Iceland has long been on the map as a pioneering country when it comes to clean energy and other Earth-friendly endeavours, but now the tiny nation’s booming tourism industry is making strides in creating cleaner, greener operations. Gray Line Iceland, one of the country’s oldest and largest tour operators, has long had a robust environmental policy in place and held gold certification from Vakinn, the official quality and environmental certifying body for Icelandic tourism. The company now actively encourages its customers to do their part in reducing environmental impact. Through their popular campaign Iceland Academy, it equips visitors with the necessary tools to travel responsibly and invites them to commit to making travel in Iceland greener with the Icelandic Pledge. Another Icelandic tour operator, Icelandic Mountain Guides has assembled a dedicated Environmental Team to organize their efforts. All of Icelandic Mountain Guide tours are now entirely carbon neutral.
