Happiness is found in Finland
Imagine an evening under the northern starry sky as the frost nips your cheeks and the northern lights flare in the sky. Imagine stepping into the silence of a lush forest and picking fresh berries grown embraced by the bright nights of Lapland. Imagine diving into clear natural waters or fishing your own dinner. Imagine a magical night when the sun does not set at all. Imagine pulling your lungs full of clean, fresh air, away from the noise and pollution of metropolises. Imagine a peaceful, safe and clean country that you can enjoy as you learn new skills, our language and our culture. In Finland, happiness is at your fingertips – grab it once and you do not want to let go.
Finnish nature offers an excellent learning environment for foreign student and pupil groups. An educational tour in Finland organized by the educational tourism company Northern Skills Finland Education Ltd of Peräpohjolan Opisto folk high school is a gateway to both the Finnish educational system and the inimitable Finnish lifestyle. We offer fully tailored year-round school camps and educational tours that consist of different themes, combining the crown jewels of Finland, our world-famous education, and our picturesque nature that is equally accessible to all. We organize the itinerary in regions around Tornio, Kemi, Haparanda and Rovaniemi, in the exotic landscapes of Southern Lapland and Lapland.
Whatever your group is, we are able to offer you a tailored, unique and memorable tour – without forgetting education. The tourism and education parts are planned to overlap in a fun and adventurous way in the Finnish nature. The education is organized by the Peräpohjolan Opisto folk high school, and unlike many other actors, we are also able to issue official certificates to the participants.
Through educational tourism, guests can experience the world-famous Finnish teaching practices in the form of a school camp, educational tour or twinning of schools. We are particularly interested in phenomenon-based learning and learning by doing, as well as the utilization of nature as a learning environment.
We organize educational tours for foreign student and pupil groups. Most commonly, the school camp participants are children and adolescents between 10 and 17 years of age, who come to explore Finland and learn about our culture. Educational tourism combines education and tourism in an exciting way.
To get started, first have a look at our sample camps, and explore different options and possibilities for camp content. The implementation is always tailored according to the wishes and educational needs of each group of visitors. Please contact our contact person so we can start planning.
