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.
PlanetAll of the transportation during this tour in Helsinki is done by electrical train, or by bicycle to minimize the carbon emissions when moving around.
- This tour introduces our guests to the "greener" side of Helsinki as well as its surroundings. It also creates a bigger demand for these areas to be developed by the city even more. Also moving by bicycle increases the amount of people using bicycle roads which helps the city to make more environmental decisions in their future planning.
- Every activity on this tour is "human powered" which means that there is no other source of power used than the human body, for example paddling and cycling. The chosen activity suppliers have a strict ecological approach when moving in nature.
- All of the meals included in the tour are vegan, vegetarian and/or prepared from local ingredients. This reduces the carbon emissions generated in the production and in the transport of the food. It also leads to more people using vegetarian meals which makes it more easily available in the future.
- Every accommodation in the tour is certified or it has taken concrete steps towards a greater sustainability on a daily basis.
- All of the suppliers in this tour share the same sustainable and environmental values as us. Together we are committed to reduce the impact to the environment in many ways, for example in this tour by using low carbon or renewable energy, recycling and reducing waste (bio, plastic, metal, cardboard, etc.), saving natural resources like reducing energy consumption and using renewed building materials.
- A carbon footprint for this tour has been calculated. More information is available by the tour provider.
