My name is Luka, I’m an exchange student from Slovenia studying tourism at the University of Lapland. I came to Rovaniemi because I love nature and animals, I like meeting new people and experiencing new things. For that same reason, I decided to start working for Wild About Lapland.

Hi, I’m Gábor from Hungary! Firstly I came to Finland 10 years ago, as an Erasmus student, where I studied tourism. That time I had the possibility to visit Lapland 2 times. It was love at the first sight, and I already knew, I have to come back here later. And now, here I am. Rovaniemi, the capital of Lapland is my home for more than 3 years. As a nature enthusiast, I have everything here, what I need: (okay, maybe a bit less of warm weather :-)) never-ending forests, crystal clear fresh air and beautiful surroundings. Lapland has countless treasures, and I am more than happy to show them to you!
Passions: Cycling, hiking, nature photography and Aurora hunting.
Languages: Hungarian, English and a bit of Finnish.
After spending a few years abroad I decided it was time to move back to Finland and start a new adventure here, this time in Lapland. I moved from Southern Finland to Rovaniemi to study Tourism research, and what better way is there to get to know the field I am studying than to work in it. As a guide I also get to explore new places and see parts of Lapland I otherwise wouldn’t have discovered.
Passions: Hiking, photography, traveling.
Languages: Swedish, Finnish, English, German, French (un peu).
