Pasi was an incredible tour guide. I contacted Pasi about his new Northern Lights Tour two days prior to see if he was available and I am so happy he was! Not only did he pick me up from my hotel, but he had fun adventures planned while we waited for the lights to show. We snow skiid on a frozen sea (he was very patient in teaching me), snow shoed though the forest where we saw a very clear sky and many beautiful stars, and had tea/coffee and cookies during a break. Given that seeing the lights is not guaranteed...just having these experiences along with Pasi's company made the tour amazing in and of itself. Pasi is very knowledgeable about the lights, nature, and has a great intuition so at the end of the tour...we saw the lights! It was so beautiful and he made sure to get pictures of the sky and of me with the lights in the background. It was amazing to get that bucket list item checked off! I very strongly recommend Pasi as a tour guide!

We wanted to get out and explore the winter countryside around Oulu during our stay between Christmas and New years. We found this company on line but were not sure what to expect as we had both never skied before but Pasi explained everything and we found it easy to pick up the technique of Forrest Skiing. The scenery was amazing traveling through forest with trees covered in ice. Stopping for coffee around a fire was a highlight. We liked the trip so much we decided to book a days ice fishing the next day which was an experience even though we were unlucky not to catch anything it was something you need to try at least once. I recommend wrapping up warm as it gets cold standing around on the ice.

The fantastic Nature Guide called PASI NURMIKUMPU is behind this business, organising taylor made days outs in the surrounding areas of Oulu and other parts of Finland. He took me on a cross country skiing day. The photos were all taken in Muhos on our day together. He picked me up from my hotel, guided me to beautiful countryside sceneries, made fire & had a hot tea with buscuits and even got to ride a snowmobile whilst having a break in the woods. Some kind finnish couple spending their day there as well allowed me to drive their ride. :-) Then we went to visit a local husky farm. By the time we arrived, was too late to have a husky spin, but it's something else maybe for the next time. Pasi can perhaps help you to arrange that or get you in touch with the family if interested. He also does fishing, icefishing, and staying over in the woods in a tent if that's what tickles your fancy. Prices vary, best thing is to get in touch with him and discuss the details. I can not wait to go back to Oulu and go on another adventure with his guidance. :-)
