Nordic Adventure

To take local action against climate change The Travel Book has decided to become an eco-friendly travel blog. Our sustainable journey begins with our Nordic Adventure in March 2019. On this upcoming adventure we are travelling from Denmark to its neighbor countries Sweden and Norway, to inspire our followers to travel eco-friendly to closeby and local destinations in the North.


To limit our CO2 emission we have taken following actions:
• We are travelling to closeby and local destinations
• We are only collaborating with partners who have a sustainable product, value chain or CSR activity.
• Our aircraft transportation is exchanged with a hybrid car.
• Feather down jackets are traded with vegan dried flower down jackets with recycled outer layer fabric.
• Personal products, like beauty care and exercise equipment, are of recycled material and natural ingredients.
• Our food will be vegan and consist of organic, seasonal and local ingredients


We are excited to use our blog as a media of change to inspire others to travel more sustainably. You can follow our eco-friendly journey continuously here on this blog and on our social media InstagramFacebook and Youtube.
