Wednesday Post Conference Technical Excursion

This year we will be providing a post conference excursion to a working dynamite and explosives factory in a beautiful seaside village of Hanko, 130 km west from Helsinki. Here we will take a 2-hour tour explaining the manufacturing process thoroughly followed by lunch. The excursion returns through the small mining town of Lohja, built around the oldest operating mine in Finland where we will visit an underground mining museum – Tytyri Mine Experience.
