ESN Uni Helsinki organises two trips to Lapland per semester, one to Saariselkä and one to Vasatokka. Saariselkä is Europe’s northernmost ski resort where it is possible to do f.e. downhill skiing. Vasatokka is a wilderness area even further up North from Saariselkä. Otherwise, both trips offer similar amazing opportunities: visiting the Santa Claus Village in Rovaniemi, swimming in the Arctic Ocean in Norwegian Lapland, driving a husky sled, snowshoeing, reindeer safari, driving a snowmobile…and let’s not forget about the incredible Aurora Borealis! What could be more Finnish than this?! The price of both trips is from 339 €. The duration of the trips is six nights.
ESN Uni Helsinki organises two trips to Russia per semester: a visa-free trip to St. Petersburg and a road trip called Grand Russia, which will take you to the three Russian capitals, St. Petersburg, Moscow and Novgorod. The visa-free trip to St. Petersburg lasts four nights and the price is from 275 €. The Grand Russia trip lasts seven nights and the price is from 350 €. For the Grand Russia trip you will need a visa, but Timetravels will help you with applying for it!
