Finland, home to Santa Claus, northern Lights, reindeer and endless summer sun and winter nights.
Our most recent trip for one of our regular school clients took the group to Finland for a Winter Edventure exploring new culture, activities and environment!
Finland offers a fantastic range of activities for schools and adult groups alike, and with our new found destination in the southern most fjells of the country, it provided the perfect setting for our school tour. Iso Syote is one of the few winter activity areas in Finland, and with the support of the resort of the same name, offers groups a multi-activity programme: husky-dog sledding, reindeer farm and sledding, fat-bike winter mountain biking, ice-fishing, tobogganing, snow-shoeing, ski and snowboard on pristine slopes, and a northern lights safari by snowmobile. There are more activities on offer and can be tailored to all groups depending on number of days, age and focus.
There are other side-trips available for which our group opted for: a trip to Lapland to see Santa Claus (the real one!), Ranua Zoo and time in Helsinki city to round-off a very memorable trip for everyone.
If you would be interested in a trip to Finland please contact us for more details. As part of the EU it has Euro for its currency and is somewhat less-expensive than its neighbours: Sweden, Norway and Iceland. A good time of year to visit is December through to end of March (April marking the end of the winter season). The months of December through February are colder and have longer nights but the activities on offer are provided throughout the season and well managed to cope with the cold and limited light during these periods.
