Sustainability

Leave no trace behind

We at Northern Norway Travel care about developing and maintaining Tromsø both as a destination and a thriving local environment. Therefore, over the course of several years, we have worked to align with international sustainability goals and environmental labels, in particular the UN sustainability goals, the 2030 Norwegian tourism strategy – actually, we’re not waiting for the 2030 deadline, we’re almost there! If you want to see how we work for a more sustainable future for Tromsø, have a look at our initiatives and partnerships for a greener, more sustainable Tromsø!
