The health and safety of our guests, guides, and staff is a top priority for us here at Dolomite Mountains. The Coronavirus (Covid-19) has posed a challenge to commerce and travel world-wide, leaving many would-be travelers wondering what to do. We understand your concerns, and want to assure you that we are monitoring the situation closely, following the guidance of Italian national and International health organizations (see list below).
The Italian government has placed restrictions on all of Italy, limiting public activities and travel from, to, and within Italy until 25 April 2020. Additional restrictions have been added to limit the types of businesses that can remain open.
We know that Dolomite Mountains guests are intrepid travelers. And we believe the best action we can take for our guests is to continue to create unique, active outdoor experiences that are beyond extraordinary. Therefore, as of today, we plan to run all our trips this summer unless travel is restricted by local or global authorities. We have been, and will continue to communicate with our travelers on a case by case basis about any potential changes.
If you still have concerns, the following resources can provide you with additional information:
- The World Health Organization (WHO) has been issuing daily updates on its website.
- The Italian National Institute of Health (Istituto Superiore di Sanità, ISS) and the Italian Ministry of Health (Minstero della Salute).
- For US Citizens, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is an excellent resource.
- For current travel, existing bookings, and/or planning for the coming summer in the Dolomites:
Again, this is a fluid situation, which we are monitoring carefully. The health and safety of all our guests, guides, staff, friends, and family is our top priority. We will continue to update this page, and contact guests directly if new information becomes available or if your departure is impacted. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We sincerely hope to see you on one our trips this year, in the Dolomites and Beyond.
Our thoughts and well wishes go out to all those who are dealing with this virus. We are grateful that all Dolomite Mountains guides, guests, and staff are currently known to be healthy.
