Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
This roundtrip in Finland and Sweden takes place by train, the most ecological way of transportation. In addition to trains, we use ferries twice. As the Baltic Sea is very sensitive due to the low amount of salt, the ferry companies have paid a lot of attention to the usage of gasoline, handling of wastewater, recycling and emissions and raised money for sea science. No ballast or wastewater is going to the sea and 95% of mixed waste on board is used for energy production. We have made sure that the hotels we are using are recycling and paying attention to the way they produce energy. For example, the vacation resort is using geothermal heating and the archipelago hotel is producing solar energy for its needs. In Finland and Sweden both the households and companies are recycling their waste (plastic, cardboard, glass and metal separately) to minimize the amount of energy waste.

We promise to bring visitors to this beautiful southern lake district of Finland and offer genuine Finnish experiences throughout the way: swimming in natural water, sauna, fishing, hiking. We are using local guides in towns telling you about local life and picking up the best sights for you. We also use local drivers and privately owned restaurants. We always include some taste samples if possible. Only local family hotels are used with an outstanding location and service. We are using local ingredients and offering a pure taste of Finland and a tasting of Sweden.
