be required to quarantine while waiting on results (it typically takes 3 to 10 days for the test results to come back).

You will be asked to minimize interaction with the community for 5 days and preferably take a second test 5 to 14 days after arrival in Alaska. Minimizing interactions does not mean quarantine, but you do need to take more precautions than the usual COVID safety advice, such as when you buy food, choose take out or order delivery if possible. Wearing a face mask/covering in public areas will also be important.  If you have to be in an indoor space, such as taking a short flight or riding in a shuttle to get to your lodge or outdoor activity, then everyone involved should wash their hands thoroughly and wear a face mask/covering.

COVID-19 Home Test Kits:
If there are limitations to testing in your home town, there are FDA approved home test kits that are also accepted by the State of Alaska. Those are:
Pixel System from Labcorp
Everlywell COVID-19 Test Home Collection Kit
Vault Health
Picture Genetics

Please read the official State of Alaska Covid-19 Traveler Information page and the Frequently Asked Questions information page. If you have questions or comments about the government mandates, the State of Alaska traveler hotline is 907-646-3322.

As you prepare to fly to Alaska for your next GREAT adventure, be sure to check with the current TSA guidelines as well as your airline, as policies may differ. The State of Alaska also requires you to complete a Traveler Declaration Form. We recommend downloading it at home before going to the airport.
