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.
PlanetWe encourage our clients to be responsible tourists and take the ‘Icelandic pledge’ promoted by Inspired by Iceland: 1. I pledge to be a responsible tourist; 2. When I explore new places, I will leave them as I found them; 3. I will take photos to die for, without dying for them; 4. I will follow the road into the unknown, nut never venture off road; 5. I will only park where I am supposed to; 6. When I sleep out under the stars, I’ll stay within a campsite; 7. When nature calls, I won’t answer the call on nature; 8. I will be prepared for all weathers, all possibilities and all adventures.
All hotels/guesthouses seek to recycle any waste products – plastics, metals, paper and water.
Due to the climate water is plentiful in Iceland, with tap-water not needing to be treated. However waste water is recycled for agriculture. All energy used is renewable – principally geothermally heated water and wind and water-generated electricity. All hot water is drawn from geothermally heated reserves for both bathrooms as well as any hot tubs. Farms use the geothermal heat for greenhouses to grow vegetables rather than gas/electricity.
