RESPONSIBLE AND SUSTAINABLE TOURISM IN MUONIOWe, including you, the locals, and those in the tourism companies, are all in this together.

WE, AS MUONIOANS, ARE COMMITTED TO SUSTAINABLE TOURISM
We preserve nature resources
- We sort and recycle waste, with the intention of producing less waste every time.
- We save energy and water: for example, we use geothermal and eco-energy, and encourage our customers and visitors to do the same.
We take advantage of public transportation
- We promote the emergence of various public transportation chains and options.
- We also encourage customers and visitors to use public transportation as well as existing networks and contacts when traveling.
We are developing year-round tourism
- We strive to employ locals and increase the amount of year-round jobs.
- Year after year, we continue to operate more, all year round. We are continuously developing more opportunities for the snowless months, as well as new events and activities for all seasons.
We include the locals
- We respect the local culture (traditions, history, and stories), and make sure to offer related services and programs as genuinely and authentically as possible.
- We work together with the locals, creating and collaborating on events, in communicating current affairs, and in making sure to include locals in the development of tourism in a way that will benefit both the locals and tourists alike.
- We know the different providers and producers of goods and services in the area, and take advantage of their offerings.
