The Wild Taiga is an endless forest of unspoilt nature. What do you find so fascinating about this place?
I know the east of Finland really well now. It’s sheer wilderness, made up of ancient coniferous forests, crystal clear lakes and rivers. You find very few people out here, but a unique abundance of wildlife. I’m overcome by those moments when I’m just sitting there, full of humility, and am simply grateful that I’m able to finance my life like this. I hope I never lose sight of the beauty of this landscape. That’s why I try to tell myself as often as I can that my everyday existence is an adventure. Sometimes, I spend weeks immersed in the nature of my home country, and every time I get an even closer insight into the animals around me. I see the same ones again and again, watch their behaviour and, in the end, am always able to tell a story about them.
