“My name is Ville and it was an obvious choice for me to become a guide. I looked for an internship in the end of my studies and heard positive feedback about Safartica from friend of mine and I’ve been working in Safartica ever since.
I love to spend time outdoors with different kind of people from different cultures. Especially the longer safaris are something worth trying when we have more time to get to know each other and enjoy the moment with no hurry. One of the most unforgettable moments was when I guided a snowmobile safari and one guy decided to propose his girlfriend under the Northern Lights.
As a guide, I’m quite calm and want to make other people’s holidays special. I’m glad when people ask questions and I encourage them to do so! I’ve always lived here in Lapland and it brings me pure joy when I can share my knowledge and stories. I really enjoy my work here at Safartica, because we have such a great team and everyone does this most importantly for their love for Lapland.
If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of big cities, Ylläs is a great choice for you. This is a small, peaceful and idyllic village where you are surrounded by the most authentic nature of Lapland. When you climb on the top of Ylläs fell, the view is so incredible that it’s impossible to describe it with words. You must experience it with your own eyes.”
