Tourism in the landscapes of the Finnish lake district
Located in the heart of the Finnish lake district, the Kuopio region is one of the up-and-coming international travel destinations in Finland. The four seasons, green forests, snowy slopes and clean lakes provide excellent opportunities for the development of various forms of tourism. The whole region is known for its beautiful nature, events and sports. Businesses in the region offer tourists a wide range of experiences from nature to culture.
The goal of tourism in the Kuopio region is to develop the industry in accordance with the principles of sustainable development. The idea is to react to the change in consumer behaviour and the green transition through digitalization. It is also important to promote programme services entrepreneurship and digital services, meet the skill and labour needs of the industry and foster the growth of the industry through networked co-development.
Savonia University of Applied Sciences and Savo Vocational College educate skilled labour for the tourism and catering industry.
