Finland’s untouched and pristine nature is at the core of Finnish life. Living sustainably and in harmony with the environment is deep-rooted here and is an essential element of responsible travel. This includes not only a respect for nature and wildlife, but also people and their age-old customs. We want to see this development process through ecological, social, economic and cultural dimensions.
Sustainable tourism is committed to having a positive impact on nature, society and the economy, leaving a low ecological footprint and honouring local cultures. FoRestful is committed to the principles of sustainable nature tourism in all our activities and has a cooperation agreement with The Natural Heritage Services of Metsähallitus (governmental agency managing national parks and conservation areas).
We do our best to keep nature clean by choosing environmentally-friendly options in modes of travel, we recycle, reuse and reduce our overall consumption and waste. FoRestful's office runs on renewable energy (geothermal heating, solar panels and wind power). We prefer choosing locally produced food and products and are acting respectful of local communities and traditions.
FoRestful is a long time supporter of WWF, Finnish Association for Nature Conservation and Greenpeace.
