You probably already guessed who is the spark you’ll be adding? That’s right, it’s me! You can finally experience Tampere the right way – with a spirit of a local guiding you into the heart of the city.
Here’s me in a nutshell and why I’ve decided to become a local guide: In 2011 when I was moving to Australia, I started looking at my hometown with a whole new set of eyes. Even before moving I started to long back to these streets that I get to call home. Feeling the hippie-ish atmosphere of Tampere, it was something that I knew I was gonna miss.
I’ve lived here almost all of my life and yet somehow missed everything there is to know about this city. Luckily working in marketing and tourist information of Visit Tampere / Business Tampere in the years 2015-2017 opened my eyes. I have (if even possible) fallen in love with this city even more.
So, take this journey with me! All my tours and bookings are in Doerz. You can also contact me directly via email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Below here you can read small captions of what I have to offer for your holiday.
Instagrammable Pispala – colourful houses and lake sceneries
The idea of the tour is that you get a personal photographer with you to the most incredible sceneries of Pispala. Pispala has been voted many times as the most beautiful neighbourhood of Finland, and for a reason. I will take you to places that guarantee good photos of yourself and for you to take on your own too. For photos of yourself I will use my own camera and send you edited photos (5-10 photos) after the tour.
The tour takes 1,5 hours. Price: 40 € / person.
Hiking in Kintulammi + campfire snacks
Kintulammi is one the newest hiking areas in Tampere. The route is easy for all ages. After walking through a nature preservative forest we stop for a campfire. You get to cook your own sausages/vegan sausages over open fire and for dessert we have “stick buns”. There is even a small lake for you to dip into while I build the campfire!
The tour takes 5 hours. Price: 120 € / person + 20 € extra persons (for two 140 € etc.). Includes foods and the ride from city centre and back.
From Hell to East -tour: A day in one of Finland’s most popular and beautiful sceneries
Too often I’ve heard tourists saying they can’t make it to Hell’s Lake National Park (Helvetinjärven kansallispuisto) simply because of transport. There are no public buses going here which makes it almost impossible to visit during your travels. Well, I decided that no more! No more is it impossible to reach by tourists. A trip to Hell’s Lake and Hell’s Gorge will take the whole day and we walk about 4-5 km. During the day we have lunch at a campfire. You can also dip in the lake!
The tour takes 8 hours. Price: 190 € / person + 20 € extra persons (for two 140 € etc.). Includes foods and the ride from Tampere and back.
You can also ask for an offer and available dates. All of my tours are easily booked here. See you in Tampere!
