Dear camping friends,

It is with great pleasure and deep friendship that I address these words of welcome to the participants of the Nordic Camping Rally to be held at Rauhalahti, Kuopio, from July 5 to July 9 in 2021.

The spirit of camping, caravanning and autocaravaning has never been lost and is increasingly affirmed in today’s society. In addition to relaxing the body and mind, this kind of tourism unites people, humanizes relationships and motivates the feeling of sharing. Join with your friends and family to experience camping, promote their experience and collect the greatest joy of all – feeling good in harmony with nature and live freedom in the company of those we love most.

This has always been the objective of the F.I.C.C. since 1933 and is the history of development and prosperity demanding our knowledge in favour of the Camping, Caravanning and Autocaravaning sector. Every year, regional and international rallies take place during which we have the opportunity to participate and meet with our long-time friends and, also to make new friends, in an informal environment. All the information can be found at

In the meantime there are also national and regional rallies accessible to us campers from all countries. Probably one of the biggest and most interesting ones is “Nordic Camping Rally” that in 2021, due to the F.I.C.C. patronage will be open for all camping enthusiasts with a valid Camping Card International (CCI).

This event is celebrated in the capital of Lakeland, Kuopio, known for its thousands of lakes, joyful and vibrant activities, beautiful nature, rich culture and friendly hospitality. Kuopio region is a unique destination in all seasons and it combines the best of a holiday village, urban life and untouched nature. Here you can have the time of your life!

Each Nordic Camping Rally is unique and is always a good reason to participate. Organised by SF-Caravan it gives you the great opportunity to meet new friends and visit new places and for sure, you will still remember the good moments of such Nordic Camping Rallies.

On behalf of the F.I.C.C. (Fédération Internationale de Camping, Caravanning et Autocaravaning A.I.S.B.L., Brussels) I warmly welcome everyone to the “Nordic Camping Rally” and wish you all a safe, pleasant and relaxing stay in Kuopio.

João Alves Pereira

President of the F.I.C.C. (Fédération Internationale de Camping, Caravanning et Autocaravaning A.I.S.B.L.), Brussels
