Our Trekker's Values are:
Preserve and Respect The Nature
Help a Friend in Need
Taking Care of the Environment
Ruka Trek will move into new premises in 2021. Ruka Trek and Hard Trek Café is a combination that introduce a new customer service concept in Ruka. A true trekker's house. And we try our best to leave as small envirionmental footprint as possible.
Low Carbon Materials
Ruka Trek's new house has a CLT timber frame and the main building materials made of responsibly sourced and certified wood products. So the building itself will operate as carbon storage for its entire life cycle.
Our HQ will use only CO2 free energy and it will be equipped with battery loading stations for electric cars and bikes. So while you enjoy your refreshing brake at the Hard Trek Café or one of our tours, you can load up your vehicle using renewable energy.
Our waste management guidelines start from the sourcing of goods and gear. Basic rule is that if possible the materials sourced are always receyclable or from renewable sources.
We also aim that whatever we use or consume, we use it to the maximum. And when the lifecycle ends the materials are recycled into new materials or into new usage.
