Information on Covid-19

We are happy to see more and more countries easing their restrictions and opening their borders for travellers.

Per today the following travel restrictions apply:

EU/Schengen: Our destinations, with the exception of Russia, are part of the Schengen area. Normally one can travel freely between the Schengen countries, but due to Covid-19 most countries have implemented internal border control. EU/Schengen is opening up for travellers from a selection of other countries, but still you might not be able to enter all our destination (see details below). Read more about travel to and from EU/Schengen.

Norway: Tourists from Denmark, Finland and Iceland are allowed from June 15 without quarantine requirement. From July 15 Norway will also open the border to most European countries, based on a set of health measures and analysis. Read more and find an overview of countries allowed.
