We have more than 20 years of experience as an outdoor journalist, photographer, and guide.  We have always spent a lot of time in the nature being part of the nature and having a big respect for the nature. We live from the nature and do the work by nature’s terms.

We are responsible and reliable. We are passionate about arctic nature, huskies, adventures, and wellness.

We are a family of four, and we have done together with our children wilderness hiking trips since when they were babies. We know how to look after the little ones so that the trip is an unforgettable experience for them.

We live in a lovely old country house by a lake Sierijärvi and we get to experience nature’s presence every single day. We haven’t build things for the companies need but renovated the old buildings with traditional style.

Our yard is part of the biodiversity with nature style garden with all the insects with their own hotels. We have built bird houses to our yard but also to the forest – and we are so happy having Willow Tilt groups visiting us. We have bought forest to protect it from cutting down and there we have mires that we want to renovate to natural shape. We work together with our lake community to clean up the lake. We have been together getting out of it ten thousands of kilos small rough fish and we can see how it has changed the quality of the water. We do waste sorting and waste minimization and we have sorting and recycling points in our home.

With us you will hear stories about our real life about the love and respect of the nature and the our dear huskies. We have been in different medias telling stories about our life style – you can find us for example Apple- Tv Reluctant Travel part 1.

Before we have travelled around the world, and on our own trips it has always been important to create genuine connections with people. During every trip nature and its uniqueness has been essential. We also want to share this experience with you.

We love the quietness of moving by your own feet when we go for the hikes or with the dog sleds. We avoid unnecessary use of motor vehicles.

Being and moving in nature; spending time with friendly huskies; as well as yoga, meditation, and breathing exercises; provide a framework for a great life. To top it all off you can enjoy the sauna, swimming, and nourishing food. We want to offer these things to you, our guest.

Ou our yoga retreats and hiking yoga trips we are moving in the protected areas like national parks and wilderness areas. Which is why we have an agreement with Metsähallitus’ nature services on the possible use of routes and rest areas. We don’t leave no trace behind and we pick up all the trashes on our way – also the others. We also instruct our guests to act responsibly in the nature. We tell about reindeers, wild life and sami life.

Our home is in Sierijärvi and we co-operate with other family travel companies in the region.

  • It is important for us to receive every guest as an individual and to create a genuine connection. For us, every visitor is like a friend, with whom we want to share things that are important to us.
  • We want to introduce our lifestyle to you and do things with you that we enjoy.
  • Nature is the source of our inspiration and our strength – we respect nature and we want to leave it as we found it, in pristine condition.
  • We think that people are a part of nature, and experiencing this is an amazing experience. It will provide the right outlook on life.
  • We appreciate good food and want to offer our favourites to you – authentic local food, nature’s gifts. Good, nourishing nutrition is a great resource.
  • Coping in the wild is a matter of clothing, which is why we provide our guests with high-quality equipment.

We are flexible and creative

Every visitor, and kids in particular, are individuals with their own unique needs, and we understand that completely. We will listen to you so that we can provide an Arctic experience that suits your needs.

We are used to making an effort. If you want to experience something unique we have not thought of, we will do our best to make your wish come true. Perhaps you would like to experience the huskies and the nature privately, with special service or arrangements? Or perhaps you would like to spend time on your own in a beautiful natural place to meditate or relax?

The products we offer are ones that we have personally enjoyed over the years. Your visit to us can be an active hike in nature, a de-stressing trip, or an energising experience, just as you wish.


A happy guest gives meaning to our work.
