For our foreign guests we have planned two different programmes for the event time (please see below the content of the programmes). The enrolment for VISIT Taitaja enables you to follow Taitaja2019 Competition with a guide, familiarise yourself with Finland’s vocational education system and take part in international seminars on vocational education. In addition, you can explore the history, culture and nature of North Karelia, and enjoy local delicatessen, spa steam and relaxed hanging out with new interesting acquaintances.

We have booked accommodation to Koli, which is a modern tourist centre operating all year round and is especially known for the national park and national landscape. We have organised the bus transportation between Joensuu and Koli (70 km).
