What are we going to do

First, you will arrive at my family home in a village in Ähtäri, about 9 kilometres from the zoo and 15 from the city centre. We will start by lighting a fire in the old grilling hut in our yard. Then we go inside the house to prepare the dough for the sweetbread and the crepes, which will take around 30-45 minutes depending on your experience. We will then go make sure the fire is coming along well and have a tour of the yard, including a short walk in the nearby forest that extends in three directions from the house and a look at our outhouse and woodshed. Afterwards, we will take our doughs and sausages to the grilling hut and cook and eat them there! We may also eat on our terrace if you prefer. Jam and whipped cream will be available to be put on the crepes. I will assist in the cooking and show you around and try my best to answer any questions you may have about the city, the surrounding area or student life in the city!

The estimated 2.5 hours is estimated for a group of 6, I would say groups of 4 and down will be ready in well under that.

About Aino - the Doer

I'm a first-year student at the local high school who has been looking into working in tourism someday. We have a tourism course available in school from which I learnt that it was possible to hold your own little "experiences". I thought this would give me experience, some pocket money and something enjoyable to do during the summer! I've previously had a job at the zoo as a customer service person, so helping and instructing people is nothing new to me. I look forward to spending time with you!


Rubber boots are good to have if you wish to truly walk in the forest, but not required to have.
Do let me know if you have allergies or special diets, such as celiac disease or if you are vegan! I will be able to take those factors into account when buying the components for the recipes.
Our neighbours own cats and they sometimes walk freely in the yard, but they do not spend time in our house.
