Autumn northern lights short break

Carbon reduction

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

Environment

All the three hotels recycle glass, PET bottles, cans and paper. As the distances are long in Lapland, it is not sensible to recycle bio waste. The towels are changed daily only on client request. One of the hotels uses geo-thermal heating.

Food served in the hotel is as local as possible. Local fish, berries and mushrooms are used. Reindeer herding is the local source of livelihood. Reindeers live free in tundra and eat lichen from nature. Reindeer meat is as pure and ecological as meat can be.

Our guides taking guests to the wilderness or on lake Inari pay special attention to protecting nature. No garbage is left behind. A guided hiking tour to see the nature preparing for winter is included. Northern lights are magical but natural phenomenon and by choosing a wilderness hotel, the guests only have to walk out to see them. No hunting tours are necessary.

The route has been planned so that the guests are able to take the longest transfer by a public bus.

Community

All our hotels in Lapland, privately owned and run by local families, They employ a lot of local people and invest in their local society.

The emphasis of the tour is the indigenous Sámi culture.

Our guests will first get an introduction to the local Sámi culture by visiting Kaija Paltto in her studio in Lemmenjoki. She is a well-known felt artisan, a Sámi woman and a hostess of a reindeer farm. She will tell our guests about the traditional Sámi costumes. The exhibition of the Sámi museum Siida will tell you about the life of the indigenous people of the area, their life in the Arctic circumstances and their holy places. We'll make a boat tour to the holy island of Ukko on lake Inari.

On your last day you will meet a local Sámi woman, who is a teacher, an artist and a hostess of a reindeer farm. You will visit her private Sámi Gallery, where you will have a workshop, whose topic can be either traditional Sámi singing or arts. in the arts workshop you would produce the triangle of your own life.
