Christmas in Lapland vacation

Carbon reduction

Your vacation will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this vacation and how to reduce them.

Environment

Lapland is characterized by its unspoiled nature, forests, vast swamps, and many lakes. It is in our interest and in the interest of the whole humankind that Lapland's nature is protected and preserved for future generations. Join us in our goal to take care of nature and wildlife. We follow strict leave no trace policy and we encourage you to do the same. Let's leave nothing that doesn't belong in nature behind us. Our guides will collect any trash from you and feel free to give them anything you need to throw away. They will make sure it is disposed or recycled properly.

In order to limit waste production, we use recyclable or reusable dishware during our tours. Thankfully, tap water in Finland is of very good quality, therefore we use tap water. Our guides bring this water in reusable thermal bottles for our customers. This tour is operated in winter and the temperature is usually below zero. The guides will bring enough water for everybody. If you prefer your own bottle, we recommend you to bring a reusable thermal bottle which you can fill in our office.

During the tour, you will taste local food such as grilled salmon or reindeer sausage. We usually shop in a market across the street, so we do not produce any food shopping-related emissions.

Husky and reindeer rides produce only limited emissions. However, during our snowshoeing tour, we will use only our own power. Besides reindeer, which are semi-domesticated, we can see other Arctic animals such as foxes, bunnies or owls. Our guides will instruct you on how to behave in nature. The general rules are that we do not damage fauna nor flora. It is forbidden to pluck or tear plants. It is also forbidden to disturb the animals, for example by making noise or leaving the official paths. Photographs of animals can be taken, but only without flash.

We cooperate with 3 different husky farms, so we ensure that the dogs have their rest breaks during the working days as well a longer break during the season. It is common that a farm does not operate 2-3 weeks even during the season. In our husky farms, the dogs have appropriate accommodation in kennels. In any case, the capacity is limited and we do not run the husky tours in unsuitable weather conditions nor add another starting times.

Community

We are a family-owned tour operator, specializing in Lapland. Our permanent employees, contribute fully to the local economies.

We closely cooperate with local providers of activities (above all local reindeer and husky farms), accommodation, equipment, and souvenirs. For example, this package includes a stay in the Arctic Snow Hotel which has Finnish ownership and it is a product of a dream of its owners to provide a unique accommodation.

We cooperate with locally owned Husky farm companies, where mushers take care of the well-being of dogs daily.

In our small souvenir store, we sell souvenirs made in Finland and Lapland. All our postcards are made by a local company in Rovaniemi.

We recommend and encourage our customers to buy local souvenirs, visit local museums and eat local food in local restaurants and thus support local artisanal and local economy.
