covid-19 pandemic

The safety of our employees and clientele is paramount at NOVA. We are starting trips June 1st for 2021 and have implemented a COVID-19 mitigation plan with procedures and guidelines as required and recommended by the State of Alaska, OSHA and the CDC. Please bring your face mask and have it on for tour check-in and transit, but it is not required in the rafts or out on the glacier. Email or give us a call if you have any questions about our COVID-19 response. Calls will be returned as soon as possible.
