For International Travelers:
On January 21’st, 2021, President Biden issued a proclamation to limit travel into the US from certain countries, including the United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, and the European Schengen Area. The purpose of this proclamation is to prevent the spread of COVID-19 variants globally.
The proclamation will be reviewed (and potentially renewed) every 30 days as necessary. Below Is the White House briefing on the border closures.
White House Statement
Within the Wild Alaska Adventure Company understands the unique challenges this is placing on travel to the U.S. and Alaska in the moment. We have many guests coming from these countries that are concerned about travel into 2021. But we are hopeful restrictions will be lifted shortly.
In light of concern, we are offering the following:
- Please keep your plans to visit us and your reservations intact. As we draw closer to the 60-day prior to travel mark, if the bans have not been lifted, we will refund your deposit.
- If you prefer to cancel now, we offer you the option to have 50% of your deposit refunded, 50% forfeited.
- You are always able to move your reservations to a future date without penalty or increase in package pricing.
- You are always able to transfer your package to friends or family without penalty or increase in package pricing.
Please reach out to owner Kirsten Dixon personally or to our reservations manager Lindsay Mondschein if you wish to talk through your options in managing your reservation with us.
For Domestic Travelers:
The State of Alaska requires out-of-state travelers to arrive with a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of start of travel. Proof of this will need to be shown at the airport and at any subsequent air carriers used between lodges (Rust’s Flying Service, for example).

Travel Insurance: Within the Wild does not provide refunds for travel delays or cancellations – including outcamp excursions – due to weather or illness or non-compliance of Covid-19 mandates. We highly recommend purchasing travel insurance. Our reservations office can give those resources.
