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 short winter break in Finland takes place by train, the most ecological way of transportation.

The first hotel is located within walking distance from the railway station and the Moomin museum so no transfers are needed in Tampere.

Transfer to the husky picnic takes place by taxi but in case we have several families, they will share a taxi. The husky park treats their huskies well, they are family members and only take a few drives a week. Our guests will meet the huskies and can play with them.

The vacation resort is located in the middle of most beautiful lake nature and takes care of their environment. Skating, snowshoeing and ice-fishing are not hurting the nature. Big mother fish is never caught in this way. We have made sure that the hotels we are using are recycling and paying attention to the way they produce energy. For example, a vacation resort is using geothermal heating. In Finland, all the households and companies are recycling their waste (plastic, cardboard, glass and metal separately) to minimize the amount of energy waste.

The Impacts of this Trip

Our agency is located in Tervakoski, next to the town of Hämeenlinna. This is the area we know the best and shall personally welcome our guests. We promise to bring visitors to this beautiful southern lake district of Finland and offer genuine Finnish experiences throughout the way: skating, cross-country skiing or ice-fishing on frozen lake ice and Finnish sauna.

The Moomins are created by Tove Jansson and have belonged to the most beloved children's books already in many generations of Finns. Grandmother and the grandchildren know the same stories, only the communication tool has changed from comics books to animatics. Both the hotels used in this product are owned by private Finnish families and they both have an outstanding location, the other one in the heart of Tampere only a few footsteps from both the Moomin museum and the railway station and the other one in the middle of the lake nature. Each room has a lake view.
