Our policy

At Travelbase we will fully commit to trips with corona-proof destinations in 2021, that even in the case in a flare-up of the virus we can safely organize the trips. Last summer, travel advises changed from code orange to red and back to yellow and green. Despite this, The Canoe Trip has continued from July 1, 2020 to September 15, 2020. Therefore we expect that in the summer of 2021, if travel restrictions still apply, this will not be a reason for not traveling to Sweden.

We offer you a Superflex Insurance to take away all your doubts, with this insurance you can cancel your trip without any reason before April 1, 2021.

Included in our insurance:

  • 100% cash back, within 7 days on you bank account*.

Into the wild

A canoe trip is by definition corona-proof: you go into the wild and will not meet any people. The social distancing can hardly be greater than on a Swedish lake.

Sweden is corona-proof

Sweden has been the outsider in Europe since the beginning of the Corona crisis. They chose for the strategy of group immunity so there never been any major flare-ups. The infection rate is much lower than many other countries in Europe.

The chance that there will be a major wave of contamination in Sweden in the future is also a lot smaller than the other European countries due to this strategy.
