Our participation in the Sustainable Travel Finland program


Santa Claus Reindeer Oy, which includes Santa Claus Reindeer, Mrs. Santa Claus Christmas Cottage and Lapland Restaurant Kotahovi, aims to improve sustainability by participating in a recently launched program called Sustainable Travel Finland! This program supports Finnish travel companies to become more sustainable and ecological, thus advancing the development of sustainable tourism in Finland. The steps of the program help the companies to improve their functions gradually.

Since we don’t only want to be ecological, but to also preserve and revive the Lappish cultural heritage, especially Lappish food culture, committing to the values and goals of the program was easy. Therefore our company was glad to start the journey to sustainability with this program in the spring 2020.

Our first sustainability goals are to increase the use of local and seasonal ingredients in our restaurant, to reduce the food waste and to take different diets and food allergies better into account. We aim to become more sustainable in our operations, such as cooking, recycling, water consumption, heating and electricity usage.

It’s essential to us that every visitor feels welcome despite their age, dietary requirements or possible limitations. We have taken care that our restaurant is barrier free.
