If you want to show your support and contribute to the community of the Geopark in strengthening its role as a sustainable tourism destination, you can make an agreement with the Geopark following some guidelines that our partners commit to through a simple written contract. At the moment our agreements are all in Icelandic, but feel free to be in touch and we´ll help you go through it.
The contract is an agreement between the company and the Geopark, where both parties are commited to work together on a common goal of promoting and protecting the Geopark. With a written contract, companies recieve permission to use Katla Geopark logo´s in marketing materials and get special opportunities in promotion. Adhering to the contract involves partnering with other companies in order to achieve sustainable growth, with strong emphasis on nature protection and sustainable use of natural resources, promoting natural and cultural heritage while also working with other partners and producers in area, offering local produce, education, etc. More can be found on the agreements here (in Icelandic!). Those who adhere to these guidelines and make a contract with the Geopark receive special promotion from the Geopark on various occasion!
