1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Finding the pug marks of a really large bear in the forest in the Fulufjellet National Park. Seeing wild elk. Learning about the wildlife from the ants to the wolverines.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Dane is a fantastic host, committed environmentalist, excellent tracker, immensely knowledgeable and totally committed to providing a great trip. We didnt need torches as we went in the last week in June when it is light 24/7, but a plane-style eyepatch would make sleeping easier.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


We, together with Dane, were careful to ensure that the environmental impact was absolutely minimal. He also gives a percentage of his profits to a conservation charity.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Absolutely first class. Dane took us and we climbed the local mountain. We camped in total isolation, and didnt see another human being. We used water from the crystal stream heated over a wood fire. We trekked and trailed the wildlife. Dane was able to tell to us about the animal and wildlife behaviour, about Scandinavian folklore and astrology too. Could not recommend more highly.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

Fulufjellet National park which is connected to an adjacent National park in Sweden. The park is found in the county of Hedmark which has the largest moose/elk population in Norway and the second largest bear population in Norway. The National Park also contains wolves, lynx and wolverines. As for bird life you can find golden eagles, capercaillie, other grouse species such as black and willow and varies passerine species such as pipits and bramblings. Wood ants are very noticeable as they form mounds out of wood and other material they are also one of the largest species of ants in Europe.

All rubbish from the vacation will be taken to a local recycling center after clients have been dropped of at the airport. The Norwegians recycle most of their rubbish by reusing it or turning it into energy such as to create warm water they also export their rubbish to Sweden to be recycled in a similar way. Scandinavian countries have a much healthier approach to dealing with their rubbish compared to Great Britain

People

Some of your money will be going to a local horse riding company so your money will be directly helping tourism in the local area.
10% of my annual net profit goes to NOAH an animal right charity which helps change people's view of animal rights in Norway. They have a large voice in Norway they do rallies for changes in the laws such as for banning fur and using animals in circuses they also work with restaurants to do a vegetable day which has become popular in some Norwegian towns. NOAH does play a role in the way peoples view Norway as they help change the laws on animal rights, People will have a greater appreciation for Norway and this will bring more tourists to this amazing country . ''The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated''-Ghandi

As the National Park is also used by local people we will be quiet so not to disturb the wildlife or to ruin local peoples experience of enjoying Fulufjellet National Park. We will also move locations several times on the vacation so not to cause damage to the land we will be camping on. We will follow the right to roam laws to have good relationship with the local community
