Description of Family self-drive tour in Finland
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetThe biggest environmental issue in the archipelago is the protection of the Baltic Sea, were the sea water rotates very slowly and therefore it is very sensitive to pollution. Every summer you can see algi on the sea in the end of the summer. Ferries are big polluters but they are all working according to ISO 14001 certificate and working on constantly reducing the emissions and improving waste handling onboard. This is a self-drive tour so we also need to pay attention to the rental car used. It has to be as ecological as possible. If the group is less than 4 people we recommend to consider using public transfer instead of a car and promise to offer a combination of public transfer as an alternative. In Finland all the inhabitants as well as tourists must sort their waste and we'll advise our guests, how to do it on their tour.
PeopleOn this tour you will stay in locally owned hotels and small guesthouses and get to know the Mumins, characters created by a Finnish writer Tove Jansson for her children's books. You will learn about history of the country visiting the old capitol Turku, the self-governed island Åland and Suomenlinna fortress. On the Åland island local people get their income from agriculture and shipping. The main product is potato. We have included a stop at the factory shop of a local potato chip producer Taffel. Later you will visit an activity park, where children can learn, how the production chain of agricultural products work by transporting potatoes to a potato chip factory. On Åland you will stay in a small guesthouse run by a local family. In Helsinki we have included also a visit to the amusement park Linnanmäki, which is run by foundation called Lasten Päivän Säätiö founded in 1957 for child caring. In 2016 they donated 4,3million euros for child care so our guest families will not only have a fun day at the amusement park but also support Finnish child care organisations.
