Cooperative for Cultural and Experience Travels in Lahti Region is a business founded in 2014. We focus on tourism and cultural activities and our goal is to develop and promote experience, nature and cultural tourism as well as further and record the cultural heritage and historical research of Lahti, the Päijät-Häme area and its surrounding areas.

We also support museums, entrepreneurs and companies that in their own way uphold the area’s cultural and natural resources and encourage the preserving of these resources through sustainable principles.

We are also known by the name ELMA Travels (ELMA Matkat), which produces, sells and markets package tours. We are constantly developing and adding new destinations to our selection. We offer visa services too. Our goal is to differentiate ourselves from other travel agencies with the experiences we offer and the quality service of our tour leaders and guide services.

Our office is located in the centre of Lahti on Hämeenkatu 15, on the 4th floor of the building.

We welcome anyone interested in traveling, culture and experiences to join us. You can participate either as a member of the cooperative, partner or a customer.
