Hyytiälä Research Station offers groups the opportunity to discover world-class research.
It is strongly advisable to bring your own weatherproof gear for field excursions and working outdoors. The station has only a limited choice of items to borrow with no guarantee of fit and condition.
Possibilities for spending spare time include:
The current sauna time slots can be seen on the noticeboards or requested at the office. Both lakeside saunas are available for occupants in summer. The larger one can take 15-20 and the smaller one 4-6 persons at a time on the sauna bench. By taking turns and spending occasional time cooling off ensures a comfortable stay for even a larger group. Private slots can also be reserved.
A limited choice of bicycles is available for rent and can be booked from the station office. In summer, most bikes are reserved for ongoing field courses. Other vehicles are intended for work-related use by the university staff.
Individual meals can be paid immediately at the canteen. Accommodation and other payments will be handled through the office.
