To provide opportunities to learn first-hand about examples where tourism supports protected areas (LT&C Examples), ÖTE – LT&C continues offering special study tours to explore them on-site.
To study the LT&C Example “Svalbard”, our founding member and Partner, Oceanwide Expeditions, for 2024, makes the following offer to our members:
July 2-10, 2024, you are invited to join the tour “OTL05-24 – East Spitsbergen and Bear Island” for a 20% discounted price.
It is a rare opportunity to explore both Spitsbergen’s dramatic east coast and the majestic bird colonies of Bear Island. You will not only enter the realm of polar bears and ice, but the tour will also be fascinating for bird watchers looking out for high Arctic species during the best time of the year.
Long hikes and shore cleaning activities are also included. More information on this tour can be found on the Oceanwide Expeditions website. There is also the possibility of combining this tour with “OTL04-24” to North Spitsbergen (June 25- July 2) on the same ship, M/V Ortelius, and getting an extra discount.
If you are interested (also if you are looking for any other tour of Oceanwide Expeditions, where you could get an LT&C-member discount), ensure you are an active member of ÖTE-LT&C and write to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Your interest will then be forwarded to Oceanwide Expeditions, and you will receive a non-binding offer from them.
