Covid-19 Travel Advice and Policy

All trips booked from 01 July 2020 onwards are scheduled to go ahead as planned.

Updated Terms:

– Your final balance payment is due 5 weeks before your trip begins (reduced from 10 weeks)

– When you have paid your balance to us at 5 weeks pre-departure, and the trip is then unable to go ahead due to Covid-19 FOC advice between the time of 5 weeks to 1 week pre-departure, we can still either a) reschedule your trip to a later date this summer, or b) credit your paid balance as a trip voucher for any future trip with Adventure Base
– If you would like to cancel your trip between now and 5 weeks pre-departure, you won’t need to make any further payments and we have waived all cancellation charges. Your deposit will be carried over to any future trip with us.

Please contact us if you would like to discuss any of the above terms for your booking.

News on travel to France for our Mont Blanc trips.

The French border is ‘closed’ to non-essential travel until June 15th.

News on the opening of mountain huts on Mont Blanc

The huts are ready to open from the 2nd of June onwards with 80 to 85% of places available to promote social distancing of the security teams, according to this latest article from Le Dauphine. For small isolated shelters, with a fragile model, reopening is not guaranteed. Some shelters (not all) will operate at reduced capacity. In the Mont-Blanc massif, according to the French Federation of Alpine and Mountain Clubs (FFCAM), all large buildings, such as Argentière, Albert 1er, Cosmiques, or Le Goûter and Tête Rousse on the way to the roof of the Alps, are ready to open with 80 to 85% of places available to promote social distancing.

We are aware that the situation is constantly changing so we will update the above terms when necessary. Our aim throughout this crisis is to be transparent with all of our customers and offer our help and advice wherever possible. Our focus is on the safety and wellbeing of all of our customers and our staff during this time.
