Visit Kristinestad joined Visit Finland’s Sustainable Tourism program in February 2021. For the moment we are doing a lot of work to get as many as possible of the tourism companies to join the program. Also Visit Kristinestad is working at the program and the main goal, for the companies and Visit Kristinestad, is to receive the STF-label.

The program is a seven-stage development program that a tourism operator can e.g.

- promote sustainable, fair and equal local conditions

- increase safety and quality of business, and

- support the protection of nature and the sustenance of the local cultural heritage.

We at Visit Kristinestad have been promoting these locally already for years, but through this program the goal is now to get an official and international certificate for it.

Welcome to Kristinestad!
