North of Scotland Highland Cattle Club Trip to Finland

06 March 2018

ONLY A FEW PLACES LEFT!

Trip to Finland Wednesday 13th September – Sunday 16th September 2018.

We have been invited by the Highland Cattle Club of Finland to tour many of their folds prior to the Finnish Highland Cattle Show in September 2018. This invite came after many of the North Club members hosted a visit from the Finn's last year, they were extremely impressed by the warm welcome they received, by the cattle and by our scenery. So they have decided to reciprocate, Johanna Ratia the past secretary of the Finnish Highland Cattle Society has set up an itinerary around the show.

The cost of the tour in Finland will be approx., £650 which includes the Coach travel to all farm visits & show, Dinner, Bed & Breakfast and some lunches on 13th/14th/15th Sept, farm visits, show and presentation dinner.

There will be one central pick up point in Helsinki for everyone to meet the coach, The tour programme will run from Wednesday 13th September 2018 through to Sunday 16th September (I can forward a full itinerary is you just let me know)

Additional costs will be your flights and any hotels, etc. in Helsinki prior and after the arranged tour.

If you wish to book on the Finland Foray, we of course need to know as soon as possible to ensure that our Finnish tour manager – Johanna has every chance to confirm all the booking on her side.
