Responsible tourism: Lapland holiday, husky safari & log cottage

Environment

Husky safari is an ecological way to move in the wilderness without motor. By travelling this way our guests will get deep into wilderness they could not reach by car and they can really connect with nature and experience how it feels to be dependent on a team of huskies.

Season and weather make each safari different. A local professional guide will tell the participants about the eight seasons, the Arctic nature and its fauna on the way. Far out the wilderness it might also be possible to see some of the Arctic animals, for example reindeers and pfarmigans. He/she will also make sure the guests arrive safely back from the safari. During the safari the dogs are taken well care for by the participants themselves.

After the husky tour the guests will stay in a traditional log cabin in a ski village, where everything is in a walking distance and no extra transportation is needed. We recommend our customers to try cross country skiing and snowshoeing in order to get in the Urho Kekkonen National Park, which is located very close to the ski village.

Community

We are keen to support the local community and ensure that they feel the benefits of tourism. The Husky farm for example is a local company in northernmost Lapland in Ivalo. Our guests will get closer to the nature and will get to discover how the original population has been able to survive in extreme conditions above the Arctic circle.

The log cabin is owned by a private Finnish company and all the services such as cleaning and maintenance are provided by local companies. There are grocery stores, restaurants and activity providers easily accessible. We also recommend that our customers take part in the trips from the weekly program which are run by local operators.

The original Sámi culture is fascinating and we recommend that our guests make a tour to Inari, where Sajos, the Sámi parliament and Siida, the Sámi museum are located. There are only about 70 000 Sámi people left living in the northern parts of Finland, Sweden, Norway and Russia. As other indigenous people, the Sámi have strived to preserve and maintain their culture. The Sámi museum offers a great way to understand more about the culture and nature of Lapland.

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


It was all brilliant, but I would say the most memorable bit was the husky safari, it was so peaceful once the dogs got started. The rest of the trip was amazing too from the hotel Vuokkati, to cross country skiing, ice skating, visiting the spa at Katinkulta and Angry Birds park and going out on cross country ski trails and tobagonning from the hotel. Brilliant!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Book through Responsible travel, every detail was planned

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


We used the ski bus and went out from the hotel

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


Superb, the service from the operator was top notch
