At Lights of Vikings, we are dedicated to providing unforgettable Northern Lights tours in Swedish Lapland while maintaining a strong commitment to environmental responsibility and sustainability. We understand that our operations impact the delicate Arctic environment and recognize our responsibility to minimize that impact. This Sustainability Policy outlines our commitment to sustainable practices and responsible tourism.

Our Environmental Responsibility. We will continually assess and minimize our environmental footprint by:

  • Ensuring our transportation vehicles meet or exceed local emission standards.
  • Reducing energy consumption wherever possible.
  • Minimizing waste production and promoting recycling among employees and guests.
  • Conserving water resources and reducing water wastage.
  • Using eco-labeled products and sourcing local, sustainable materials whenever possible.
  • Avoiding the use of single-use plastic products wherever possible.
  • Providing reusable alternatives for guests and staff.
  • Equipping our devices with rechargeable batteries instead of single-use ones to reduce waste.

  • Collaborating with local suppliers and businesses to promote economic growth.
  • Supporting cultural and heritage preservation initiatives.

Promotion of Sustainable Tourism Practices. We actively promote sustainable tourism by:

  • Promoting responsible tourism guidelines to minimize our impact on local flora and fauna.

Carbon Offset and Collaboration with Viskogen. We are proud to collaborate with Viskogen, a leading tree-planting organization, to compensate for our carbon footprint by:

  • Calculating our carbon emissions and investing in tree-planting projects that help sequester carbon and restore ecosystems.
  • Regularly monitoring and reporting on our carbon offset efforts to ensure transparency and accountability.

Continuous Improvement. We are committed to regular evaluation and improvement of our sustainability efforts by:

  • Adhering to all local, national, and international environmental laws and regulations.
  • Setting clear and measurable sustainability goals.
  • Conducting regular audits to assess our progress.
