Marika came to work for the family business in August 2013. Having been brought up in an entrepreneurial family herself, she was never supposed to become an entrepreneur, but as the years went by, Marika changed her mind and returned back to work in the family business.  Years flew by living in southern Finland and abroad. She has a family of two children and a dog and most of her free time is spent outdoors with them.

Marika’s motto is that everything always works out for the best and everything has a purpose.

Marika is responsible for company sales and marketing, and her official title is Managing Director.

Mauri started working as an entrepreneur in 1988, once work finished at the Rautuvaara Mine. In the beginning he ran a travel agency in connection with his wife’s Riitta-Liisa’s bookshop, later to expanding into activity programmes. Back in 1988 there were not that many activity programme enterprises in Ylläs. Mauri himself worked a number of years as a guide and over the years he has done a little less guiding work, but still works actively in the company, although officially he has reached the age of retirement.

Mauri still takes care of the financial administration and transportation of the company, a jack of all trades. His official title is Chairman of the Board of Directors.
