What are we going to do

What was the Finnish jaeger movement, why did it start and how it did affect Finland's independence? Answers to these questions will be found while walking through some of the jäger movement's important waypoints and monuments in the center of Kemi. The guided tour starts near Kemi railway station from front of Café Hertta and tour ends to Kemi's inner harbour. After approximately 2 kilometres walk we will notice how surprisingly many objects and traditions can still be seen a hundred years later!

About Toni - the Doer

I have lived all my life here in the Gulf of Bothnia and always been interested in history and theater as a hobby. For my work I have done different jobs on the service sector and tourism, so the guidance and especially guided tours with role characters have been the perfect way to combine work and hobbies. I have graduated from my studies in Rovaniemi to the tourism industry in 2013 and worked for example to safari companies, Kemi tourism and Gold Prospector Museum in Tankavaara.
