Soft Landings offers  Culture Shock Finland, a course which provides participants with an all-encompassing information package on Finland as a country, the Finnish society and how it functions, and the Finnish way of life. This course suits persons who have recently moved to Finland, or who are planning or thinking about moving to Finland.

This course gives participants a good foundation on understanding the rules of the Finnish society, sheds light into Finnish behaviour, introduces the Finnish idea of work-life balance and a lot more.

It offers a lot of practical tips for new and challenging situations, for example, how to manage the long and cold winter in Finland.

The course can also include local information and tips for daily  life. This can be discussion on school options for children, tips for finding hobbies, information on interesting local nature spots, or guidance for using public libraries or sports equipment rentals.
