What & Why

The relocation process of bringing new talent to Finland often ends once people are settled in their new city with their apartment and all practicalities.

But this is where it really starts: building a home for new people in Finland only begins with getting acquainted with the culture, building friendships and getting to know the new place. Facilitating things that increase life quality and in increased company loyalty and more efficient employment.

Beyond Relocation is a tailored day program for new people in the city that came for work, but are set to stay long-term.

 
 

The program

Beyond Relocation aims to show a local side of Helsinki to those new to the city. We show how the city works, what’s where and what’s what. From a walking tour of Helsinki to put things in perspective and context, to an introduction of Finnish food both in the grocery stores and markets and restaurants, to true local feels during an authentic sauna experience.

 

WELCOME TO FINLAND - DAY

GUIDED WALK OF HELSINKI

Learn only what you need to know, get a feeling for the city and get oriented - in a personal and dynamic way. Put Helsinki in the context for what people need to find their way around their new home. From main sights and landmarks to local hidden treasures and little life hacks for living in HEL.
 

FINNISH FOOD 101

Lunch-as-you-try: taste your way through the best of local delicacies in market halls and restaurant in place of a stiff sit-down lunch. Experiencing different sides of Finnish food in different settings to show all the sides of it with something for everybody.

SUPERMARKET TOUR

Introduction to grocery shopping in Finland: confused by 27 different types of milk? What’s the black stuff you find everywhere around Easter and what’s the deal with the Christmas casseroles? What to look out for and what to find where, is often a struggle for people from other cultures. Let’s fix this.
 

AUTHENTIC SAUNA EXPERIENCE

Fin(n)ishing the day steamy with the locals in the sauna! Learn what it’s about, why it’s healthy, social and such a distinct piece of culture. Embrace it first hand. Avanto anyone?


I’ve moved to a few cities before and I think the best way to enjoy the city is to fall in love with it. Kathrin radiates this strong affection for Helsinki and Finland in general that it was extremely contagious. I felt more confident that I made the right choice in moving to Helsinki after spending the day with Kathrin. I would 110% recommend this tour to anyone relocating to Helsinki. The most important thing Kathrin did was offer a perspective of a local rather than as a tour guide. She was an absolute delight!
