Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Northern Lights adventure vacation, Autumn special

Environment

All the three hotels recycle glass, PET bottles, cans and paper. As the distances are long in Lapland it is not sensible to recycle bio waste. The towels are changed daily only on client request. One of the hotels uses geo-thermal heating.
Food served in the hotel is as local as possible. Local fish, berries and mushrooms are used. Reindeer herding is the local source of livelihood. Reindeers live free in tundra and eat lichen from nature. Reindeer meat is as pure and ecological as meat can be.

Our partners taking guests to the wilderness pay special attention to protecting nature. No garbage is left behind.
We want our guests to learn to value silence. Therefore we have included yoga sessions in three very different locations, on an island, in sauna by river and in Sámi gallery. We'll also hike up on an Arctic hill. Many of us do not even understand how total silence feels as in cities it is never really silent.

The route has been planned so that the group is able to use public buses for moving from one place to another so even a small group can move ecologically.

Community

All the three hotels in Lapland are privately owned and run by local families and use as many local services as possible in serving their guests.
Our guests will get an introduction to the local Sámi culture by a guided visit at the Sámi museum Siida. They will be told about the life of these indigenous people,their life in the Arctic circumstances and their holy places. We'll make a boat tour to the holy island of Ukko on lake Inari.
We'll visit a local sámi woman , who is a teacher, an artista and a hostess of a reindeer farm. In our workshop we'll learn more Sámi traditions and either try ther way of singing or prepare triangles of life by using local materials.
In Tankavaara we'll stay overnight in traditional gold digger style cabins.
Guests come here to enjoy silence and admire the night light show. No negative side-effects are caused to the local community as our guests will enjoy the beauty of the nature.
