Read the operator's response here:
In such a remote and somewhat untouched world without any native or local populations the efforts to reduce environmental impacts or support conservation might not be immediately obvious. However, even just by booking this trip a proportion of the booking is a ‘CO2 and environmental investment’, which goes towards the support of number of projects. Recent projects funded on Svalbard including a herb garden at Isfjord Radio Adventure Hotel, improved awareness of the Kapp Linne Nature Reserve as well as a litter removal project that involved 23 volunteers and across approximately 4.5 km of beaches they picked up around 1,100 kg of litter.
You can trust Responsible Travel reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
