Summer camp in Finnish Lapland

Finnish Lapland is the land of myths and dreams. It is where summer and winter meet – the place where light and darkness dance together from the white summer months to the dark aurora nights. Summer adventure camp gives us a possibility to step outside our comfort zone and open our eyes to new world and new cultures. There is no limit for what can be achieved during the camp; new challenges, different kind of environments and diverse cultures create meaningful learning experiences.

Summer camp itinerary highlights:

  • Finnish sauna experience
  • Baking a Finnish blueberry pie together
  • Hiking in Sweden – picnic lunch over campfire by a forest lake
  • Fishing by the riverside
  • Seal Safari
