Why choose Nanook?

Read more about our story and philosophy

Or, Start finding adventures now
The idea for our concept developed while running our own adventure company, Norwegian Goosebumps (Norsk Gåsehud).

We realized that other passionate hard working providers had the same challenges as we did, in regards of reaching travelers using digital technology and marketing.
And, unfortunately, we saw too many examples of local companies being exploited by international tour operators.

How can we help?
By connecting travelers and adventure companies directly without the costly steps in between. To do this we use multiple channels, such as this marketplace, customized trips, and our global network. We have a team that strive to make new innovative solutions and never rest in the task of making traveling better.

Then the local adventure companies can focus on what they know and love 
– giving the customer the best possible experience.

Our philosophy
We only promote local, responsible providers, because we want the money the costumer spend on travel to benefit the local economy where they choose to go. We only pick providers that take responsibility for the environment, the community, and their workers. 

By choosing Nanook you will get local knowledge, leave less of a footprint in nature, and your trip will be safer and better!

1% goes to projects that help clean up the ocean and nature.

We believe our project can change the world, one trip at a time, start by choosing the small authentic providers!

Why is Nanook the name of our project?

Nanook - the polar bear
The Inuit believed that Nanook, the polar bear, was powerful and mighty, and they thought that he was "almost man". The polar bear has recently become a symbol for, and a victim of, climate changes and ocean pollution. Still the bear remains strong and powerful, and make an impact on anyone that encounters it. 

And, Nanook the documentary
Nanook of the North: A Story Of Life and Love In the Actual Arctic is an American silent documentary film from 1922 by Robert J. Flaherty. The first documentary in the world.
This movie is a great inspiration for us.
