Sustainable Tourism

BusTravel Iceland is contentious of and proud to deliver sustainable and safe travel. We are committed to the idea of sustainable tourism, which means that we encourage ourselves and our guests to experience Iceland while striving to make a positive impact on the environment, society and economy. We aim to have our operations as eco-friendly as possible and with your help we can do even better!

VAKINN – Quality & Environmental Certification

BusTravel is fully qualified by VAKINN, the official quality and environmental system in Icelandic tourism. Only tourism businesses that maintain the highest standards in all aspects of business practices and meet VAKINN's comprehensive assessment criteria have earned the right to display VAKINN certification. 


KOLVIÐUR – The Icelandic Carbon Fund

BusTravel Iceland is a dedicated member of the Iceland Carbon Fund. The mission of the Kolvidur Fund is, first and foremost, to reduce the concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere by increasing the carbon sequestration of forest ecosystems, in other words, minimizing our carbon footprint. The Iceland Carbon Fund offers carbon offsets through tree planting. We encourage our guests to contribute to this good cause by adding 220 ISK to their booking (the equivalent of one tree being planted), thus making their tour carbon neutral. 100% of the donation goes into planting more trees in Iceland and fighting global warming. 


EURO 6 – European Emission Standards

By having a new fuel-efficient fleet that meets the highest emissions standards, EURO 6, BusTravel Iceland reduces the impact of exhaust emissions, from its transportation, on environmental pollution and global warming. 


The Clean and Safe Pledge

We have undertaken the pledge by the Icelandic tourism board to ensure cleanliness and safety on all our tours. This pledge was established to provide tangible evidence of the hygiene procedures already in place and to highlight Iceland as a safe travel destination. This was an easy pledge for BusTravel Iceland to take as we already adhered to high standards of cleanliness and safety.
