Tour de Walpuri

Tour de Walpuri arrives once again in all its true glory to shock, inspire and unite the whole Otaniemi nation and all Aalto-minded people on the 29th of April. During the evening, the entire Teekkari Village will be taken over by the most massive checkpoint tour of the Walpuri era without comparison. So make sure you haven’t mistakenly come up with anything else to do on 29.4.

The tour starts at 8pm after the Yöjäynä kick-off and lasts until late into the night. If you still have some juice left after the tour, you can continue the evening with the Wappu Festival organized by AaltoDJ and Pelmu.

Registration is not needed, just show up. The tour will happen in teams of 4–10 people. Checkpoint maps will be distributed around Otaniemi on the day of the event. The best teams will be rewarded with great prizes at the Declaration of Wappu rowdiness at Smökki on Wappu Eve. The best checkpoint will also receive free use of one of AYY’s one-off saunas for one night in the summer or autumn of the current year.
