Sustainability is at the heart of the company’s mission at Destination Kilpisjärvi
In our line of work, nature stands as our most crucial partner, and we treat it with care and respect. We maintain litter-free hiking practices and appropriate waste management procedures, and promote recycling as an integral component of our daily operations.
Our commitment extends to a partnership with Metsähallitus, the Finnish state-owned enterprise overseeing various natural destinations, including the Käsivarsi Wilderness Area. This collaboration requires us to adhere to responsible practices, including Principles of Sustainable Tourism and Outdoor Etiquette.
In recognition of our commitment to sustainable tourism, Destination Kilpisjärvi was honored with the Good Travel Seal in October 2023.
