AECO: site-specific guidelines

AECO (Arctic expedition cruise operators) has published site-specific guidelines. These are intended to support visitors at a number of mostly frequently visited site to treat the natural and historical environment carefully. AECO member companies, which run most tourist ships that travel Spitsbergen on a regular basis, have commited themselves to the AECO guidelines. All other ships, including private boats, are invited to follow them.

The guidelines can be downloaded from AECO.

As expected, experienced expedition leaders won’t find a lot of new information in the guidelines. Tourleaders with lesser experience and private visitors will find them interesting and helpful in order to avoid or minimize any impact.
