Who is behind Arctic Travel Tips?

Hi! My name is Ed Singleton, I am a Brit spending my time between Arctic Finland and Germany having left the UK in 2012.

I founded this website in 2023 as I looked for a way to express my passion for the Arctic.

With this outlet, I hope that more people will be inspired to embrace the cold and travel north, or simply it will help those who have already booked to bolster their itineraries with incredible tours or extra things to do and see.

Why The Arctic?

From a young age, I dreamt about visiting the Arctic after reading the book Neither Here Nor There by Bill Bryson, where he talked about seeing the Northern Lights in Hammerfest, Norway.

From that point onwards I dreamed of seeing them myself and when I saw them for the first time in the Lofoten Islands I became fully addicted to the Arctic.

I have traveled fairly extensively throughout the world, but find myself drawn to the remoteness of the Arctic.

There is something about those cold crisp days, the colors of autumn, and the unique experiences that both thrill and leave you in awe.

It truly is one of the most unique regions in the world.

What is our Mission at Arctic Travel Tips?

We truly believe that the Arctic is one of the most magical places on the planet, with seasonal extremes and a place where humans live on the edge.

That being said, the Arctic is in desperate need of protection against climate change.

That’s why the goal of this website is to promote sustainable travel to the north so that people can visit and experience the raw beauty of the Arctic for generations to come.

As part of this goal, we will look to recommend tours and experiences that limit their impact on the environment and encourage sustainable tourism.

We will never endorse people taking a day trip to the Arctic during the winter months, as many travel companies throughout Europe offer.

We will also look to actively find ways to support businesses owned by those indigenous to the Arctic and experiences that promote learning about the history and culture of the people who have lived in the Arctic for thousands of years.

We will also look to promote the Arctic as not only a winter destination but a year-round destination due to the vast amount on offer.

This is also a learning process for us and we can’t promise we will get everything right first round. If you find that a tour or an experience is not sustainably done please reach out to us so we can look into it.
