Please find below updated information on the current situation and how this may impact your reservation or your activity. This page will be updated regularly to provide you with the latest information.
Are activities open for bookings?
Government restrictions on activities have been lifted in most countries where Manawa operates, with some local exceptions. In the majority of cases, we are therefore open for reservations. If in doubt, do not hesitate to contact us!
In some regions of specific areas, Covid-19 outbreaks have prompted authorities to reinstate certain restrictions, which may impact the organizing of outdoor activities.
Such regions at the moment include (non-exhaustive list) :
To mitigate the spread of Covid-19, everyone is advised to avoid social events, to keep a safe distance to others, and to stay at home if they have any symptoms. The Public Health Agency of Sweden urges all recent travelers from Great Britain or South Africa to Sweden to stay at home for a minimum of seven days, to avoid contact with others as far as possible, and to be tested as soon as possible after arrival (with follow-up tests five days after arrival).
The New Zealand border is currently closed to almost all travelers to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Travelers to New Zealand from all countries are tested for COVID-19 and a 14-day managed quarantine or isolation is mandatory. You are legally required to obtain a Managed Isolation Allocation system voucher confirming your place in a managed isolation facility before boarding a flight.
New Zealand is at Alert Level 1.
Mandatory COVID-19 tests: It has been decided that all persons who travel to Norway must take a mandatory COVID-19 test upon arrival, including Norwegian citizens. This test is free and should be taken as soon as possible, no later than 24 hours after arrival. Anyone arriving from “red” countries must still present a negative corona test certificate when they arrive in Norway. You must take the test no more than 72 hours before you enter the country.
If you are entering the Federal Republic of Germany by land, sea, or air and have spent time in a risk area within the 10 days prior to entry, you are required – bar the exceptions listed below –to proceed directly to your own home, or other suitable accommodation, immediately after arrival and remain there exclusively for a period of 10 days after entry into the country (quarantine) .A risk area is any country or region outside of the Federal Republic of Germany for which, at the time of entry into the Federal Republic of Germany, an increased risk of infection with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus exists. The Robert Koch Institute maintains a continuously updated list of risk areas at the following link: https://www.rki.de/covid-19-
Adjusted Alert level 3 during Coronavirus COVID-19 lockdown: every person is confined to his or her place of residence from 21H00 until 06H00 daily, except in areas declared a hotspot unless a person has been granted official permission otherwise.
People who have spent time in a country or area with an increased risk of infection and then enter Switzerland must go into quarantine. The countries and areas affected are set down in a list. A negative test does not exempt you from the mandatory quarantine requirement.The mandatory quarantine requirement is governed by the list valid at the moment of entry into Switzerland.
You must not leave, or be outside of your home except where necessary. You should only go out for medical appointments, exercise or if it is essential.
Passengers coming to Iceland can choose between either undergoing two tests for COVID-19 with a 5-day quarantine interval between tests until the results of the second test have been discovered or avoiding testing by undergoing a 14-day quarantine from their date of arrival to Iceland.
On 10 December, the Finnish Government decided to extend the restrictions on entry into Finland until 12 January 2021. This applies to Schengen countries, non-Schengen EU countries and the United Kingdom. Flights between the UK and Finland will be discontinued for 2 weeks starting 21 December 2020 at noon until 11.59 on 4 January 2021.
Can I book now and cancel later?
The majority of activities available on Manawa use a FLEXIBLE or SUPER FLEXIBLE cancellation policy. You can, therefore, book now and either cancel or reschedule later AT NO COST:
- up to 24 hours before the start of the activity for SUPER FLEXIBLE
- up to 4 days before the start of the activity for FLEXIBLE
Should you want to cancel your activity, you can do so automatically through our cancellation form. No proof or documentation from you will be required. Cancellations are always refunded directly to your original payment method (please allow a 48 hours delay for refunds to be processed).
For more information regarding our cancellation policies, please visit our cancellation policy page.
What if the activity itself is canceled because of restrictions?
In this situation, you would be automatically reimbursed in full, in cash, within 48 hours of such cancellation being confirmed. Unlike at many other sport/leisure/travel companies, Manawa always reimburses clients in CASH and does not issue vouchers.
Health and Safety measures
To protect your health and safety, as well as that of others, our partnering instructors are reorganizing their activities to comply with new local regulations.
This may involve wearing masks during some activities, limiting group sizes, and/or stringent cleaning and sanitizing procedures when preparing equipment.
To help instructors to provide the best health and safety practice, please be observant of the rules that they communicate to you when you take part in the activity.
It is also strongly encouraged that you attend your activity prepared with your own mask, if only for the pre and post-activity phases of your experience.
If you want to know more about the health and safety measures taken for a specific activity, do not hesitate to contact us!
