Environmental & Social Policy *del proveedor
At the start of every trip we will provide participants with information on how best to pass through with out leaving their mark, so future generations can visit these special places in their natural state. Each trip has a different approach f.ex. a cave trip and raft trip have different focus points.
When we need transport between places or transfer of luggage or supplies we offset the carbon emission through the Icelandic Carbon fund (www.kolvidur.is).
We take part in the Icelandic Nature Conservation organization (www.natturuverndarsamtok.is ) and through them take an active part in supervision over constructions in the highlands of Iceland. The organization is puplic forum that issues statements and gives their opinion on all matters concerning construction in the Icelandic nature.
We recycle as much of our waste as possible. Both at our office, at our base camps, in our restaurant and on tours we take all waste with us and dispose of it after the trip.
We only use local guides, Icelanders that are passionate about their environment and its conservation.
Every single trip we operate is genially Icelandic, packed lunches are made with Icelandic ingredients such as cabin smoked lamb from Húsavík, dried fish from Vestfirðir. If we dine in restaurants we eat f.ex. at Rauða Húsið or Hafið Bláa Icelandic seafood restaurants in the small towns of Eyrarbakki and Stokkseyri on North Atlantic coast.
All our services are performed in the countryside or highlands and we are fiercely local, using only hostels, guesthouses, huts or hotels where we have a personal relationship with its owners and staff.
On all our treks we have a maximum of 12 people with a optimal group size of 8. This makes our treks an intimate experience and enables us to be flexible with our schedules.
