Your hosts, Heikki & Anna
Hello! I’m Heikki Jantunen, the founder and guide at Into The Wild – Wilderness Adventures. I am a passionate all year round trekker who has explored Lapland for years. Originally from Eastern Finland, I studied economics in Stockholm after which I entered into the business consulting. Whilst leading complex IT programs globally, I always had a close connection to nature and wilderness and spent most of my holidays trekking and fishing.
I am Anna Erkinheimo, co-founder and host at Into The Wild – Wilderness Adventures. With roots all over Finland, including Lapland, I have found my sense of belonging in the Northern fells. Background in civil engineering and years in international business have converted into a desire to coach and create experiences for people where they can find new resources within themselves and recharge in connection with the oldest source of wellbeing, nature – because that is what we are all part of. I am also a meditator and mindfulness instructor of six years as well as a life coach.
We decided to follow our desire to share our love of the living world and invite you to the threshold of powerful nature experiences through exploration of this vast, uninhabited, pathless areas in a near natural state. This lodge is our dream come true and living here most of the year provides us with – albeit occasionally some hard work living so far from normal infrastructures – endless amazement of the Mother Earth’s wonders and the cycle of life. We wish the Into The Wild experience be a chance to enjoy, discover and rejuvenate whatever is that is wanting emerge for you with the help of purest source of inspiration – nature.
Join us in a memorable adventure of your lifetime!
