We work hard to protect and conserve the destinations we visit around the world and the fragile Arctic ecosystem is no exception. In protecting the Arctic and instilling a sense of environmental stewardship in our clients, we employ a range of successful methods and initiatives.
We firmly believe that by offsetting the average CO2 emissions for each trip, we can help combat the effects of global climate change in the Arctic. As a result, we are the only travel company to offset the carbon emissions generated by your polar trip at our own expense and we also automatically offset the carbon emissions of flights booked through us for polar voyages. The funds generated from this initiative go directly into Rainforest Concernís new Rainforest4Climate programme, helping reforest tropical rainforest habitats in South America.
Whilst on these trips, your-on board natural history expert, through guided walks and evening talks, reveals not only the wonders of the Arctic realm and its wildlife but also some of the conservation issues which this fragile habitat and its species face.
Finally, by sailing around Greenland, we harness the power of the wind; not only allowing passengers to enjoy quiet and unobtrusive travel but reducing the use of engine power (and thus diesel usage) also. The deck of a strong and elegant sailing ship is an appropriate and inspiring way to enjoy the serenity and stunning beauty of Greenland's wilderness, by environmentally-aware means.
You can trust responsibletravel.com reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
