About Marja - the Doer

I love being outdoors and when having a dog, I go outside every day. Being in the nature is my time to relax and enjoy. There you forget the time and enjoy the nature as it is, no matter if the sun is shining or it's raining.

My dog Unna is a friendly 10-year-old Gordon Setter and will surely give you a lick or two if you like to.


You will need proper shoes for walking in the forest and a suitable clothing for the present weather conditions. Otherwise you do not need any special outdoors equipment. We take it easy, but, Ounasvaara is a hill, so you might get some heat on the uphills.


During our walk along the nature paths in Ounasvaara hill we enjoyed the peaceful setting right next to the city centre of Rovaniemi. It is always very easy to spend time with Marja, the conversations vary from different cultures and habits to everyday living in Lapland. Unna the Gordon Setter loves beign in the forest and is easy to get acquainted with.
All in all, an experience I’m happy to repeat over and over again!
