Responsible Tourism

Tourism plays a fundamental role in the Icelandic economy. This raises the stakes for travel companies operating in Iceland, which need to ensure that they have a positive impact on nature, society and the economy.

At Iceland Encounter, we understand that nature conservation is in everyone's interest and that we owe it to future generations to protect the environment.

Iceland's unspoiled nature is particularly sensitive to traffic. While touring, our guides strive to minimize our ecological footprint and combat tourism's impact on climate change.

In our effort to strengthen communities in the areas where we operate, Iceland Encounter actively supports and empowers local suppliers and vendors.

We strive to offer more enjoyable experiences for visitors through meaningful connections with local people, and a greater understanding of local cultural, social and environmental issues.
