Timo with Flavia, Carlo & Giada

Timo is a Laplander who currently lives in Southern Finland, in the city of Hämeenlinna with his wife Päivi and their dog Mosku. His work is very closely connected to nature, as he manages museums and exhibitions for National Parks and Wildlife Service Finland.

Timo spends time in nature every day to relax as well as get inspiration and energy. He believes that nature is pure and simply accepts you as you are. In mid-July Timo will take his guests to Punkaharju to experience Saimaa Lakeland by boat, an area full of islands with smooth beaches and crystal clear waters.

Timo will be accompanied by three guests – Flavia, Carlo & Giada from Pesaro, Italy, who will visit Finland for the very first time. Flavia is a primary school teacher who teaches Italian and English. She heard from Rent a Finn from her brother’s (Carlo) girlfriend (Giada) and decided to make an application for the three of them.

Flavia is a nature enthusiast who loves trekking and has always wanted to visit Finland, but never had the chance – before now. She knows Finns are in close contact with nature and is waiting for a chance to talk about it with Timo. She’s also interested in knowing the secrets behind the Finnish school system, which is said to be the best in the world.

Time of visit: 12.–14.7.2019
