This year’s Freshman Adventure is the first to feature a mobile app that collects all the information the adventurers need into one place. The app includes all checkpoints in the Adventure sorted by area, checkpoint descriptions, a map, a schedule and the rules of the Freshman Adventure.

We recommend you to consider which checkpoints you plan to visit in advance. You can also use the app to mark checkpoints as favourites on each checkpoint’s own page as well as mark them as completed during the event. The mobile app can be downloaded from the App Store and the Play Store under the name ‘Fuksiseikkailu’.


You will get an envelope containing instructions for adventurers and wristbands from the registration desk. The instructions for adventurers include your team’s starting checkpoint and team number.

It is important to hold onto your team number throughout the event, as your points at checkpoints are awarded based on it.

Participate in the best team costume contest by having your team’s photo taken at the photo wall at Kaivopiha! Academic Work and Akava will be among those present at the start! All team members do not need to be present at the registration at Kaivopiha.


The checkpoints are open from 4 pm to 8 pm. You will find the checkpoint descriptions, their addresses and a map of all checkpoint areas in the Fuksiseikkailu mobile app.
The teams tell the checkpoint hosts their own team number at each checkpoint. The checkpoint hosts award points electronically, which means that teams do not need to mark down their own points. Each checkpoint is scored on a scale from 1 to 5. Scoring is influenced by team spirit and completing the tasks as a group.
The Freshman Adventure overall badges can be acquired at obligatory HYY checkpoints.


1.    Teams must complete at least five checkpoints.
2.    Teams have been given an obligatory starting checkpoint, told to the team at the Kaivopiha start.
3.    Teams must complete at least one of the three HYY checkpoints.
The HYY checkpoints are 1, 44 and 90.
4.    Teams must complete checkpoints in at least three different checkpoint areas.

Participate in the contest by having your team’s photo taken at the photo wall at Kaivopiha between 2 pm and 5 pm on the day of the event. Photos will be published on HYY’s Facebook page and the team to receive the most likes by noon on 30 September wins the public vote.

Avoid the rush and see the adventure unfold

Information on rushes is distributed in real time through the news of the Freshman Adventure’s mobile app. Keep your eye on the mobile app’s news to avoid queueing!
Around 3,000 students are participating in the event. This means that queues may form both in registration and at checkpoints. Please arrive at the registration early and be patient!


Accessible checkpoints can be found through the Freshman Adventure’s mobile app. Do not hesitate to contact us if your starting checkpoint needs to be accessible or if you need help with accessibility issues.

Videos and photography

A video- and photographer is present at the event. If you do not want to be seen in pictures, please inform the photographer directly.
