Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Northern Lights vacation, Finnish Lapland

Environment

All the activities on this trip have been chosen bearing the environment in mind. We have included in this program; snowshoeing, a husky safari and snowmobiling with ice-fishing . Snowmobiling we have used in this case, as otherwise it is impossible to get quickly and safe out on the lake in extreme conditions to try ice-fishing. Skiing, reindeer herding and Sami culture can be offered as an alternative to snowmobiling in other cases.
Food served in your hotel comes from the neighbourhood. You will get a lot of local pure fish and reindeer as well as local berries.

We hope our guests will get to see with their own eyes how beautiful the Arctic and its nature is, in turn gaining an understanding of the reasons behind why protecting this pristine environment is so important. We want our guests to learn to value silence. Many of us do not even understand how total silence feels as in cities it is never really silent, and therefore to appreciate the wilderness and help to protect it like we do. Local food is served in the hotel, allowing you to experience the great food which has been sources nearby.

Community

Your hotel is privately owned and run by a local family. After a total renovation an old school was turned into a nice hotel which has brought a lot of work to the local service providers: reindeer farm, husky farm, snow mobile guides, fishermen, skiing instructors, hotel employees to name a few.

Guests come here to enjoy silence and admire the night light show. No negative side-effects are caused to the local community, which is located in the wilderness with very few opportunities to make a living. We respect the local culture and try to include a short introduction to it in every tour if the timetable allows. Local food is served. In this area of Lapland berries, potatoes, reindeer meat and fish are typical ingredients. On the ice-fishing tour the guests will see, how it is possible to get fresh fish in wintertime, when the lakes are frozen.

We bring guests in small groups to hotels we have hand-picked, offer first-class service and pay attention to the environmental questions. If needed, we arrange accommodation and activities also on the way in Helsinki or other parts of Finland, helping other local economies.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


All arrangements went very well. The programs arranged were excellent. My wife and I enjoyed the husky rides and snow mobile safari. Had 2 night of fantastic aurora experience.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Come during the end of winter and beginning of spring. Even during this period aurora watching in the open is extremely cold. Need to be proper attired.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes, learned a lot about the Sami culture.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Excellent.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Watching the glorious Northern Lights in an igloo room in Nellim in the northern part of Lapland; spending the night in a cabin in the wilderness for photographers near Kuhmo in the east, close to the Russian border; spending 2 days in a non-touristic huskies farm;

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Go to the Lapland end of February to mid-march, it's the best time. Don't worry if you do not speak a word of Finnish, everyone speaks English.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Not really, but it did not damage it. I wish there was more obvious recycling, though.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Exquisite, magical, enriching and extremely well organized by our agent Ritta. Although it was hard at the beginning to make her understand our travel needs and demand, she did understand them and completely satisfied them. She could not have done much better: it was seamless.

Read the operator's response here:

There is a very high national standard of recycling in Finland. Maybe we should make it more visible. Your wish will be communicated to the local service providers, which in this case were many.

It's hard to say as every aspect of the vacation was fantastic. If I have to say one thing it would be the activities, exciting, brilliantly organised and great fun!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Take warm socks. We were advised to take good socks and it was good advice! So thank you Riitta x

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


A lot of the staff and activity leaders were local so I guess it is good for local tourism? It was clear that all the staff took care of the environment.

Best vacation ever!

Leave plenty of time between arrival at Rovaniemi and your flight, as there is only 2 desks, and 1 security lane, and lots of Japanese with huge suitcases.

Supported local companies
