Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
After your arrival in Helsinki, you will discover its city center on foot. In order to limit the impact on the environment, the transfer between Helsinki and Rovaniemi is exclusively by train.

As soon as you will arrive to Lapland, you will be amazed by its unspoiled nature, forests, vast swamps, and many lakes. And we want it to stay like that. It is in our interest and in the interest of the whole humankind that Lapland's nature is protected and preserved for future generations. Join us in our goal to take care of nature and wildlife. We follow strict leave no trace policy and we encourage you to do the same. Let's leave nothing that doesn't belong in nature behind us. Our guides will collect any trash from you and feel free to give them anything you need to throw away. They will make sure it is disposed or recycled properly.

Husky and reindeers produce a minimal impact on the environment. We will try to limit our impact as well especially during our tours in nature. For that reason, please, always follow the instructions of our guides.

We cooperate with local reindeer and husky farms, which ensure the wellbeing of their animals, above all that they have the necessary health care and diet.

In order to limit waste production, we use recyclable or reusable dishware during our tours. Thankfully, tap water in Finland is of very good quality, therefore we use tap water. Our guides bring this water in reusable thermal bottles for our customers. This tour is operated in winter and the temperature is usually below zero. The guides will bring enough water for everybody. If you prefer your own bottle, we recommend you to bring a reusable thermal bottle which you can fill in our office.

During the tour, you will taste local food such as grilled salmon or reindeer sausage. We usually shop in a market across the street, so we do not produce any food shopping-related emissions.

The Impacts of this Trip

We are a family-owned tour operator, specializing in Lapland.

We closely cooperate with local providers of activities (above all local reindeer and husky farms), accommodation, equipment, and souvenirs. We always prioritize accommodation with local ownership.

The Sámi people are the only indigenous people of Europe and they live in Lapland. We provide our clients with information about Sámi culture and history, but you will also learn a lot during your visit to the Arktikum museum By your visit you support the museum operation, but we also recommend you shopping in the museum's shop in order to support local Lappish handicraft.

You can also shop in our small souvenir store, where we sell souvenirs made in Finland and Lapland. All our postcards are made by a local company in Rovaniemi.

Santa Claus Village has Finnish ownership and it is an important employer in the region. By visiting it, eating in the local restaurant and using services you support locals living in Lapland.
