Authentic and truly local
Explore, learn, feel
After years of working in the tourism industry, we decided to combine our skills and offer our own excursions to let other experience Finnish nature the way we do. Closeness to nature is a huge part of the Finnish way of being, and we want to give everyone the opportunity to enjoy it and get to know it.
