We take responsibility
It is fundamental for us here at Hotel Arctic to have commitment and to create the kind of results that also benefit society and the nature that surrounds us. Only with dedicated employees, a dynamic town and a healthy environment is it possible for us to offer our guests a sublime experience.
Year after year, we have reduced Hotel Arctic's environmental impact by educating our employees and using new technology. From 2013 the hotel is100 per cent CO2 neutral and in 2014 we installed solar panels that produce appoximately 20 percent of our electricity.
