Enjoy and take care of the Arctic
The Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators (AECO) would like visitors to experience Svalbard on nature’s own terms. We have developed a set of guidelines which aim at safeguarding the environment and the cultural remains as well as allowing for the possibility great nature experiences in the Arctic.
Our ”Visitor’s Guidelines” are generally relevant to travelling in this region while our ”Site Specific Guidelines” give information and advice on selected sites. AECO’s members and their guests are obliged to follow these guidelines, but we would like to invite all other visitors to do the same.
Learn about the sites and follow these guidelines and you will enjoy and take care of the Arctic wilderness.
