Responsible tourism: Snowshoeing holiday in Norway

Environment

This Snow Shoe and Dog Sled trip is away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Traveling via human and animal power, and staying in small, isolated huts along the way. This trip offers an intimate interaction with Norwegian nature while minimizing your CO2 impact. Responsible travel includes considering the large scale impact from CO2 emissions can have on the world.

Choosing an adventure that is human - and dog - powered instead of petrol powered minimizes the impact by taking away additional pollution in how we travel locally. By only using our own power to move through the Norwegian mountains, we reduce the contribution to pollutants in the air while still gaining an impactful and personal experience with Norwegian nature.

We are partnered with trail care organizations in Norway to ensure we are giving back to the land that we use while on our own two feet. As tourism in Norway increases, it is our responsibility to make sure travelers learn about their environment, respect nature, and minimize their impact. Trail maintenance to minimize impact and recover ecological health is imperative to keeping our nature healthy and educating users on Leave No Trace philosophy.

We have founded a non-profit called the Cairn Foundation. This foundation supports locals in remote locations within Africa and Nepal. It also contributes to planting trees around the world to help offset our carbon emissions. Any guest joining our trips will have the option to donate 1 dollar a day, or simply support a company that gives back to communities locally and globally.

Community

We are committed to setting an example of sustainable and eco-friendly tourism for the Norwegian industry, and making it competitive for other companies to meet our standards. We partner with small, family owned businesses and support local food, accommodations, and travel. Norway is one of the leading countries in sustainable infrastructure, and we strive to match the progressive mentality of Norway with Norwegian holidays that reduce CO2 and focus on local partners.

On this tour, we stay at DNT mountain huts, the Norwegian Tourist Association that runs and maintains the hut systems in Norway. This organization is the foundation to allowing citizens and tourists access to the outdoors. DNT has a long history and is run mostly by volunteers.

The trail systems we will be skiing on are also maintained by DNT volunteers, as well as the signage used to mark our way. By maintaining a good relationship with DNT, we help support the organization in its goals. Including trail maintenance, access, and education. These mountain huts have a promise to serve traditional and local food, straight from farm to hut. Supporting DNT supports conservation, social responsibility for our environment, and ensures Public Rights of Access for all people.
