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
Sailing in such delicate and pristine waters as those found in the Arctic and the vessel carrying out this expedition has been designed with a number of features to ensure it leaves as little impact as possible on the environment.

Firstly, it has one of the lowest polluting marine engines in the world, reducing emissions by 80% compared to traditional, tier 1 engines. Secondly, rather than a traditional anchor, which can negatively impact the sea floor, the ship has a virtual anchoring system using a combination of GPS, steering, propellers and thrusters to keep the boat in the same place.

Visitors must never disturb the Arctic wildlife. You cannot touch, feed or do anything to alter the behaviour of animals. Keep noise to a minimum and avoid flash photography. If you keep still and quiet, animals may approach you, however you must never interfere with them. Avoid damaging the unique plant-life. Youíll come across unique moss, lichen and herbs which can take decades to grow, so donít damage or step on them.
