"To host guests here in the north from all over the world is truly a blessing. I grew up here, and it's been a dream since I was a teenager to show this part of the world for others. When we get guests from far away and they get meet locals here and take a part in our arctic lifestyle they help us to keep our hombeblindness away. The arctic forestland gives so much, to us and our guests. Peace, silence, space, darkness and light as well as shelter. It's also very important to develop the small scale tourism here. It's also a very delicate way of using nature without exploiting it, and when we contibute to the local economy here we keep other ways of using nature in much more exploitive way short"
