Tourism is a growing activity in the Polar Regions. But what impact do we have traveling these remote and fragile regions? What challenges are connected to tourism here? There are serious concerns that tourism is promoting environmental degradation in the Polar Regions by putting extra pressures on land, wildlife, water, and other basic necessities, and on transportation facilities. But there are possibilities and options to reduce our footprint, like the German non-for-profit organization Atmosfair, that contributes to CO₂ mitigation by promoting, developing and financing renewable energies in over 15 countries worldwide.
