If you want to observe world-class education practices in Helsinki, Finland, but you want to book your own accommodations and meals, this is the option for you. This covers three days of school visits, as well as a 2-hour orientation to the Finnish education system and observation debrief – all lead by locals in Helsinki.

Join other Traveling Teachers for the personal and professional development opportunity of a lifetime.


Join teachers from across the globe to observe world-leading practices in education. You’ll observe Finnish classrooms in action while networking with Finnish educators.

When you’re not learning from your peers, you’ll be exploring this beautiful and historic city with other teachers. You can meander through a sea fortress from the 1700s, join in on a “coffee crawl,” and enjoy a refreshing sauna. Or, if you choose, you can spend a cozy day in experiencing “kalsarikannit.”

We know that relaxing and recharging are just as important as learning, so you’ll have plenty of time to explore and/or rest.

This is not your average PD. You get to choose your own personal and professional development.
