We have a long history of working towards making the outdoors accessible to all. Our largest commitment has been a two year research project developing suitable kit and clothing technology for a successful inclusive crossing of the Greenland Icecap (which we completed in 2006 in a team which included a paralympian Gold medalist (to be), Karen Darke.
We have a lot of experience working with physical challenges and some experience working with those with mental challenges and are very open to developing safari products and winter vacations that are accessible to all. Some local accommodation providers also have accessibile facilities and we are in the process of board-walking many of our paths for year-round access. Nevertheless, we can always transfer people with physical limitations to the farm by quad in summer and by kicksled or snowmobile in winter.
We have welcomed mixed ability groups from both Finland and abroad to the farm on a number of occassions in the past decade and even run overnight wilderness safaris with dogs for groups that needed a 1:2 and even 1:1 support ratio. Just let us know what your special needs are, ahead of time, and we will see what we can do to accommodate them and to help you gain access to the special arctic adventures possible in our world.
We welcome all our guests with respect for equality and with tolerance regardless of nationality and culture, religion, sexual orientation, physical ability and sensory impairment. We strive to produce experiences for all senses and all people. Our meals are always relatively simple but they can be arranged with vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and other food allergies and preferences taken into account. When we know in advance about disabilities and special needs, we can plan to support the program appropriately and are more than happy to do so. Everyone deserves a chance to know the freely-given cuddles of loving huskies and to feel the freedom of the arctic wilderness against their cheeks.
