The Polar Regions

Sustainable Tourism

At Island Holidays we believe implicitly that tourism should contribute to the communities we visit rather than detract from them. To this end we choose our partners and accommodation with great care. We are proud to be able to contribute a little towards local conservation projects and to individuals who need support. We are very aware of our responsibility in promoting destinations which are environmentally sensitive and working with people who do not abuse these fragile eco-systems but instead support the local people who rely on a degree of tourism.

Carbon Offset

You can offset the carbon emissions created by your holiday by contributing to one of many such schemes. We recommend Carbon Clear.
