Environment

On this trip we promote the importance of environmental sustainability firstly through our use of Hotel Arctic as the base for this trip. This hotel was awarded a Green Key award in 2000 which recognised their methods of operation and technology as being both sustainable and responsible. The hotel employs many methods of environmental sustainability such as focusing on local produce in its restaurant and employing sensors and thermostats throughout to ensure that water, heating and lighting are used sparingly.

From 2002, the hotel as also 100% carbon neutral with all electricity and hot water based on hydropower. More recently, with their quirky ‘igloo’ accommodation, they have looked to converting all to use exclusively solar energy for all their heating and electricity.

This trip also encourages guests in conserving local wildlife, an example of which is in the included husky safari which follows the century old trails of polar explorers. The dogs used on this safaris are predominantly Greenlandic husky, a breed whose ancestors can be traced back to the early Inuit settlers. Guests are encouraged to learn more about the dogs and witness them in their natural environment.

Community

With regard to the community, Hotel Artic is a hugely important local supplier and is renowned for its local staff training programmes which encourages residents to become knowledgeable staff for the hotel. This in turn encourages people to remain living on the island and thus continue to support the local economy and community. Here staff also enjoy excellent working conditions and a fair wage.

We encourage or guests to travel with respect and enjoy interactions with the local community. During their free time we encourage guests to visit the town of Ilulissat and visit the shops and attractions that support local residents and get to know the people of Greenland along with its traditions, cultures and customs.

In addition, during the trip you will visit the UNESCO protected Ice Fjord, one of the islands key attractions and source of income to the region. Money spent on tours here help to encourage valuable protection of the fjord which not only brings money to the region, but is of great important to the scientific community as a whole.
