About Our Family

Our family: Henri (53) and Kaisa (54) and our son Juho (25) who might travel with us. If you are interested in having a holiday in a city by the sea and river, do not hesitate to contact us, we will reply to all offers. We have had seven exchanges so far (Switzerland, Canada, Belgium, the Netherlands, England, Iceland and France).

Lifestyle

We live on a river, so you can go canoeing straight from the backyard. There are plenty of opportunities for various outdoor activities like hiking in the forests of national parks, golf, shooting rapids, cycling, swimming etc. You live in a city, yet close to nature. The easiest way to move around is by car or bike. The capital city Helsinki is within easy reach by car (1,5 hours) or bus. There are also convenient package tours arranged from Kotka to Tallinn (Estonia) and Vyborg and St Petersburg (Russia).
