COVID 19 SAFETY POLICIES
As a travel community focused on adventure, wellness, and new experiences, our highest priority is and has always been your health, safety, and wellbeing.
At Get Lost, our philosophy is rooted in proactive planning. Our protocols have always been strong. We have always been serious about your health. And so, we continue to take proactive action.
As you plan your retreat or journey with Get Lost, know that we’re doing everything we can to do what’s best for our guests. We follow – and, whenever possible, exceed – local and international recommendations and regulations. We are consistent with our cleaning, hygiene, sanitization, and other policies. And, we’re constantly implementing and innovating measures to keep you safe, healthy, and happy.
We’re taking every extra step we can, so you can travel with peace of mind.
When you travel small – in other words, with fewer guests, staying in low-density accommodations, and choosing only small group activities – you effectively distance yourself from the crowds and naturally reduce your exposure to COVID-19.
There’s no comparison to large resorts, hotels and cruises: At Get Lost, our retreats host just 30-50 guests on 4-6 boats. That means our guests limit their exposure by sharing their travels with only <10 other guests. It’s the elusive balance between social distancing and standard travel.
In lieu of major tourist sites teeming with people, our retreats favor tiny islands and remote locales with small populations. These untouristed destinations not only promise wild adventure and a way to support local culture, but also provide natural protection from the exposure you’d encounter in packed places.
According to the experts, recommended activities today are both outdoors and distanced. That's naturally our style: ocean kayaking, mountain hiking, snorkeling and scuba diving, SUP - all the get-out-in-the-sun, revel-in-the-fresh-air fun you crave - Incorporate the adventure of novelty and the thrill of new experience, without forced proximity to strangers.
Even our university classes, yoga sessions, and other retreat sessions are held outdoors, in the fresh air and open spaces.
