OUR COMMITMENT TO FINNISH NATURE
On my trip I promise to appreciate the wilderness that can be found throughout Finland. Being surrounded by nature will allow me to relax, disconnect from technology which will therefore allow me to connect with those around me. I promise to follow the Leave No Trace principles and treat this place with the utmost respect. Your forest and lakes will remain plastic-free because I will not leave behind trash. Although being able to roam through nature freely has always been a human right, I will make sure to be responsible. Delicious berries and mushrooms can be found throughout for me to enjoy; however, I will make sure to stay on the designated trails and paths so that I do not damage the growth of the forest. Long before humans traveled through these parts, the wildlife has been there. I will make sure to give the animals their space and be conscious of where I am camping. I will respect all those around me so that everyone can enjoy this beautiful place. In preserving nature, we all have a simple role to play, and with this promise I will be embracing the right path.
The “Sustainable Travel Finland” initiative focuses on the following four dimensions: economic, ecological, social and cultural. This status is only granted to those companies and destinations that have passed the program and have completed the 7 steps. This includes the commitment to tourism principles and having designed a tourism development plan with both short and long-term goals. In the last few decades, tourism in Finland has been growing rapid yet at a steady rate. That is why they are investing in sustainability. The pandemic has given the country time to prepare and to welcome international tourists to a stronger, more resilient and sustainable Finland.
