1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Everything was fabulous. The Husky sled, ice fishing in the wilderness, learning to cross-country ski. Just being outside in -27, watching the Aurora.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Prepared to be cold, but also there is no guarantee that you will see the Northern Lights. Most nights were cloudy.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


A number of local people were employed by the hotel, their knowledge of the area was great. They also used local Husky and reindeer farms, and a lady from
the Sami community came to give a talk about life in that part of the world.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Wonderful, we didn't want to leave. Everyone who worked there was wonderful and the food was delicious.

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 and people

The common objective of North East Finland, including the Kuusamo and Ruka municipalities, is to develop from nationally well-known tourist resorts into an internationally attractive outdoor tourist region. Tourism is the most vital industry in the area and gives work to about 1000 people generating an annual total tourist income of over 104 million.

Tourism has a positive impact both socially and economically on people living in these remote areas. Local authorities, tourism organizations and tourism providers all work together in various fields, continuously developing programmes which will ensure that tourism in the region is managed sensibly and impacts positively on local communities and the environment.

The philosophy in the region is to ensure that tourism providers use, to the greatest extent possible, local providers, be it for hotels, activities or employment and visitors are positively encouraged to try the locally produced food and drink. Where activities such as snowmobiling may have a minor impact on the environment, such pastimes are carefully managed and are part of everyday life in these parts.

Trails are clearly defined and managed with tourists only allowed to drive snowmobiles under the close supervision of fully qualified instructors. We adopt the same philosophy in this region, using locally or Finnish owned hotels and activity partners based in Ruka or Kuusamo hence ensuring that the local community benefits.
