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.

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