Our Environmental Policy

Environmental, Safety and Professional Standards

ITM Tourist Information is an Information Centre owned and operated by Icelandic Mountain Guides, an established travel company. Their intention in operating an Information Centre is to provide a service to guests which will comply with their own environmental standards, safety practices especially on the glaciers, and professional business behaviour. By operating an Information Centre which actively promotes other operators who participate in Vakinn, they hope to further support the development of quality tourism in Iceland.

ITM Tourist Information follows Icelandic Mountain Guides’ Environmental policy; we have adopted the World Wildlife Fund conservation plan, concerning ecological tourism in the Arctic. A part of our philosophy is to support local NGOs and to take an active part in a discussion about the development of wilderness and open spaces. As a growing company, Icelandic Mountain Guides continue to lead by an example as the environmental policy is reviewed regularly to ensure that it´s implemented at all levels of our operations.
