Looking for fun and responsible activities in Helsinki? You're in the right place.

The below activities are run by companies that have the Sustainable Travel Finland (STF) label. 

A travel business needs to go through a 7-step STF programme to qualify for the label. The programme is free of charge, but it requires serious dedication and a lot of work in the long-term. Companies must commit to the core principles of Sustainable Travel Finland, taking transparent actions to mitigate the harmful impact they could have on the planet, people and communities. 

By choosing a STF labelled experience, you are directly supporting local sustainable tourism and helping to ensure a more profoundly positive local impact.
