The nature is unique to all of us now and in the future. The valuable things for Äksyt Ämmät are the diversity of nature, responsability and sustainability, also in tourism. We want to act responsible for the climate and nature, so have we done over 20 years already.
What is Äksyt Ämmät
Äksyt Ämmät Green Finn Tour Operator is an independent, fully licensed, local Finnish tour operator and activity commissioner. Our aim is to offer active holidays and holiday activities in Finland to small traveller groups, who wish to experience the most genuine activities run by the best local service providers. On our tours we will stay in small, family-run guesthouses, eat in local restaurants and use local transport and other services as much as possible. Our tours are guided and local guides are used as often as possible. The travellers are hosted as guests by us and will be able to reach their own, local contact person throughout the tour.
Our extensive knowledge and life-long experience of travelling in our home country enables us to create tours providing you with real insight into Finland. We are able to recommend you best visiting times for each destination, to offer you only services which have been audited by us and to provide full service also outside the main tourist season. In addition to the must-see-attractions you will be offered genuine experiences with the local people in the most beautiful Finnish nature.
We respect nature and emphasize services leaving the minimum ecological footprint in the nature. We respect local residents and their culture.
