All roads lead to LaplandHow did everything got started?
We are a family-run business concentrated on cottage rentals for over 20 years. My first trip to Lapland took part when I was three months old and we had a vacation in Ylläs with my parents. Something may have happened in my head because after that, almost all of my travels were targeted to Lapland. My grandfather and my father were also very eager to travel to Lapland so I think that may have affected too. Common fishing trips and holiday trips with my family and friends finally led me to the point where I decided to pack my goods and move up to the north. I started studying there and finally, I ended up working in Kittilä. In 2016 I decided to move closer to my family in Southern Finland. Even though I no longer live in Lapland, the saying “A man can leave Lapland behind, but Lapland never leaves a man”, is true in my case.
Before moving to Southern Finland, I wanted to make sure that I have a place in Lapland to where I can always return. I decided to build my own villa in Ylläs. It was named Safiiri. When I built Safiiri in the autumn of 2015, I thought this villa is for my own use. However, after some time I realised I want to share it so that other people can enjoy it too. Now Safiiri and other carefully selected villas are available for you as well.
