Responsible tourism: Northern Lights short break in Lapland

Environment

What comes to food, we'll try to eat as much local wild food such as fish, mushrooms, herbs, game, reindeer meat and berries as much as possible during out tour. We'll drink tab water, which tastes very good in Finland. We'll drive together as a group in a minivan. A small group is collected to share transportation costs but also to minimize the environmental impact of driving by car. Our route has been planned minimizing the need for transportation. We'll have a long snowshoeing tour, which is the most ecological way to move around and when snowmobiling, we drive two sharing a snowmobile. We'll stay in wilderness hotels outside the village lights in order to observe northern lights, the most magical natural phenomenon caused by solar storms in our earth's magnetic field. We'll talk about climate change and its consequences to the life in the Arctic and the most important, get into the beautiful nature covered by white snow and learn to enjoy the silence.

Community

This tour is hosted by your local Finnish tour operator, who knows all the service providers and has selected the best activities provided by family-run companies from the Ivalo-Inari region. We'll taste local delicacies such as mushroom soup, fish and berries for example. We'll learn about the Sámi culture by visiting the Sámi parliament and Sámi museum Siida. At Design House Idoli we'll have a chance to meet the host Pekka and her wife, in terior designer Hanneli and to get an introduction to the most modern Finnish design by them. We'll be guided by professional wilderness guides and we'll meet a local professional fisherman taking us on lake Inari to tell us about winter fishing techniques and let us try ice-fishing. If we catch fish, we always release the small ones and mother fish. Throughout the tour you can ask anything you like about the Finnish society and habits. We'll talk to the service owners and get them to talk about their everyday life in the Arctic.
