Аннотация: The article focuses on the development of mobile, post-productivist countryside in Russian Karelia. We analyse the forestry village of Koivuselkä during the last 20 years. The emergence of mobile society has modernised the social networks and everyday life of the village. People have today connections to many places through their work, leisure, and housing. Forestry work employs mobile labour instead of local inhabitants, and the village is transforming to a place, where non-locals spent leisure time. Everyday life of the permanent inhabitants is also divided between multiple places and more mobile than earlier.
