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.
