I have worked as a safari guide in Kenya, a steward for Finnair, as a hotel receptionist and > 10 years as a guide and tour leader.
Since 1985, I have had my own company in the field of Arboriculture (tree care). Before that I worked, also internationally, as a forest ranger and researcher.
I am an authorized Helsinki-tourguide, a Suomenlinna/Sveaborg sea fortress guide and Nuuksio-national park guide. I can give tours of Lapland with a stop to visit Santa Claus at the Polar circle! Another Arctic possibility is a trip to the North Cape in Norway, Europe's northernmost inhabited place.
I have a professional bus driver licence and get vans and buses of any sizes.
I look forward to serving you.
A Recent Review of this guide
Johan was a terrific guide for my group of six. We opt to have him introduce us to Helsinki on a three-hour tour. He was waiting for us when we docked and the van was comfortable. He offered a very nice mix of history/explanation and hit all the major spots we wished to see. Really appreciated that he gave us time to walk around and explore a bit. The restaurant he dropped us off to enjoy at the end was terrific - we were looking for a good feel of Helsinki and Finland, and Johan delivered! Thanks!
