Responsible tourism: Svalbard and Northern Lights vacation

Environment

Your Hotel in Longyearbyen is inspired by trapperís history in Svalbard, where materials are re-use. In the hallways and rooms youíll find driftwood, sealskin a slates. Alot of the wood is either driftwood collected in Spitsbergen, or wood collected from the Russian settlement Barentsburg. The reception area is made from a closed mill and an old herring dock from Northern Norway.
In Trapperís station you will find the same inspiration, with even a larger focus on storytelling. The station consists of a trappes hut, a secondary station and a gamme, all traditional Norwegian buildings associated with trapping. In adittion you will find a seal-rack which the trappers used to avoid the polarbear to take their seals, polarbear trap and a trap for polar foxes. None of the traps are used today, but it is important to give our visitors an authentic experience and a tour through Svalbard history.

Vaste
Environmental policy: As a guest on this trip you contribute to treeplanting in Kenya, Africa. By planting trees, you will reduce the carbon foot print of your air travel as well as your motorized transport on the archipelago. Since the project was established in 2000 we have planted 75.000 trees, with the aim to revive the Talek river ecosystem in Kenya.
In addition, our ecological destinations use as little resources as possible and use ecological products, to make your carbon footprint even smaller. The company is Eco Lighthouse certified, which means a great focus on ecological alternatives, along with an awareness of resources spent. Spitsbergen is also certified as a sustainable destination.

Community

Friends and neighbours:
We work closely with local restaurants and attractions to ensure our visitor make the most out of the stay at Spitsbergen. We introduce local food like reindeer or seal, drawing the line back to trapperís history. Since we donít have our own restaurant we depend on good collaborations for dinner servings or the lunch you enjoy while participating on a trip. We also collaborate with other tour organizers. We prioritize those who follow our philosophy; organizing trips with small groups, a storytelling perspective and a focus on quality.
If we need other accommodation options, we prefer those hotels with a high level of personal service, like our hotle in Longyearbyen.

Charity and volunteering:
Longyearbyen is a community with a high social responibility. Annualy there is a national charity project, in which Longyearbyen contribute the largest amount per inhabitant each year. As a company we contribute to this project as well, with trips, volunteering or money.
As previous mentioned, we also contribute to treeplanting in Kenya through the Co2 investment our guests pay.
