I have enjoyed nature since childhood and done a variety of things in there, such as hunting. My passion is to guide people and tourists, and I want to share our unique culture and nature, therefore, I want to offer this type of service. I have good social skills and I have already learned to be with different kind of people. I founded my own company in 2017 for this purpose.

Boiii it was one amazing trip! Everything one can do in Lapland we could do. Arriving to the forest cottage in a super cute and cozy sledge behind Jukka’s snowmobile was a great entré. The route through the white forest is really magical. At the lake where the cottage is located we prepared a little fire, sipped some drinks Jukka served us and headed to punch some hole into the ice for ice fishing. We were less lucky here, I guess the fishes were sleeping but drilling the holes into the thick ice cover was great fun already. But we did not stay hungry, before the sauna we grilled some local sausages, Makkara. In the meantime Jukka warmed up the woodburn sauna and we could start enjoying this real finnish way of sweating. For dinner Jukka made great tortillas with moosemeat. Overall it was an amazing day, had great fun with Jukka amd enjoyed every moment of it. Could get a sneakpeak how finnsih people enjoy their freetime.

Yukka organised our best day in Lapland. If you want to see local things, Yukkas program is a MUST! He picked us up by car at our hotel and took to his house. From there we were transported by his snowmobile sled, what is very very cute! We traveled through the amazing forest and finally arrived to Yukkas holiday house. It is a real winter wonderland, exactly like on the postcards. There you can see the real face of Lapland. Its so piece and quiet that you cant imagine. At fist we went icefishing on the lake what is a very relaxing program, and we also catched fish:) We were making campfire and drinking beer, vodka and traditional finnish hot redwine what is very tasy. We baked some makkara (finnish sausages) and Yukka told us a lot of interesting stories. He knows a lot about history, traditional finnish things, gastronomy, nature, school system and he is very openminden in any topics. We really enjoyed talking with him, he teached us unique things of Lapland. He also have a very cute wooden heated sauna, right at the lake, totally like on the postcards, and after icefishing and eating, we could use it. Its very nice to do it when its cold outside, and the atmosphere is amazing. If the sky is clear, you can also see the aurora borealis from there. While we were sitting in the sauna, Yukka made us moosemeat food with vegetables, what is very good and fresh. At the end Yukkas sister came, picked us up by car and took home. I can tell you that this family and Yukkas program is very very heartwarming, they are smiling, joking and show you the real face of Lapland. If you want something else than the crowded touristic places, you definetly have to book Yukkas tour. Thank you Yukka! You made our Lapland trip wonderful and it will be a lifelong story we ll tell to all our friends:) You are very welcome if you come to Hungary!!!:)
