Glacier walk in Iceland!
Glacier walk in Iceland!

My love of travel turned into a profession after the travel bug had bit me on a language course to England. Born and raised in Finland I've since lived in Scotland, Singapore and the USA and traveled to over 30 countries all over the world.

I am an avid hill/mountain hiker, often claiming the title of the most unfit hiker ever to reach a given summit or top, and I love nature, hiking, cultural and historical sites and road trips. My favorite experiences have been Scotland, Hiking the Inca Trail, Croatian road trip, The National Parks of the Western USA and climbing Mt Fuji to name a few at the top of my list!

Seeing the sunrise on the top of Mt Fuji, hiking through rain forest in Peru or gazing at the steep slopes of a deep Norwegian fjord are memories and experiences I truly cherish and I want to help my clients gain wonderful experiences and memories lasting a lifetime of their own. My personal experiences and contacts all over the world help me build and tailor trips to my clients needs and desires and I’m looking forward to helping you discover new (or old!) parts of the world!
