I love to give my guests an opportunity to learn more about our country and the Finnish lifestyle and history.
Please join me on the tours of Helsinki, Suomenlinna Fortress or the Vallisaari Island to relax and enjoy and learn more.
My passion, as for most of us Finns, is its unspoiled nature and wide variety of indigenous plants and fungi.
On my Urban and Nature tours I would like to introduce our rocky beaches and forests near Helsinki with multiple stories from our ancient heritage.
Please join me on the Cape of Kallvik - tour. My Food Tours will introduce to you the arctic kitchen and the Culture Tours get you an access to places out of ordinary tourist's reach, try The Helsinki Cultural City Tour or the Tour of Tuusulanjärvi or Tour of The Old City of Porvoo.
I am a tourism professional with an academic degree in creative writing and tourism. I have written several books, one of them is about the culture of bathing and the sauna. Please join on my Sauna Tour - you will love it.
Hobbies and interests:
Books, gardens, writing, history and politics, crocheting good voodoo-dolls, sea running (I will teach you how to do it if you are interested.)
