Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Northern Lights vacation, Lofoten Islands, Norway

Environment

The accommodation at Svinøya Rorbuer showcases excellent examples of environmental sustainability through its construction which restored and renewed old fisherman’s huts to be used as an accommodation option. In creating these, the hotel’s owners placed considerable emphasis on maintaining the authenticity of these cabins and preserving the timber and time-honoured craftsmanship of the structures and they evoke a feeling of the traditional fishing industry which has long been of the utmost importance to this region.

The Scandic hotel chain has long been a leader in environmental sustainability in the hospitality environment, indeed it was a member of the Scandic hotel chain that suggested the ‘hang up your towel if you want to use it again’ which is standard in numerous hotel chains now across the world. It now has numerous policies to help encourage environmental sustainability such as recycling, water wastage management and using renewable energy as much as possible. Scandic Hotel Svolvær has the Nordic Ecolabel showing that it promotes products and services that are the most environmentally sound.

Community

When it comes to community, the family run Svinøya Rorbuer encourages interaction with local communities and strives to highlight the importance of fisheries to the region. This is shown in its small on-site museum and also through its à la carte restaurant, which is not only housed in an old quayside warehouse but serves locally-sourced fish and produce.

There are also many community funded and run museums and art galleries which our guides promotes as places to visit. On our trip we include a visit to the World War ll museum, an ideal place to learn more about the island’s past – it is a key historical attraction that is run mainly by local volunteers.
There are plenty of other cultural attractions which you can visit during your free time. The island has a long tradition of attracting artists who come here to enjoy the unique landscape and ever changing light so there are also a range of art galleries to enjoy. We actively encourage our clients to visit these local artists and support the local community.
