What are we going to do

Come join our Christmas bus tour and get your gifts for Santa's sack! Along the way, you'll learn about the history and traditions of Christmas in Finland, as well as why Jyväskylä is known as the birthplace of Finnish-language Christmas carols and Christmas celebration traditions (in Finnish). We'll make stops at several local shops, factory outlets, and boutiques, making it easy to find gifts for under the Christmas tree and delicious treats for the Christmas table.

Jyväskylä-based Puttipaja has been creating Christmas ambiance with their candles since the 70s. We'll visit their factory store, which is filled with delightful products, perfect for either yourself or as gifts.

Right nearby, in the packing and dispatch area of the old matchstick factory, operates Teeleidi's very own tea factory, which is now opening its doors to us. Christmas teas are among the most popular gifts in Finland, and even though the teas come from all over the world, the family-owned company Teeleidi has its roots firmly in Jyväskylä. At Teeleidi, we'll enjoy a Christmas tea tasting with gingerbread cookies (included in the tour price).

Our next stop will be at Panda's factory outlet to stock up on Christmas delicacies. The confections for the festive table are a must-have for a Finnish Christmas, but Panda is also renowned worldwide for its licorice.

We'll conclude the journey at Toivola Old Courtyard, a charming Christmas courtyard. In addition to providing a Christmas atmosphere and a beautiful setting, Toivola offers Christmas food and drink delicacies, design items, art, and history.
