  How to be a sustainable traveller?



Forget what you think you know about the Arctic or maybe at least half of it. Yes, it can be cold, dark and full of snow and ice, but that is by far not the whole truth.

The Arctic is one of the last great wilderness areas of the world, where people have managed to survive and live with nature for thousands of years, and where nature explodes with life under the midnight sun during the short summer. The Arctic is not for everybody to discover, but those who try it will find themselves intrigued by the cultural and natural richness of the region: the vastness of its landscapes, the abundance of its wildlife and the uniqueness of its local and indigenous peoples.

We hope this website will give you a flavour of what this unique region has to offer to travellers and how to discover its treasures with respect for local people and nature.
