Summer in Helsinki
July 2021

The Travel Group is organising a summer visit to Helsinki in 2020.  The plan is to provide an informal event – one with an umbrella itinerary covering this very photogenic city and its islands , surrounding locations as well as the historic centre of Tallinn in neighbouring Estonia.  Participants will make their own travel and accommodation arrangements and join together under an umbrella of events according to their interests.  They can choose to spend as many or as few days engaged in the trip as they wish, and can mix and match their choices of following the itinerary or enjoying their own self-led travel/exploration.  The aim is to provide a framework of activities that enable like-minded enthusiasts of travel photography to meet together and share photographic experiences.
