Northway operates actively within the framework of geotourism, which is one of the cornerstones of the business concept.

Geotourism is defined by the National Geographic Society as "Tourism that sustains or enhances the geographical character of a place - its environment, culture, aesthetics, heritage, and the well-being of its residents".

Norway is one of the first countries in the world which is committed towards operating tourism according to the principles of geotourism. In August 2005 Innovation Norway signed an agreement (The Geotourism Charter) for geotourism with the National Geographic Center for Sustainable Destinations. For more information see

The Geotourism Charter is a document with 13 items, which amongst other things deal with local economic growth, land usage and the preservation of resources.

Geotourism is a strongly growing segment of the tourist market.

In 2005 The National Geographic, in the magazine "Traveler", voted the Norwegian fjords as the world's best destination, based on the criteria according to the definition of geotourism.

The Geotourism platform is also a cornerstone in the profiling of Norway's World Heritage Sites.
