Adventure travel in Greenland will always face the challenges of a difficult climate and long distances. For example, it is difficult to put in place a transport infrastructure that is both 100% sustainable and profitable.
However, for Travellodge, there are many ways in which one can look after the environment and the natural world.
“First and foremost, we always ensure that everything we take on a tour comes back home. In other words, we do not leave any rubbish in the great outdoors. We also designate specific toilet stops on our trips, so that we do not leave this type of detritus everywhere we go. However, we do not build toilets in all camps because we feel that this would spoil a pristine landscape.”
“We are also determined to ensure that all the partners and agents we work with have an eco-friendly profile. Some of them are WWF members and advertise this on their websites. This tells us that we are dealing with an operator who thinks sustainably.”
