In a matter of weeks, Covid-19 turned our world upside down. Our movement was restricted, families disconnected and borders closed. However, we are slowly getting back to "normal" and there's no better time to discover all the world-class adventures in your back yard.
On the 29.04.2020 the Swiss Government announced an easement of restrictions in Sports under COVID-19-Ordinance 2 (Art. 6, Abs. 4). The Federal Department for Sport (BASPO) requires each association to supply a hygiene concept in accordance with the new regulations. The Hygiene Concepts are evaluated by the BASPO and when approved, published on the Swiss Olympic website.
On 01.05.2020 the BASPO approved the Hygiene Concept prepared by the Swiss Outdoor Association. As a member of SOA, Outdoor Interlaken AG has implemented Hygiene Rules according to this industry concept.
The following activities are currently available. Please check our website for availability and opening times:
As of 08.06.2020, the maximum group size under the regulations of Phase 3 is lifted to 300 people. 2m social distance is recommended by the BAG and when not possible, contact details must be collected. This is standard procedure on our activities.
In many cases private groups are available. Please check our pricing options or contact us for details.
Because our activities take place outdoors in the fresh air, social distancing is relatively easy to implement. You won't notice many changes to the experience you have on your activity. Participants will be required to have more space around them and your guide's and instructors will handle you and your equipment differently, but the new rules won't harm your experience.
The main differences will be felt before and after the trip. This includes the following:
Families and members of the same household do not have to follow the recommended social distancing rules.
No. Our group sizes are not affected by any restrictions.
With the current regulations in place we require people to pay in advance by credit card or invoice.
Showers are still available on all trips which previously included showers.
Yes, with a maximum of 4 people per changing room.
You will be asked to use hand disinfectant and follow the instructions and signs around our properties and vehicles.
