Environmental policy

The Glacier Journey family is committed to sharing its love and respect for Icelandic nature with each of our guests to providing a once in a lifetime experience. Our wilderness remains largely intact and undisturbed which makes it unique and very precious. We lead by example, continuing to set new standards in Iceland’s young adventure tourism industry. We hope to promote attitudes and practices which will keep our wilderness areas intact for future generations to enjoy. We have worked hard to achieve certification from Vakinn, the official quality and environmental evaluation system within Icelandic tourism and we continue to maintain those achievements. Glacier Journey is proud to be an officially recognized sustainable tour operator.

Sustainability declaration and environmental responsibilities

Although Glacier Journey has achieved official recognition as a sustainable tour company we still strive to find improvements. We believe that if a company, such as ours, wishes to thrive in the future there is only one way to achieve this: to work in harmony with nature, our community and the people living here. We seek to purchase local goods where possible, to reduce long-distance procurement and to abolish the use of goods made by companies who fail to recognize environmental guidelines or their worker´s rights. Glacier Journey undertakes voluntary work within our local community. The Glacier Journey family makes donations to organizations and support charities in various ways. This declaration is reviewed annually.
