  • Estimated time for handling your cancellation is 14 days, estimated time for refunding your money is 30-60 days.

  • The announced price changes for season 2020-2021 do not apply for these bookings.

If you have already contacted us for cancellation of your booking, please do not send us a new e-mail, we will handle your request as proposed above.

The updated cancellation policy applies only to private customers.

We are living exceptional times and even after 34 years working in tourism I am facing the unknown. As business owner and CEO it is my duty to consider the interests of all of the company’s stakeholders, including our customers who rent the holiday homes, the cabin owners and the countless subcontractors. Just as big is the concern for the well-being, health and future of our employees in this challenging situation.

The Corona virus imposes also a state of emergency on companies, with the constantly new information on the crisis the effects and the scope on all company actions have changed and evolved accordingly. The situation has been changing drastically, even in one day.

The increase in contacts about our cancellation policy and money refunds has grown enormously, but so have the support messages from countless friends and fans of Äkäslompolo from around the world. Many have told us they believe that everything is going to be ok and that they will be returning to our village again, when the time is right.

As the CEO of the company I am now in the situation where my only option is to start to prepare the thoughtful and systematic partial shut down of the company for the rest of the season, even consider suspending operations completely. We aim and hope to protect our customers’ and employees’ health and safety with the immediate actions taken. We will continue to follow the instructions given by our government and we keep you informed through updates on our website.

The impact of the corona virus Covid-19 pandemic is not only financial, it also has an impact on the health of every individual person. We don’t know what will happen in the next days and weeks, we don’t know how it will effect my health and well-being nor that of my employees. For this reason, I kindly ask you, dear friends of Äkäslompolo, to have patience and contact us only through e-mail. We apologise, that we haven’t been able to answer all your contact requests.

As long as I can avoid corona and the Finnish government allows us to enjoy nature I will be posting images of the beautiful nature and fells surrounding my home village during the crisis and after it. Follow me on my personal account on Instagram or on Destination Lapland’s Facebook page. Welcome back to Äkäslompolo when this crisis is over, take care of yourself and your loved ones until then.

Mauri Kuru
CEO, Destination Lapland
