Sustainable and environmentally friendly tourism

Skip to the content



Travel is an incredible gift. It has the ability to open our eyes, our hearts, and our minds to the unique cultures and spellbinding beauty of the natural world. But with this gift comes a responsibility - to protect the world as we know it. 

Here is a wee bit about the efforts we are going to ensure that the environment and communities we visit remain for generations to come.

Supporting Local Festivals

HAGGiS Adventures are committed to sustainable tourism and preserving the unique spirit of Scotland.  We have been visiting Shetland for over ten years with the Up Helly Aa tour.  As a donor of the Festival, we are able to give back to the local community which will, in turn, ensure more travelers can enjoy this fiery spectacle.
