She gets her endless energy from local nature paths, her family, her friends and the sparkling Summer nights of Hanko, in Southern Finland. Our manager knows all the best restaurants and places to be in Finland and always stays up to date, no chance of slowing down.Raili often has her phone glued to her ear and we all know to repeat this sales cannon’s answer to the phone in unison at a quick tempo: ”Hotel Sodankylä, Raili Karvonen-Willman”.
