Vision of Ekkerøy Holidayhouse;

We take care of you and the nature

As a certified eco-tourism firm Ekkerøy Holidayhouse wishes to give you as a guest an extraordinary experience. We give you knowledge about the culture and nature in the Varanger area, and we tell stories you probably never have heard before. Our work is based on protection of the environment and the culture. As a responsible travel business we will enrich you with experiences of nature and culture. After the cerification during the autumn of 2009, we follow these seven principles:

A Norwegian ecotourism business:

  1. is nature and culture based and has ecotourism as an underlying philosophy for all its business activities.
  2. contributes actively to nature and culture conservation, is aware of its own effect on the environment and always practices a precautionary attitude.
  3. is run as sustainably as possible, constantly balancing ecological, cultural, social and economic considerations.
  4. contributes positively in the local community, uses the local workforce, local products and services, works for increased collaboration and shows a general responsibility towards the community..
  5. contributes to preserving listed buildings and has local adaptation, local architectural style and distinctiveness as a general goal in its choice of materials and solutions.
  6. places particularly high demands on hosts and guides, and communications and interpretation is a central part of the product.
  7. offers memorable experiences and creates meeting places that give employees and guests insight into local culture, community and environment.
