Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

We encourage guests to travel responsibly and to consider the following guidelines:

- When out in wild places, please keep erosion to a minimum, keep to footpaths or rights of way and avoid stepping on, or picking native flora.

- When near wildlife or bird colonyís we minimise human disruption of the natural environment. We take considerable care during breeding seasons so as to not disturb nesting birds and wildlife.

- Take time to carry out some research about the Faroesí rural communities

- Water sources in the Faroes are exceptionally pure and we discourage buying plastic bottled water. A metal or heavy-duty plastic bottle such as Nalgene to refill with water from a safe source is recommended to all of our guests.

- River water could also be a supply drinking water, please do not contaminate river water supplies by washing in it. Any washing products should be phosphate free

- Respect local customs religion, traditions and personal property boundaries.

- Donít take photographs of local people and places of religious significance without permission.

- Keep promises! Send copies of photos to local people if this is what you have said you will do.

- Read the labels and buy local products such as food and souvenirs so that money directly benefits the community.

- Reduce pollution and carry out all litter. Recycle wherever possible. The Faroes have one of the lowest levels of environmental pollution in the world and it is good to keep it this way.

Our small group ethos, sharing of transport and preferred mode of exploring locations is by foot thus reducing pollution, environmental noise and damage to what is often an especially delicate ecosystem.

We support the Environment Agency of the Faroes through passing on information about their policy and raising awareness of current issues and environmental sustainability.

Wherever possible we work electronically and promote considerate use of digital resources. We are primarily web based for all administrative communications with minimal use of office paper.

People

We are actively supporting tourism initiatives by taking time to visit and support the local museums, art galleries and any local initiatives that may be happening. We take boat trips with local operators to support the communities directly. We make our images freely available to organisations that are actively encouraging sustainable community initiatives.

Our locations are spread across the islands. We stay in family run initiatives, guest houses, converted fishermanís cabins etc. We are rewarded with a very personal service, quieter locations, fresher home grown produce and insight into the lives and folklore of local people. We always ensure that participants on our holidays get the opportunity to see and purchase local products.

All of our service suppliers are informed of our responsible travel policy which is clearly visible on our website.

We recommend that you visit our links page where you will find comprehensive information on travel, health, environmental concerns, preparing for your holiday, local cultures and how to support local projects.
