1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
Oh that is a difficult one. I guess it was the Reindeer selection ring, where the herders catch their reindeer for market. The melee was amazing and no one was hurt, but a fantastic experience. Then there is the photographing of a moose that was 5 meters away. Being able to enter the Sami Parliament.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
Take good thermal underwear, whatever quality your clothing it will not be warm enough.
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
I do believe in responsible tourism and the few gifts I did buy were made by the Sami people and I knew from my guide, where the money went.
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
I am going to need to find a word other than awesome as I used it so many times. This was the first holiday (other than as a child) where the trip was not arranged by me, I knew I was going to Lapland and had a guide, so everything else was a suprise. I must say that Riitta outdid herself. Absolutely everything was thought of and worked really well. My guide was brilliant and went the extra mile. What started as a photo trip, became the holiday of a lifetime and Lapland has a place in my heart forever.
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetThis tour is provided by Skafur-Tour, which is certified by Biosphere and Sustainable Travel Finland. This roundtrip takes place partly ecologically by train.
However, part of the trip takes place in wilderness areas where you can only get by car. If possible, we shall use shared transfers.
Saimaa ringed seals among the most endangered seals in the world, having a total population of only about 400 individuals. The service provider is a local nature photographer, who knows where to find the seals without disturbing their life.
PeopleLocal, professional photographers are working as guides giving you the best possible expertise both in photography and local life. In Savonlinna, you will have time to visit a medieval castle and learn about regional history and participate in a food workshop preparing local salty and sweet pastries called "lφrtsy" for yourselves as lunch.
On the way from Savonlinna to Kuhmo, you will stop at Koli, also known as the national landscape of Finland. Every Finn has a photo of this location in their home albums. After the wildlife night, you will spend a night in a Karelian guesthouse, have a real Finnish sauna and enjoy a Karelian dinner.
