Responsible tourism: Family multi activity holiday in Norway

Environment

This trip is led by a lady who lives and breathes nature and wildlife in her unspoilt corner of Norway. Gunn Anita is truly passionate about looking after the landscapes in which she lives and works. She is a local hero when it comes to sharing this with others - both visitors and neighbours alike. Gunn's work for Lierne National Park backs up her passion and dedication to the environment and local wildlife having led projects to help wildlife and to encourage others to learn more. She pioneered a program called 'Living with Predators' which helps people, especially children, to understand how to live around bears and other animals and ultimately to help protect them. She believes that nature-based tourism is not only beneficial to the environment but also to people as well who can learn at any stage of their life. All of Gunn's guided adventures ensure that wildlife continues to prosper. Gunn uses tracks that do not interfere with the animals or wildlife and instead helps people to learn about bear signs and how to live around predators.

Your host also runs a small farmstead where the cabins are located. This accommodation is certified by the national organisation for eco-tourism which covers many areas of sustainability and environmental responsibility. Waste from the accommodation is kept to a minimum and indeed there is an extensive recycling programme. In addition to this, there are various measures in place to conserve energy. Food miles are kept to a minimum, notably as Gunn grows her own vegetables and fruit and, of course, forages for wild food in the nearby forests and mountains. This not only tastes better, but ensures minimum food miles.

Community

Gunn Anita works tirelessly to promote her local area and has a strong network of local suppliers for food supplies, activities and other supplies. All of her guests are encouraged to use local suppliers and to visit handicrafts people wherever possible. She is part of a network called Wild Norway which encourages nature-based sustainable tourism, meaning that small local providers can work together to achieve fantastic quality products for their guests.

Through her work with the national park, Gunn Anita has brought about significant local change and has enabled guests of all ages to understand and learn about local issues and wildlife. The ultimate aim is to preserve the natural landscapes and to support local communities and help them to thrive.

Guests are also encouraged to arrive using public transport and indeed this programme includes train transfers to cut down on car transportation. Gunn Anita provides guests with information about transportation and local buses to help them come without the car.
