Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
In Alaska water is conserved as much as possible. Many locals have to cart their own water from filling stations miles away from their home. For this reason, we provide BPA free refillable water bottles for guests to use. We visit a local filling station to fill up, and always have filtered water available for refills. We also encourage guests to conserve water in their bathrooms and to reuse towels as much as possible to cut back on washing machine loads.

We work with suppliers who are local families, avid outdoorsmen and cultural guardians. Our tour guides include an environmental engineer, a local photographer and an author who writes about the Aurora.

We stay in family owned lodges that conserve energy, recycle and reduce waste, and we partner with a family owned organic farm for educational visits about sustainable homestead living. We also only work with dogsledding outfits that treat their dogs like family and do their best to maintain a small carbon footprint.

We tour the cultural center with a member of the native community who teaches us about the history and traditional culture of the local tribes. Our money from this goes to support the native community and local programming. We also get a tour on geothermal energy at a local hot springs resort to learn about this alternative power source and how it fuels their facilities.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

We visit small locally owned restaurants that use farm to table practices whenever possible. We partner with independent local guides and family owned lodges that conserve water and electricity, encourage sustainable practices and respect and teach about the local environment and wildlife. There are lots of chances for meaningful cultural exchange through extended small group sessions with local environmentalists, families and culture bearers.

There are limited tourism jobs that pay fairly in Alaska, so we provide our local partners with competitive pay and scheduled hours that are reliable and livable. We support families, small businesses, community centers, independent guides and local artists.

We provide opportunities to buy handmade local crafts. We support the local native community through our visits to local museums and cultural centers. We offer many chances for tourists to get to know locals in a personal and educational way. We always create sustainable partnerships with our local vendors and cultural experts.
