Cruise Iceland recently joined the Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators and we are now a proud Affiliate member of AECO.
AECO – Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators – is an international association for expedition cruise operators operating in the Arctic and others with interests in this industry.
The association was founded in 2003 and has since become an important organization representing the concerns and views of arctic expedition cruise operators. AECO is dedicated to managing responsible, environmentally friendly and safe tourism in the Arctic and strive to set the highest possible operating standards.
Cruise Iceland and AECO are currently working on community guidelines for tourism in the North Atlantic, along with Visit Greenland, Northern Norway Tourist Board and Visit Svalbard. The project is sponsored by NORA.
„We are very happy with the membership and we look forward to working with them in the future projects“ says Eva Michelsen, Managing Director of Cruise Iceland.
