Responsible tourism: Spitsbergen polar bear watching cruise


We always encourages clients to respect and appreciate the environment they are in; on this trip there are presentations by the experts who lead this expedition who have over 30 years experience. We reflect this in the running of the office in the UK where everything that can be recycled is and careful consideration is given to the environment.

We always ensure that clients are aware that polar bears are dangerous and wild animals. Clients are given rules to abide to ensure they do not come into danger and they do not make polar bears associate humans with food. A donation from each trip sold goes to helping preserve Polar Bears and the environment in which they live.

A direct contribution is made from each safari sold to the conservation and preservation of the bears in the destination of choice. This contribution is made for the conservation of the bears, local communities and projects, and local conservation agencies.

Wherever possible we use environmentally friendly local accommodation. It is not always possible to find eco-friendly accommodation in some remote destinations; if this is the case then we make every effort to alert the management of the accommodation in question to ways of improving their service with the environment in mind.

Our UK operations reflect our standards abroad in that we aim to minimise our impact on the environment as much in the UK as we would do in any of our destination countries. We attempt to do this through recycling of any office waste including, paper, plastic, cans, glass, refuse, in partnership with the Borough of Brighton & Hove.

Responsible tourism is the way forward for travel in the 21st Century; as we destroy more and more of our natural environment we slowly begin to realise how much we need it. When visiting destinations we bear this in mind and remember how privileged we are to be able to see the wildlife and nature that you are visiting.


The purpose of our safaris is to contribute to local populations, communities and projects within the destination. We give our travelers advice on how they might be able to interact with the local population, flora and fauna in order to minimise any negative impact. We encourage the use of local guides in every destination and with every local agent. Even on our specialist led safaris we try to ensure that a local guide is also used, as we do not believe in taking jobs from local populations in order to provide for western needs.

Where possible we will always use local suppliers in preference to others whether this is in the purchase of provisions, accommodation, transport or equipment. We believe the best way to learn about and enjoy the experience of being on safari with us is to make the effort to mingle with the local people, taste new foods and try new experiences.
