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

- When out in wild places we encourage you to keep erosion to a minimum, keep to footpaths and avoid stepping on or picking native flora, Greenland is especially fragile environmentally and the country is currently embarking of many projects such as tree planting to reduce erosion.

- We encourage you to use water sparingly and to avoid buying plastic bottles of water; use your own metal or heavy-duty plastic bottle such as Nalgene to refill with water from a safe source as recommended

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

- Carry out some research about Greenland and being able to speak a few words of Greenlandic is always appreciated.

- Minimize pollution, and carry out all litter. Greenland has one of the lowest levels of environmental pollution in the world and it is good to keep it this way.

Wherever possible we work electronically, we are totally web based and our paper use is minimal. We work from a home based office reducing car travel to a minimum. Our preferred mode of getting around to 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 Greenland through passing on information about its policy and encouraging people to join their volunteer scheme.

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.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

More than ever communities in Greenland are returning to their roots and rely on traditional ways of making a living. Tourism, fishing, farming and local crafts such as knitting are seen as a viable and sustainable way of helping to maintain economic stability in Greenland.

In particular communities away from the main towns are relying on visitors to boost their economy. Our aim is to support these less-visited areas and 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. These local providers appreciate our on going commitment to their livelihoods.

All of our service suppliers are informed of our responsible travel policy which is clearly visible on our website. Local food can be obtained easily in Greenland. Each day we buy local produce for our picnic lunches to be eaten on location and our accommodations pride themselves in introducing us to local Greenlandic fare for both breakfast and dinner.

We also encourage our customers to:

- Respect local customs religion and traditions.

- Not 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.
