My friend Vince and I travelled to Jakobstad to visit Trey. This was our big Finland stop in our around-the-world trip from Oslo, Norway to Vladivostok, Russia. He warned us that we might only want to spend a few days around Jakobstad to prevent some inevitable boredom he said we were bound to encounter. But our Ostrobothnian adventures turned out to be the highlight of my whole trip. Trey has a unique perspective and a willingness and dedication to learning that makes him the best tour guide I could have possibly hoped for. We both came from the Pacific Northwest in the United States, so we both came from the same place with similar cultural expectations. Seeing Trey take part in the Finnish culture was fantastic. He has learned the language, he has learned so much of the local history from wartime tactics, to how the land moves and breaths, to things like classic Finnish woodworking. He even translated a whole entire local Jakobstad museum for us! That was one of the special and unique experiences Trey provided for us. Coming into the country as a foreigner, it is truly insightful to see how Trey has observed and analyzed and interwoven himself into the Finnish culture. Him and his wonderful new wife Pernilla were as kind and welcoming as you could ever possibly hope for. Everyone we met through Trey and Pernilla and everything they took us to see gave us the best possible impression of Finland. And we never got bored of Jakobstad. Two thumbs up, more if I had them.

Gulf Stream Guiding takes the time to personalize your adventure and provides an exceptionally professional experience. Our outings with Trey Howard have included day trips to local museums, travel both within and outside of Finland, as well as cross country skiing, hiking and river rafting. His ability to organize and plan the outing to meet the needs of the group he's leading is exceptional. I have the utmost confidence in his leadership and guiding expertise.
