Responsible tourism: Norway walking holiday, Peer Gynt

Environment

We are a small Norwegian company that offer trips for an active holiday in various places within Norway.

By walking, you will be a part of the nature in a way, and you don’t destroy anything as long as you never throw away rubbish in the outdoors, and you stick to marked routes. Always leave the environment as you would like to find it yourself! The food that you eat in the hotels is normally local produce/local cuisine and some is organic.

The law on the management of nature's diversity (from 1st of July 2009) (Naturmangfoldloven) has been very important for the nature of Norway and also the international perspective to protect the nature and the environment. Therefore, Norway has a demanding and ambitious goal of halting the loss of biodiversity. This is a new law that will be helpful and taking care of the wildlife and the national parks as well:

"Nature is a national value that must be protected" and "intervention in nature should only be carried out from a long-term and comprehensive resource optimisation, which takes into account the nature of the future is maintained as the basis for human business, health and well-being." T

he Act provides further rules on the protection of special natural areas and natural resources including the following below:
- Nature must not be damaged!
- Always bring back your litter, never throw rubbish outdoors
- restricted access to protected areas
- Show respect for people and animals
- Open fire is forbidden between the 15th of April until the 15th of September
- It’s not permitted to smoke inside our office, and all public places, bars & restaurants, and all workplaces
- You can not drink alcohol and drive afterwards

We use green transport on all our trips and guests stay at traditional Guesthouses and hotels.

Community

This trip is with a local guide. You meet local staff, the food is local and we’ll use local bus companies where transport is necessary. As a result of this, the money generated will stay within the local area, and provide local employment. You will get to know local specialities of food. In some of the places the local owner is working at the hotel.

It is also possible to go on this tour like a self-guided trip. For the self-guided trips you receive a guidebook and good map and the trails are well marked, so it is easy to find local food suppliers and restaurants/markets along the way.

The theatre excursion provides an insight into local culture whilst enjoying a night out with local people.
