Each year, the Alumni Relations Office offers opportunities for alumni and the Concordia family to take part in travel experiences led by our in-house experts.

From safaris on the Serengeti to wine tastings in the French countryside to seeing the sights from the seat of your bicycle, there's an excursion for every interest.

COVID-19 Updates

Our tour operators are actively monitoring COVID protocols and pertinent travel information required for our planned destinations. There are a few requirements needed at this time and they may change often as monitoring continues. The good news is many countries are OPEN and we have the freedom to travel. We can't wait to see you on tour!

Proof of Vaccination: We require proof of vaccinations on all our trips.

To submit your proof of vaccine for the Explore Scotland, Norway, and The Spirituality of Wine Tour in France and Germany trips, visit the Ed-Venture's website.

To submit your proof of vaccine for the Cycling Trip to Spain, mail or email your documentation to Herman Hindriks. Contact Herman at herman@hindrikstours.com or send by mail to:

Hindriks Bicycle Tours
P.O. Box 301495
Austin, TX 78703

To submit your proof of vaccine for the Lutherland and Oberammergau Trip to Germany, send your documentation to Karen Carlson via the Alumni Relations Office at alumni@cord.edu or mail a copy to:

Concordia College
Alumni Relations
Attn: Karen Carlson
901 8th St S
Moorhead, MN 56562

Bring your original vaccination card with you on the trip. The card must display your name, type of vaccine, and the date(s) of the vaccination.

Re-Entry into the United States

You must produce a negative test taken 72 hours prior to returning to the U.S. Your guides will assist you in this arrangement. The average cost of a test is about 60 Euros ($67.72), but the price could be as high as $88.86 Euros ($100).

Testing Positive While Abroad

Despite all our precautions, the unexpected can happen. If you test positive while abroad, a two-week quarantine period is required. Concordia added a pandemic quarantine trip delay of up to $5,000 on our insurance policy. All illness, whether COVID or other, is the same so Concordia's trip cancellation insurance covers you if you cannot leave the United States.


We highly recommend that you purchase cancellation insurance. If you plan on the Lutherland and Oberammergau Trip to Germany, our travel agent, Karen Morlock at Travel Travel, has secured group cancellation insurance that covers up to $5,000. You must let Karen Carlson know before March if you'd like to purchase that insurance.

If you want to add insurance to any Ed-Ventures tour, that may be done by contacting them directly at 507.289.3332, 800.658.7128, or tours@ed-ventures.com.

Regarding the Music Companion Tours: Grand Tours and KI Concerts provide additional cancellation insurance when you register on their websites.
