Lapland Vuollerim Welcomes You

Any organisation that offers guests three courses for dinner served at three different local homes deserves a place on the innovative hit list. Since 2008, this community organisation has devised 50 genuine Lappish life experiences, where guests interact with local people. Becoming a company in 2010, it reinvests a hundred per cent into the local economy. With exemplary stakeholder cooperation, they create social capital with products such as the Cloudberry Festival and The Festival of a 1000 Lanterns, river swimming in the midnight sun or ‘skijoring’ behind a horse. All innovative. All inspired by villagers. Villagers who “want to be change makers – to make common good instead of just selfish good”. And the results are most definitely good.
