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 start your adventure in Nuuk, which has been certified by EarthCheck as the first capital city in the world to become a sustainable tourism destination. To achieve certification, Nuuk has met EarthCheck’s rigorous environmental standards across twelve key performance areas spanning greenhouse gas emissions; energy efficiency; air quality; ecosystem conservation; transport; waste management; and cultural and social management.

Your luxury tented accommodation is all about getting back to nature and enjoying the solitude of the wilderness. The tipi style tents are simple, yet warm, structures and use minimal resources for construction. Each tipi is equipped with its own bathroom, hot showers and an eco-toilet. They operate a 'leave no trace policy' with no permanent structures on site and a strong focus on renewable energy. There are low carbon activities on site including kayaking, hiking, arctic swimming, paddle-boarding, or fishing trips.

Food is an important element of your stay, and the on-site award-winning chef invites guests to get involved in the dining experience, which can include foraging for herbs amongst the camp. Ingredients are all freshly sourced nearby, and include various fish, mussels, arctic mushrooms, as well as herbs like angelica, arctic thyme, Labrador tea and various berries.

People

Greenland is steadily rising in popularity, but it is keen to ensure that growth is slow and there is a strong desire to avoid over-tourism. One of the key focus's is to ensure that jobs are prioritised to local residents, and with over 90% of the population of the island being indigenous Inuit, it's vital that local cultures are protected and preserved. Tourism, if done correctly, will protect and celebrate the local culture while also providing the vital source of revenue that they need.

Your accommodation is proud to be the only company offering a camp product entirely based on local people residing in the country. They have indepth knowledge about the country, the region, the nature and the people, and your experience will reflect this.

We have built into your experience a visit to the settlement of Kapisillit. With 68 inhabitants, one shop, a school and a church the settlement is a typical example of a Greenlandic village. You will have opportunity to explore this small village, visiting the locals and learn more about their way of life.
