Accommodation and meals: Our small group size allows us to stay in small family-run guesthouses in Hvolsvöllur and Höfn that cannot benefit from coach tours and other mass tourism due to their limited size.
We are a big supporter of the protection of endangered species around the world. Although a global ban on commercial whaling came into effect in 1986, approximately 1,000 whales are still being killed every year, with Iceland being one country to defy the ban. We encourage our travelers to avoid purchasing whale-based dishes or souvenirs to discourage fueling this trade.
Community: Our local Icelandic Tour Leader will share insights into local customs and traditions and if you’re lucky, they may treat you to a rendition of popular folk songs.
Group size: This small group tour has a maximum of 12 participants, meaning that we have a low impact on the communities we visit and are able to ensure that we do not disrupt or lead to the displacement of local people as far as possible.
Activity: Tourism is booming in Iceland and this tour actively encourages travelers to chat with local guesthouse owners and other travelers and to purchase local Icelandic produce, gifts and crafts.
UK office: It all starts at home so we have first worked at reducing our carbon footprint in our UK offices. Through energy conservation measures and recycling policies, we are proud to be actively reducing the waste produced and our impact on the environment. We support various projects all over the world to try and give something back to the places we visit.
