Welcome to an eco-labeled facility!
STF Abisko Turiststation is a facility located in the middle of a national park – which makes it even more important for us to work actively for sustainability. Abisko National Park is famous for being rich in fauna species. Here you can find lapland rosebay, polarblära (Silene Involucrata) and a variety of orchids such as the elusive forest lady and blunt-leaved orchid (Platanthera Obtusata). Here you will also find an abundant wildlife – if you are lucky you can hear the rare species of willow warbler, nordsångare (Phylloscopus Borealis), singing on the hillside or seeing forest species such as moose, capercaillie, mountain lemming or rock ptarmigan among the mountain birches. To ensure that these experiences will remain requires a commitment to reduce our own environmental impact in a long-term perspective.
So what do we do?
- STF Abisko Turiststation was the first tourism facility in Sweden to be certified with the EU EcoLabel (2009), something we are extremely proud of. The certification shows that we actively work to protect the environment on a variety of levels, for example; using green electricity, we recycle our waste, we have routines that shield the environment, we try to reduce our electricity and water consumption and much more.
- At the facility, we have a KRAV-certified restaurant, step 2. This means that we use KRAV-labeled and organic ingredients in our restaurant. Also, our shop offers a large amount of KRAV-labeled and organic food. Most brands we sell are Swedish brands with a sustainable thinking and most of our souvenirs are locally produced.
- Our guided tours are ecotourism certified by Nature’s best. This means that we will not leave any traces behind us during our guided tours to protect our mountain environment and our national park.
We are constantly working to further develop and improve our environmental profile. Our goal is that our guests, both now and in the future, should experience unspoiled mountain scenery. Help us look after our environment!
