Who are we?
- Home is closer than you think... -

Boreal quest is founded and operated by Markus Jokinen, certified international wilderness guide and forest immersion instructor. 
 
Markus spent seven years in Nepal, France and Germany working in NGO's, education, marketing and restaurants before deciding against all office work. He returned to his roots in Finland in order to combine his language skills and his passion for the outdoors. Markus seeks to educate and encourage people searching for a closer relationship with nature to do so through wilderness skills that allow them to step into the world that is all too often only spoken of from the safety of our living rooms. 
 
When not guiding for other companies, abroad and in Finland, he can often be found enjoying cabin life and hunting in central Finland.  
 
With advanced first aid certificates and food hygiene passports as well as years of hiking experience from Finnish Lapland to the Annapurnas in Nepal and the Siberian taiga, we aim to provide our customers a safe, inspiring, hands-on experience of the ways of the northern forest.  
 
Course languages available: English, Finnish, French, German, Russian.
