World’s first experiential programme focusing on climate warming impact on arctic environment

Luxury Action and Octola five star private wilderness are announcing an exclusive partnership with the Arctic Centre and University of Lapland in Rovaniemi, Finland.

Luxury Action and Octola private wilderness are announcing a partnership with the Arctic Centre and University of Lapland to support the Arctic environment, wildlife and local livelihood. Our aim is to disclose the impact of global warming on the Arctic environment.

As Arctic luxury travel specialists, Luxury Action is not able alone to prevent climate change or achieve a zero carbon footprint, but it can support scientific work in the region by collaborating with the Arctic Centre and spreading the word about warming temperatures and their effects in the Arctic.

By joining the educational programme participants can become protectors of the Arctic. Our goal is to support Arctic scientific research to learn more about climate change and its effects on the environment, its wildlife, local culture and livelihood. The programme has been developed together with the Arctic Centre University of Lapland and regional stakeholders, including reindeer herders and game hunters in northern Lapland.

The programme issues an invitation to experience life in the Arctic, to learn how people lived in the region before climate change became a contemporary issue. "This programme is part of our mission at the Arctic Centre to carry out research, and climate change is nowadays one of our top priorities,” says Nicolas Gunslay, director of the Arctic Science Centre in Rovaniemi, the capital of Finland’s Lapland province.

“Our mission is also to communicate, and not only with researchers, so we see this exciting partnership with Luxury Action as a great opportunity to improve our ability to communicate more widely about climate change.” Nicolas Gunslay, director of the Arctic Science Centre in Rovaniemi, the capital of Finland’s Lapland province.
