Why Travel With Alpin Luxe?
COVID-19: How Do We Move On?
These are unprecented times and we must remain vigilant, healthy and safe. However, our lives cannot remain at a standstill. Our innate nature is to travel, socialize and partake in healthy activities. At Alpin Luxe, we strive to minimize risk for our travelers and for those in the locations we visit, as we navigate this new way of life in a post-COVID world. Our trips focus on sports which carry a low risk of virus transmission: Skiing, golfing and cycling – all in the fresh mountain air of the Alps, easily maintaining social distancing, and away from crowded metropolitan areas. This is a chance to truly experience what we call: “The Alpine Lifestyle”.
When Europe once again opens up to Americans, we have designed some of the most incredible trips for 2021 and beyond. We have decided to make adventuring in the Alps even more fun and meaningful by pairing our trips with a host of celebrities from the ski and bike world. Imagine learning from legends like AJ Kitt, Glen Plake, Jeff Olson, Tamara McKinney, Brenda Buglione, Martin Bell and Tyler Hamilton and more. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so book now as these trips will sell out quickly!
Our Safety Measures:
At Alpin Luxe, effort has been made to make your week in Europe not only safe, but extraordinary as well. Like everything in life, we adapt so that we all can enjoy our favorite adventures.
We select only unique and less frequented ski resorts which allows everyone to comfortably practice social distancing. Whether it’s the Zillertal Valley and Soelden, Austria / Zermatt, Switzerland or the Dolomites, crowds are always minimal due to the enormous size of the resorts. No high traffic tourist destinations.
We only take small groups or families – a total of 6-8 people per trip, so you can feel safe amongst friends and family.
You’re safe in the mountain air, getting exercise and eating healthy, farm to table cuisine. Our trips are meant to be a celebration of life with close friends and family, and avoid the risk that comes with partying like a rock star in crowded nightclubs.
Our European ski destinations have more skiing acreage and lifts, including multiple connected resorts – with many more outdoor dining options available and fewer lift lines.
Rest assured, all our European resort properties are well prepared during COVID and maintain comprehensive hygiene standards across the board. Remember, the central EU countries maintained strict isolation for three months to nearly eliminate cases. Here are some of their safety measures in place:
• Rooms and Suites are only booked at 50% of capacity to maintain a lower volume of guests.
• Check in & check out will be conducted digitally prior to your stay to keep interaction with staff to a minimum.
• Dining will offer limited spacing between tables, as well as digital menus and other security measures.
• Spas are under strict and more frequent cleaning and disinfecting cycles. Studies show that COVID cannot survive bleach cleansing, and environments with chlorine. Again, strict guidelines determine how many guests can use the steam and treatment rooms at a time.
A Note On Travel:
Amidst constantly changing information and recommendations, we understand an overabundance of caution when deciding whether or not to travel abroad. Based on our precautions and our best understanding of the current situation, we believe it will be safe to travel internationally once the borders are open — if one is prepared and follows travel best practices. This includes wearing a mask, appropriate social distance where possible, and a two-week self quarantine upon returning home. Please see the CDC and WHO websites for the most up-to-date guidelines.
Until there is a vaccine readily available, we are currently requesting that all travelers take a COVID-19 viral test before departure. Bring the test results with you, as proof that you have tested negative for the virus. Should you receive a positive test in the days leading up to the trip, please see our updated Booking and Cancellation policy.
