Pledge of Lake Saimaa
I agree to be a responsible traveller and to act in accordance with the following guidelines.
WHEN EXPLORING NEW PLACES
I will respect nature and leave the environment as I found it. I take rubbish with me. I will keep pets contained.
I PREFER SIGNPOSTED ROUTES
and walk with purpose, respecting others and nature. I respect restricted and private areas.
I CAMP ONLY IN AUTHORIZED AREAS
I will not wash myself or dishes in the lake. I act in accordance with the rules of wilderness cabins and campsites.
I FAVOUR RECYCLING
by favouring recyclable products and sorting my rubbish. I use as few disposable products as possible.
I SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT
by informing hotel cleaning staff that towels and sheets do not need to be changed daily. I am also careful in water consumption. I turn off unnecessary appliances and lights when I leave the room to save electricity.
