FIELD TRIP, 8-9 JULY 2023
In the middle of the summer school, an extracurriculum trip to the Finland's Lakeland region will be organised on 8–9 July 2023.
Welcome to a relaxing and exiting field trip to the shores of Lake Saimaa. Saimaa is the biggest lake in Finland and 4th largest lake in Europe. The accommodation is the old schoolhouse turned into camping destination. Activities for the weekend include kayaking, e-cycling, and nature adventure where you must find locations marked on the maps handed to you. At the marked location you will find questions about the surrounding nature.
Kayaking and cycling will start right at your accommodation. Both activities are guided with a professional guide. During kayaking you can enjoy the beautiful Finnish lake scenery. During cycling trip you can see the Finnish countryside with electric assisted bicycles. With a luck you can see farm animal and faming in action.
At the accommodation site you will find a traditional Finnish sauna right at the lake. This is a “must do” -thing visiting Finland. There is also an outdoor BBQ area. The night is spent indoors on bunk beds.
This is an optional activity which is not included to the basic social programme. Therefore the participants pay a separate fee for the trip (EUR 210), which include:
- Accommodation and all activities (kayaking, e-cycling, nature adventure),
- Lunches, snack, dinner, and breakfast + water supply
- Linen, towels
- Guides are present during the organized programs
You should definitely take this memorable opportunity!
*LUT and LAB students participating in the LUT Summer School are also welcomed to take part in this trip.
