Event descriptionWe are pleased to invite you to visit our mysterious country “up in the north”. In summer 2013 we organize a 6-days overland tour from Capital Helsinki to tiny town of Sotkamo, which hosts World Orienteering Championships 2013. Our main idea is to show you best parts of our country and to provide you unforgettable memories to be brought home. During the tour we shall enjoy unspoiled nature, visit interesting companies, get familiar with Finnish cuisine (perhaps even learn to make some specialities by ourselves), travel by different means of transport and take a look at Finnish summer festivals (some of them are quite strange ;). Travelling together with other OL-minded people around the world, will not only give you more new friends, but also guarantees fun! Along the route we are of course also happy to provide you taste of different OL-experiences in Finland with short specially tailored events. If you feel this is not enough, why not to visit Russia before or after the tour. Russian city of Saint Petersburg, with its rich cultural heritages, is easily accessible from Helsinki. More information about O-Tour-Finland 2013 will be provided later on. However mark the dates to your calendar already now!After our 6-days tour, we believe you are ready to concentrate for orienteering challenges at WOC2013 spectators events, and to support your own national team for victory! You are cordially welcome. Let’s make together summer 2013 something special!
