VALUES

Responsible tourism

Hyödynnämme luonnonantimet, vastuullisuus ja kestävä kehitys on tärkeää majatalo Puukarin Pysäkille.

Responsible and sustainable tourism is a natural part of our daily operations. For us, many things are innate, intergenerational, and value-based. Respect for nature, traditions, and organic lifestyle is particularly important to us. Sustainability is also a guarantee of quality. Finns are surrounded by nature and have an appreciation for forests and lakes. Forests cover 72 percent of the land and there are 187,888 official lakes in Finland. Nature is a significant source of wellbeing and the heart of Finnish identity. 

 

We at Puukarin Pysäkki want to ensure that future generations have the opportunity to enjoy the magic of healthy, thriving nature. The North Karelian Tourism Association has awarded our hostess Anni Korhonen this year’s responsible tourism operator award. Our guesthouse is also involved in Visit Finland’s Sustainable Travel Finland pilot, which seeks frameworks and criteria for tourism operators in Finland so that responsible and sustainable tourism is realized in our industry.

“We spent a night here in June. We were very tired after a long day of trekking in Koli National Park (beautiful). Anni was very kind. She told us about her organic farm and showed us every room of the wooden house: so nice and clean! Sauna experience was very relaxing and regenerating. Summer Finnish nights are very fascinating. Atmosphere was so romantic. Breakfast was lovely: beautiful location (we can see the lake through the window) and biological food. It was a very very nice experience. And thank you Anni!”

Review, TripAdvisor

“The owner is a lovely lady who cooked us amazing traditional Karelian food - everything was locally sourced and home made, from fish from the river, berries from the forest etc. The bread was freshly baked in their wood burning oven and she even made homemade beer and strawberry drink for the kids. We stayed in a very spacious log cabin next to the house complete with elk antlers. The location was very convenient - just off the road going north to Hossa National Park. Views from the house of countryside and lake. Would highly recommend.”
