We are passionate about the polar regions and work actively with the issue of sustainability on several levels. We value care and small scale and strive to make as small impression as possible.
YOUR TRIP IS CLIMATE COMPENSATED
As an organizer of expedition cruises, we cannot escape the fact that we emit greenhouse gases on our trips. Until renewable fuels are available in our industry, we choose to climate compensate for our emissions. Our goal is also to overcompensate every year to slowly pay nature back for emissions we made back in time.
BECOME AN AMBASSADOR FOR THE POLAR REGIONS!
During a trip, we hope that our passengers gain a new understanding of our ecosystem and the various challenges faced by animal life - and recognize the issues associated with a warmer planet. Back home, we hope that our passengers will share their experiences with others. Increased awareness of the fragility of nature can hopefully lead to a stronger commitment and a lifestyle at home that contributes to the preservation of the world's environment. It is how we act in everyday life that has the greatest impact even in the polar regions - something that is easy to forget.
We are members of the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators (IAATO). We support responsible tourism with minimal impact on the landscape and wildlife. To ensure this, all IAATO members work according to established rules of conduct. We kindly ask you to respect these rules. More information will be provided on board.
ARCHAEOLOGICAL AND HISTORICAL FINDINGS
In many of the places we visit there are remains that are interesting to us as well as to researchers and historians. These places are valuable from many aspects and should be preserved as intact as possible.
Please use consideration and caution when visiting archaeological and historical sites. Also, never collect souvenirs or pick up objects at these locations as doing so can disrupt the context and lead to the loss of their scientific value. This also applies to more modern buildings and burial grounds.
