We feel that our offerings are more important than ever as many people are experiencing significantly elevated levels of stress and anxiety related to the coronavirus.
Our trips offer a respite to disconnect from the constant barrage of provoking news headlines and connect to the healing power of nature. Research shows that spending just 20 minutes in nature provides stress relief through the lowering of cortisol (a stress hormone) in the body. Imagine what a full day of fresh air and sunshine can do to refuel your spirit.
The occurrence of the coronavirus provides an opportunity for all of us to examine our health-related habits as they relate to not only the coronavirus but the cold and flu as well. It is important that we all take steps to maintain individual and community health. Our guests’ health, safety and well-being are of the highest priority to us.
Here at Get in the Wild, we are making a few adjustments with this in mind:
First, as the global community works to minimize the spread of the coronavirus, any half- or full-day trips that are booked for dates in March and April will receive a complimentary upgrade to a private booking. This means that it is extremely unlikely that you will encounter another human being, besides your guide, during your adventure. We hope that this provides guests with peace of mind to relax and enjoy their experience without concerns about the health of other guests. Please note that all half- and full-day trips still require a minimum of two guests per booking.
Second, we will be implementing a deeper cleaning of guest canyoneering equipment after each trip. While we are fortunate to guide adventures in a sunny environment, which in and of itself provides a level of protection from the virus as the sun’s ultra-violet rays destroy the virus’ proteins within minutes, we will be spraying equipment with coronavirus-specific disinfectant between trips as an extra precaution.
Third, any guest booked for a trip in March or April can opt to reschedule their adventure to a later date, within the next 12 months, without additional fees. Date changes must be requested at least 21 days in advance of the scheduled trip.
We encourage travelers to make informed decisions and take the precautions they feel are necessary for their health and safety. Get In The Wild’s doors remain open and committed to offering wilderness adventures in an extraordinary landscape.
