When I was 10 years of age, new route to Anttola Village School took me through the forest. Whether winter or summer, I followed the route to school either on foot or on skis. The journey was filled with adventure and memorable experiences with nature. Gradually I started to understand mor and more about the forest and learned to read its signs.
Today, I still pass through the Anttola forests, both for work and pleasure. The beloved environment I grew up has become my job. Whether participating in canoing, biking or hiking treks, security is always number one, but also story is important.
Treks are always inspirational and I make effort to combine cultural heritage with nature trails.
Lakes Saimaa and Luonteri, my home, are located in Southeastern Finland. At approximately 4.400 square kilometres it is the largest lake in Finland. One of the most famous residents of lake Saimaa are the engandered Saimaa Ringed Seals, a freshwater seal that only lives at Saimaa. With 120 lakes and 14000 island, the area I guide people, Saimaa, is the fourth largest freshwater area in Europe and selected among the Worlds’ most beautiful lake areas by the Wall Street Journal in July 2014.
