Responsible Travel

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.

Planet

Our trips place great emphasis on respecting the natural environment. From the beauty of the Arctic landscape to the shimmering Northern Lights in the sky, visitors travelling to these remote regions get a completely immersive experience of the stunning natural wonders on offer – giving them an authentic appreciation for the environment here. Each activity is crafted to help guests gain an understanding of the cultural and environmental offerings of the region.

A visit to the Sámi Siida Museum is a fascinating insight into the indigenous people who have lived in the region for thousands of years. The entrance fee goes to supporting the identity and cultural self-esteem of the Sámi and help preserve the wonderful surrounding environment they call home.

To cut down on transport emissions, we have also included a guided nature walk for guests to explore the stunning autumnal landscape on foot.

During the walk, the local guide will also point out the seasonal food that you may find in the hotel restaurant. Your dining experiences will often include many local delicacies, so guests can experience traditional dishes whilst reducing their food miles.

Of course, the Aurora features heavily on the itinerary but it is not just simply a case of standing under the night sky. During a Northern Lights presentation with an expert local guide, the guests will learn all about the science behind the phenomenon as well as the local legends which have been passed down from generation to generation. The hunts themselves primarily take place around Lake Inari in specialised Aurora Camps which are stunning spots dotted along the lakeshore.

People

The Wilderness Hotel Inari is locally owned and sits just 5 minutes from the village of Inari – the centre of Sámi culture in Finland. In order to support the local community as much as possible, we use local suppliers on all of our trips.

During each activity, guests are accompanied by local guides who have unparalleled knowledge of the area. We have conducted thorough research to show that autumn is a brilliant time to visit Finland in order to boost tourism during this off-peak season.

We have scientific evidence to back up the fantastic Aurora potential during this time of year and the included activities, such as the guided nature walk, celebrates the autumnal landscape before the deep snow arrives.

We use remote locations to maximise our guest’s chances of seeing the Northern Lights, but we aim to make a positive contribution to these rural communities by providing sustainable tourism. In return, our guests gain a wonderfully authentic insight into this incredible part of the world.
