About LakelandGTE

LakelandGTE (Guide Tours Events) Outdoor company was founded in 2009 in Varkaus, north of lake Saimaa in eastern Finland. It is a one-man company run by mr Arto Keinänen, wilderness guide with 28 years’ experience in international tourism. LakelandGTE offers tours & outdoor activities including small-bus-tours, canoe- and kayak-fishing tours, wild-food-tours, seal watching tours and small group sightseeing tours. In winter time, I do snow-shoe adventures, ice fishing and ice floating experiences.

As a small business owner, I want to offer only the best service. You will enjoy my private tours more than any big-tourist-resort standard tour. Personal service, tailor-made tours and safety are my trademarks. On my tours you will feel welcome, whatever your background. I will make you see, feel & learn new things about the nature. I am constantly looking for great new destinations in my area and building new interesting tours for you. The four seasons of Finland each have their own attractions, and I want to show them to you, all year round. I speak fluent Finnish, English and French, and some German, Swedish, Italian and Russian.

Lake Saimaa is my playground. Saimaa is the biggest lake in Finland, and it offers thousand great places for water activities and magnificent scenery. Dream holiday destination for whoever likes pure nature.
