Villagers are split into groups based on language level and spend the games and projects time learning from fluent Finnish speakers. Salolampi curriculum is designed to provide a fun and appropriately challenging learning experience for learners of all levels. Learn more about language learning here.


During activity times, villagers can choose between different Finnish sports, arts and handicrafts, guided nature walks, and more. Simulations celebrating Finnish holidays and learning new games are also a part of this time. Learn more about sports and activities here.
