THE PRINCIPLES OF SUSTAINABLE TOURISM WE HAVE INTRODUCED

  1. We actively communicate the actions of sustainable tourism that have already been done for tourists and other stakeholders.
  2. We promote the emergence of streamlined public transport travel chains. We encourage customers to walk in Tahko and take advantage of the ski bus and the existing route network.
  3. We provide instructions and guides for our guests to sort their rubbish, and we also recycle, sort and reduce the amount of waste we produce ourselves. We ensure that there are a sufficient number of eco-points in the area.
  4. We implement energy and water consumption saving measures and encourage customers to act accordingly.
  5. We improve accessibility, taking into account different target groups.
  6. We employ locals and increase the number of year-round jobs through cooperation between companies.
  7. We work closely with locals to keep them informed, and create together e.g. implementing joint events, co-operating with village associations, youth and sports clubs, and developing routes that benefit both locals and visitors.
  8. We know the local goods and service producers in the area and prioritise working with them whenever possible. We also encourage tourists to buy products from local producers.
  9. We respect the local culture (traditions, history and stories) and make the most of it as part of our service offering.
  10. We have invested in safety issues and will continue to ensure safe operations.
  11. Year after year, we continue to expand our operations to be year-round. We have developed new events and activity products for all seasons, such as our snow-free route network.
