Sawo-Karjala Excursion is one of the most famous and popular May Day celebration traditions of the Student Union (ISYY). During the Excursion, students circle around Eastern Finland on buses on a predetermined route which will remain a secret until the buses start their trip. The buses will also stop at restaurants and pubs at different locations giving students a chance to enjoy some refreshments (the refreshments are not included in the price of the tour). The Excursion will start around noonish and last until the late evening.
Traditionally, the Sawo-Karjala Excursions have been held at Joensuu and Kuopio campuses. This year, the Excursion will also be organised in Savonlinna, in case there are enough preliminary enrolments.
There will be more information given out on the timetables of the Excursions later, stay tuned and keep an eye on ISYY’s communication channels!
