BUILDING POSITIVE CHANGE ONE MEMORY AT A TIME

"In the early 2000’s, I was walking in the wilderness and saw trees laying on the ground in an area that must have been hundreds of acres. Back then, logging in Lapland was common and it made me think that there must be a more environmentally friendly way to utilize the area rather than to saw it into a product. That arose an idea of tourism that would allow us to utilize the surrounding wilderness, but without ever harming it.

Today I am grateful that together with my wife, family and our team, we have built four successful tourism destinations. The people who have visited these destinations have got the chance to get to know the most valuable resource in our area, nature, and have taken the memory of its importance with them. That leads us to our goal; to build positive change in the world – one memory at a time."
