Today Knutitours – Knuti’s Weekly Magazine and the Knuipe – celebrates it’s 12th anniversary! It all started with a little polar bear with the name Knut. This magic bear connected people all over the world and he’s still the guiding star on our tour in the wonderful world of polar bears – and, naturally, even other animals.

Terve! Hello! Dear readers, it’s your Sisu writing a special Advent newsletter to you. I wanted to do something special this Advent and suddenly I got a splendid idea. I would visit my pal Aron in Tallinn! Being a guy of action I didn’t let the snow melt under my paws!

Terve! Hello! It’s been quite a while since my last newsletter – simply because I haven’t got so much to tell you. Just like my big brother Ranzo I’m taking things very easy these days. I’m waiting for the snow and the first snow did actually fall here in Ranua but it melted away very rapidly. Where did it go? Can you help me to solve this mystery?
