Social program - enjoy the beautiful and pure Finnish nature

Our social programme will enable you to discover our town as well as its beautiful surrounding area. The social events also act as a counterbalance for the intensive academic work. The social program will include for example canoeing, day trip to nature with open fire barbecuing and an opening ceremony where is served some of the finest Finnish delicacies. The Summer School offers also possibilities to visit Toivola Old Courtyard, walk through the path of Alvar Aalto, to try Finnish folk dance, and of course, to try Finnish sauna. The final program will be updated on our website and will also be given to you upon your arrival. The Social Program is open to all summer school students and lecturers. If your friends or relatives wish to join the events, please inform the organizers when signing up.
