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

Our Magic of Iceland has a heavy focus on regional & local cuisine and responsible, sustainable agriculture. We work with our local bed and breakfast partners to ensure fresh, locally sourced meals and we visit locally owned restaurants that prioritize regional cuisine such as seafood and garden vegetables with as much attention to sustainable practices as possible. One of our stops includes a visit to an organic tomato farm where clients learn about environmentally sound agricultural practices including organic and water conservation.

Any time we buy snacks for the road, we look for fresh and local bites; in Iceland this might be a seasonal fruit, baked goods from the local baker, or an artisan cheese with homemade bread.

We visit a number of natural sites, national parks and nature preserves, and hot springs. We educate visitors on proper waste “leave no trace” hiking and treatment of the environment. We also visit off-the-beaten path sites that receive fewer visitors than many of Iceland’s most-visited sites.

On all of our trips, we focus on reduction of plastic and make sure that water jugs are available for refilling personal reusable water bottles. In the event of waste, recycle and composting, we direct client to the appropriate bins and disposal method.

People

Our Magic of Iceland itinerary prioritizes locally owned suppliers including our boutique hotels, local guides, transportation providers, and restaurants. Our accommodations are small, generally with around ten rooms, and pride themselves in showcasing their local community including the neighborhood we stay in and the fresh, local food that they serve.

Our local tour guides are residents of the respective city and know its achievements & challenges, history and culture and provide in-depth perspective and context as we learn about the unique place we're visiting. We believe that a sound understanding of the local culture and community is essential to a transformative travel experience, and there is no better way to get that than from hearing through the stories of a local.

We also engage in a community partner activity to learn more about Iceland. We'll have a several hour excursion walking with time to engage, ask questions, and see first-hand the impact that they've had. Three percent of trip sales are donated to the NGO partner.
