Fair Travel has reached an agreement with Tropical Consult/Germany to represent and market Discover Dominica in the Nordic region, starting on the 1st September 2016. It is with excitement that Fair Travel dive into this challenge to represent a destination, and yet another place that we hold close to our heart.
“I had the pleasure to visit Dominica in December 2014 and experienced this wonderful place. It’s obvious that sustainability is high on the agenda in the development of tourism on the island. I was really touched by the hospitality and joint “community-feeling” that surrounded the island, where I didn’t just feel like another guest, but almost like I was part of the community. I was devastated to hear about the disaster that struck the island and area with Hurricane Erica in 2015 and it feels very natural to now help reestablish Dominica on the travelers map. It is a beutiful place with so much to offer in terms of both nature and culture.” – Jeppe Klockareson, Owner & Founder at Fair Travel
Dominica (pronounced Dom-in-EEK-a, and not to be confused with the Dominican Republic) is a haven for adventure travelers seeking a unique experience that includes: hiking and adventure, cultural events/festivals, diving and water sports, whale/dolphin watching and canyoning adventures. Two thirds of the island are covered by tropical rainforest and it’ was one of the first destinations benchmarked by Green Globe for ecotourism. Dominica has promoted sustainable tourism since the beginning and the island has been awarded as one of the 10 best ethical destinations for the 2nd time by Ethical Traveler. In Kalinago Territory, the northeast of the island, live the Kalinago – the indigenous people of Dominica.
The objectives are to increase the awareness level in the Nordic market with an increase in visitor numbers. We hope to organize press trips, attend road shows and expos, and a few other interesting things. Keep an eye out for Dominica!
