Here are the choices we have made to be ecologically sustainable.
There are air heat pumps in every Pyhän Asteli’s accommodation unit which can be remotely controlled. This helps keeping the temperatures on the same level all the time.
PUBLIC SAUNA AND OUTDOOR POOL:
There is a public sauna available for everyone who is staying in Pyhän Asteli. During high season it is heated every day and customers who have a sauna in their cabin can also use the public sauna if they want to reduce the use of electricity. There is a pool outside the sauna and the water comes straight from a forest stream. There is a natural flow with the water which comes in and out of the stream, so no chemicals are needed to keep the pool clean.
To be more environmentally friendly, we use two-stroke snowmobiles instead of four-stroke snowmobiles.
Local ingredients are used in our restaurant, for example, the reindeer meat comes from a nearby reindeer farm.
We recommend public transportation when people transfer between the airport and Pyhän Asteli. Public transportation and local taxis are recommended when the customers need to transfer to an activity place or Pyhä center.
LED lights are used in our resort because they are energy efficient and recyclable.
