Suunto Summit 2017 Recap

8 maj 2017

At the Suunto Summit this past weekend we hosted an inspiring group of 16 Suunto fans from around the world for a weekend of sharing experiences – and some muddy Finnish trails.

Passion for sport

The post-race sauna and making new friends with some reindeer might have helped but really we came to realise our connection is rooted in our shared passion for sport and the outdoors.

We are grateful to have shared the experience with such an incredible group, and agree with one of our participants, Pelle Nyberg, from Sweden, that the "Suunto Summit captures the essence of the community."
