START INTO OUR 10.th elooa WINTER SEASON!
Dear elooa community,
finally we can start again! Winter is just around the corner and we are starting our 10th anniversary season. Due to the current situation, we are facing an exciting task, but that will not take away the joy of snowboarding! Of course, there are now a few new rules that you have to pay attention to, but what is safer than having sports and fun outdoors in small groups?
As a certified tour operator, we have always specialized in small groups and selected destinations in order to create unique experiences. In times of COVID-19, this fits very well and with our hygiene concept, great flexibility and special booking modalities and cancellation conditions, we guarantee that you will continue to experience safe travel and unforgettable moments.
We have reviewed all of our health and safety guidelines and are implementing new minimum standards aimed at greater hygiene. These correspond to the recommendations of the World Health Organization WHO and follow the Safe Travel protocols of the World Travel & Tourism Council WTTC for tour operators. On the basis of our experience with groups, in addition to all hygiene measures, rules are also installed that we consider to be useful with regard to your camp experience and learning success!
Here you can now find all the important rules that apply to our Camps & Adventures 2020/2021:
Physical distance is practiced as much as possible during all events. Our coaches and guides will promote shared responsibility for social distancing. We will implement the use of masks in situations with a higher risk of infection where it gets tight.
> Maintain a distance of 1.5 m!
> Pay attention to hygiene and hand disinfection!
> Please always have your everyday mask with you!
As a certified tour operator, we have always specialized in small groups and selected destinations in order to create unique experiences. We will not change anything about this and continue to reduce the group sizes for coaching and in the hotel.
> Participants are divided into small groups of up to 8 people maximum on the mountain!
> Groups of up to 6 people maximum are divided up in the accommodation!
> Welcome evening and video coaching take place in small groups with distance rules!
Symptoms of illness before the camp:
We ask you to check your health for Covid-19 symptoms before starting your trip and to inform us of any symptoms!
> Fever, severe cough, sore throat and loss of smell are considered symptoms.
> If you have symptoms shortly before the camp, please stay at home!
> In this case, elooa allows you to change your booking to another camp free of charge.
All elooa camps can currently take place safely. For the start of the season there are currently certain quarantine regulations for some federal states, which we are of course monitoring and adjusting our schedules accordingly. We are closely monitoring the situation and will notify you directly if your trip should be impaired due to COVID-19 and associated travel restrictions. Nevertheless, please inform yourself about possible PCR test and quarantine regulations on your return journey in your respective federal state!
We also support you in advance with planning your journey and all other organizational questions to get you safely to your destination and back home.
So let's go: secure your spot for the winter now! We look forward to see you!

We are constantly monitoring the global situation and would like to make sure that your future travel plans are safe and assure you that we support our customers as best we can. Due to the continuing global effects of the coronavirus COVID-19 and the possible probability that the borders will be closed, we have prepared ourselves for this and offer a free cancellation until 31.10.2020! We are closely looking at the situation and will notify you immediately if COVID-19 and quarantine restrictions affect your trip.
If a trip cannot take place in the respective country due to the pandemic, e.g. the borders to the country are closed, we will always try to offer an alternative. Thanks to our contacts worldwide and the small group size, we have always made our customers happy and brought them safely into the snow even before the pandemic. If this happens, you also always have the option of a free rebooking or get a free credit for the travel price.
We have reviewed all of our health and safety policies and are implementing new minimum standards aimed at improving hygiene. These comply with the recommendations of the World Health Organization WHO and follow the Safe Travel protocols of the World Travel & Tourism Council WTTC for tour operators. We recommend that you read your government's travel advice before you travel and search the World Health Organization WHO website for the most up-to-date information about travel destinations and allowable travel from any country. Snowboarding, Splitboarding and Surfing naturally involves social distance. However, there are often high traffic areas where the transmission risk of COVID-19 is higher. Before starting the journey, we will ask all guests to check their physical condition themselves. If guests have symptoms, however mild they are, or are in a household where someone has symptoms, they are advised to stay at home.
During the camps and adventures, we ask guests and staff to monitor their own health and in case of COVID-19 symptoms to inform us accordingly. elooa reserves the right to send guests or employees home who have symptoms of COVID-19 and cannot or do not want to be tested to avoid risk to others. As much physical distance as possible is practiced during all events. Our coaches and guides will promote social distancing. We will implement the use of face masks in situations with a higher risk of virus transmission. We also provide sufficient access to disinfectants and encourage all guests to clean their hands when entering a building or before starting an activity.
