Responsible Travel

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.

Planet

First of all, although this destination offers beautiful Arctic landscape, it is not in Lapland but closer to Oulu so it can be reached by train from Helsinki. There are fewer tourists than in Lapland. The first part of this tour takes place by sledges pulled by huskies with accommodation at a new-built ecological wooden guesthouse of the husky farm and another night at a wilderness cabin with no running water. No garbage is left behind in the wilderness. The second part takes place in a new, modern and ecological ski hotel with geothermal heating and special attention paid on environmental issues. The skiing center is located next to Syöte National Park, so there are a lot of nature trails around the area. Nature is one of the core values of all the local companies and the whole ski area is committed to sustainable tourism and it is participating the Sustainable Travel Finland programme by Visit Finland.

People

By choosing this tour you are bringing employment to the wilderness area living mostly out of its forests. You will first meet a pioneer of all husky farms, run by a father and his daughter. At the wilderness cabin you will experience, how you can live without running water or central heating. During the husky safari, you will have lunch by an open fire and learn survival skills. after taking care of the dogs you will cook together, try the traditional Finnish sauna and even a dip in snow or ice-cold water. The ski hotel is also owned by local Finnish investors. There is a family-owned restaurant in the hotel. Breakfast and dinner are included in the package. Local skiing instructors and guides are taking care of the activities. We use a local driver for the transfers. What the most important, Iso-Syöte is a vacation destination used by Finns themselves.
