Environmental work and carbon footprint

Nallikari’s operations are run with care and consideration for the environment every day of the year. Our goal is a fully carbon neutral Holiday Village by 2030.

Sustainable and responsible development are the primary practices for Nallikari in all avenues. We wish to use sustainable development practises to guarantee the preservation of our gorgeous nature and the ability to enjoy it for future generations, too.

Nallikari Holiday Village has the ambitious goal of being carbon neutral by 2030.

Environmental work

Nallikari Holiday Village was granted the Green Key certification for the first time in 2018 as a sign of its devotion to increasing the environmental awareness of its staff and customers, improving their use of water, and minimising the environmental load created by their accommodations. As an extension to their Green Key certified environmental work, Nallikari Holiday Village was also the first business in the Oulu region to be granted the Sustainable Travel Finland badge created by VisitFinland in 2021. The badge was granted to acknowledge our work for meeting the national standards set for sustainable travel industry services in Finland.

We support all environmentally friendly modes of transport, exercise, travel and events that take place in our natural surroundings. We rent out equipment for self-directed outdoor pursuits, and are happy to instruct our customers in ways to get to know the beautiful outdoors routes in Hietasaari. As a location with the Welcome Cyclist sign, we have made a commitment to the availability, ease, and quality of the services that cycling travellers need. We would like to remind all visitors to Hietasaari to bear the Finnish Right to Roam and the outdoors etiquette in mind while out and about. We also expect our corporate partners to use environmentally friendly approaches.
