Me and my trails
I'm here in Kuusamo for the same reason as you are coming here. Real seasons, amazing nature, silence.
I'm also from south, from Helsinki. 35 years ago our family came here for a camping holiday and since that I've spent most of my free time hiking, camping, skiing, somewhere in north. 15 years ago I moved here permanently. Day by day I spent more and more time in the woods and left office life totally behind me. So here I am and there's no going back. I love this nature around me, pace of living which follows the rhythm of nature. I want to pick bilberries for breakfast and make my tea from spring water. I want to breath clean air, feel the moss under my bare feet, eat snow and swim in the lakes.
We guide you
We love and respect nature around us and hope that you do too. We are happy to share all this with you, teach you something about it and show its beauty.
This is my work and also my hobby. Usually it is me, who takes you to excursions. But sometimes it can be some of my friends, another guide, who has been walking these trails with me so many times.
Giving Back and Taking Care
We walk our trails with love and respect for nature. We prefer local and sustainable products and try to keep our footprints as green as possible.
We're treehuggers, forest folk
We have a lot of trees in Finland and yes, sometimes we burn them in campfires. We make campfires to dry our clothes, keep us warm or cook food. At public fireplaces firewood comes from Metsähallitus and its economic forests.
For every campfire we plant at least one tree somewhere in the world. 2018 we planted 72 trees. You can do that too: wwf.panda.org
