Employees and guides
Olavi first came to work for us in 2000 and became employed full-time since 2003. His job description includes being responsible for operations and he also works as a guide and driver.
Olavi's pastimes include activities with pulse increasing activities, of course with salmon fishing in the summertime. Olavi believes salmon fishing is at its best in the morning; sipping morning coffee on the river, watching the sun rise and nature awaken is a truly relaxing experience. Since he was a young boy, Olavi has been fishing the quiet waters of Lappea. He used to go fishing for grayling with his cousin in August until it got dark. Olavi’s enthusiasm for salmon fishing started in 1998, when he became hooked with his catch of a 17 kg salmon. You can contact Olavi at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Marika came to work for the family business in August 2013. Having been brought up in an entrepreneurial family herself, she was never supposed to become an entrepreneur, but as the years went by, Marika changed her mind and returned back to work in the family business. Years flew by living in southern Finland and abroad. She has a family of two children and a dog and most of her free time is spent outdoors with them.
Marika’s motto is that everything always works out for the best and everything has a purpose.
Mauri started working as an entrepreneur in 1988, once work finished at the Rautuvaara Mine. In the beginning he ran a travel agency in connection with his wife’s Riitta-Liisa’s bookshop, later to expanding into activity programmes. Back in 1988 there were not that many activity programme enterprises in Ylläs. Mauri himself worked a number of years as a guide and over the years he has done a little less guiding work, but still works actively in the company, although officially he has reached the age of retirement.
Mauri still takes care of the financial administration and transportation of the company, a jack of all trades. His official title is Chairman of the Board of Directors.
Nature and its empowering effects have had such an impact on me, that I want our guests to experience the same. My free time is spent cross-country skiing, snowshoe hiking, fishing and taking photographs.
