Why choose local companies?

Travel Value:

  • Local experts know the area and will help you avoid tourist traps
  • By cutting expensive middlemen, you get more bang for bucks!
  • Explore hidden gems only locals know of
  • A local company can help you better if problems should occur
  • There´s no rush to get everything fitted in, you can create your own itinerary
  • Small groups equals more opportunities and flexibility
  • Local guides know the culture and customs of the area
  • The locals always know the best places to eat!

Doing good:

  • When choosing local providers, you benefit the local economy
  • Nanook cooperates exclusively with responsible providers 
  • Small companies struggle to be visible among the big, international tour operators
  • International operators often exploit locals, and bring most of the money you pay, to their head quarters 
  • Big groups and mass tourism do more harm than good and takes the charm away from the experience
