“I have been working for Finnish banking businesses for 17 years. As a part of my job, I brought my clients and colleagues to Ilomantsi for fly-fishing. This is how I got the idea to make this my livelihood. I was brought up in Ilomantsi, I know the area and its nature very well, so opening a nature travel business was a natural solution. I decided to start this business in the year 2000, got my Wilderness Guide diploma and established this company called Honkalintu. 
I haven't regretted my decision."


“In the distant lands of the zither,
where de pine bird dwells,the wind seems to sing through their nests,
while the gale fiddles with the delicate sprigs.
I have experienced the whole,
to the whole I have opened my eyes,
In my pilgrimage to the distant lands of the zither,
I found my peace again, where the pine bird dwells.” 
-Markku
