Cultural Fitness' Summer tours 2010

Kesä-Suomi 2010 -karttaWhy not try circus, carpet weaving, chamber music or contemporary children’s culture? Would you like to spend your holiday at an inn in the calm of Lapland or at a rock festival in
the idyllic Åland Islands? Perhaps hot summer towns are your thing – or maybe you’re interested in the art exhibitions of the
summer season?

The Cultural Fitness project and Finland Festivals in conjunction offer summer tours to suit a variety of tastes and different life situations.

Choose just the right tour for you or customise your own festival summer based on the routes.

You can also pick up a paper version of the Cultural Fitness Finland 2010 Summer Map.
