A pledge to travel responsibly and respect Icelandic nature

Inspired by Iceland now offers tourists to take a pledge to travel responsibly when visiting the country. ‘The Icelandic Pledge’ is an online agreement where tourists can sign, and promise to respect nature while travelling in Iceland. On signing you get a certificate you can share on social media with the hashtag #IcelandicPledge.

Þórdís Kolbrún Reykfjörð Gylfadóttir Minister of Tourism, Industry and Innovation believes tourists visiting Iceland want to do so responsibly, but often don’t know what it takes. The pledge will encourage them to travel responsibly and safely, minding the delicate Icelandic nature. She believes the tourism industry must grow in accordance with both the society and nature.

Here you can sign the Icelandic Pledge.


The pledge:

I PLEDGE TO BE A RESPONSIBLE TOURIST.

WHEN I EXPLORE NEW PLACES, 
I WILL LEAVE THEM AS I FOUND THEM.

I WILL TAKE PHOTOS TO DIE FOR, 
WITHOUT DYING FOR THEM.

I WILL FOLLOW THE ROAD INTO THE UNKNOWN, 
BUT NEVER VENTURE OFF THE ROAD.

AND I WILL ONLY PARK WHERE I AM SUPPOSED TO.

WHEN I SLEEP OUT UNDER THE STARS, 
I’LL STAY WITHIN A CAMPSITE.

AND WHEN NATURE CALLS, 
I WON’T ANSWER THE CALL ON NATURE.

I WILL BE PREPARED FOR ALL WEATHERS, 
ALL POSSIBILITIES AND ALL ADVENTURES.
