Volcanic eruption, economic losses and Mother Nature’s powers

We have got two groups cancelled because of the ash clouds from the volcano on Island. Unbelievable such a chaos nature can cause in our sensitive world. In Sweden the media are talking about how the big air companies could get compensation for their economic losses. Nobody is talking about how much we small tourist companies lose. Many colleagues to us have lost 5 and 6 figured amounts of money but nobody asks for government subsidies. We who work close to nature know that we have to cope with Mother Nature’s powers.

From every fall you learn something and we have learned that it’s both safer and more environment friendly to travel by train. Most of our guests this season have travelled with the night train from Stockholm up to Lapland. A choice they have praised many times.
