Experience the Finnish Winter

Besides the official programme, you will also have a great opportunity to try out some winter activities. We'll offer you a chance to dip in the frozen river or to go snowshoeing guided by our Activity Tourism students.


A snowshoe is footwear for walking over the snow. The simplicity of practicing this sport makes it the easiest of all winter sports, because if you can walk, you can snowshoe.

Winter Swimming

Winter swimming is the act of entering water that has formed a frozen top layer or water that is around 0°C. When winter swimming in outdoor waterways, it is usually necessary to make a hole in the ice.

Try a Husky Safari

We offer you the option of trying a Husky Safari during the International Week. You will be swept from the excitement of the arena out into the peaceful and surreal winter forests. Learn how to harness the sled dogs and practice the skill of driving over a long distance. The trail is 6 km long. You will also be introduced to the huskies daily lives.  The husky safari costs approximaterly 90 euros/person (incl. safari outfit and hot drinks).
