Leader interview

“We went down a valley between two mountains, so not a vast open space. But it was beautiful. And it was twilight when we went out and dark on the way out.”

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

Wildlife:
Meeting polarbears when traveling to Spitsbergen is one of the highlights. Itís not only a dangerous predator, but also vulnerable and illegal to hunt. In the area around Nordenskiold Lodge you may see the polar bear hunt for seals, even in summer time. The polar bears have adjusted the lack of sea ice, and keep in this area even when it is no ice. We follow the philosophy that we as humans are visitors to the Arctic, this is polarbear land and we adjust to them instead of the other way around. That means that we take our safety precautions, and we do not disturb the polar bear unless it is for safety reasons.

Transport:
Our boats are equipped with energy saving propels, and we use led free fuel. During the days at Nordenskiold Lodge, we do not use motorized transport at all, but use our feet on the glaier and in the area around, in adittion to kayaking. A guaranteed close to nature experience!

People

Friends and neighbours:
We use local restaurants for food catering on this trip.
We also visit Pyramiden on our way, the Russian settlement which was abandoned in the mid 90ís. Today it is open for visitors and you get a tour around the small city, visiting the cultural house, library and a few of the houses.

A fair deal:
We employ staff with the aim to avoid short-term contracts and season work. Seaons in Spitsbergen are very different with different level of activity. Over the past years we have more staff in fixed, long-term contracts, for a more sustainable company and destination. Our guides have annual training and education to ensure quality, motivation and safety for the guests. Glaciers in particular is important on this trip, the glaciers change every year and good knowledge is therefore a must. We educate our guides and hosts with this in mind. The company also have possibility for staff to apply for education support paid from the company.
