Johanna Mikkola

Johanna has grown up surrounded by the forests of Southern Finland and she has always seen the nature not just as a playground, but as a source of constant wonder.

That experience brought her into the field of guiding.

In the summer of 2014 she graduated as an Arctic Nature Guide from the studies on Svalbard (Spitsbergen). Svalbard, however, despite of its beauty and charm felt too barren and too close to the edge of the world, which led her to Lapland.

She has always loved the northern parts of Finland and this is where she finally feels like home.

Johanna and her two arctic dogs are happy to share you the stories of these areas and lead you into the amazing nature we live among.
