was founded in 1995. The company’s policy is to offer unique experiences in the Finnish nature  with samples of Karelian culture and cuisine. Ask for the story of the company name! The founders of the company were “angry birds” of their time!


is an expert guide and campfire cook. She likes archery and canoeing. She knows how to set up a traditional smoke sauna and always succeeds in finding the way home after a day of adventures.

“Every tour has its special focus – but they all have some things in common: hiking, biking, canoeing and skiing and getting to know each other and the locals.

One evening is spent in a traditional smoke sauna – but you can go to sauna every evening if you wish. The day always starts with a hearty breakfast and nothing is planned before the breakfast. Our cross country skiing tour requires skiing experience and a good condition, but you also get fitter every day!”
