Well last time they were and some very unknown swedish gentleman came even second so might be possible that this time official language will be finnish Turku dialect. Some highest scoring bonuses most likely given in sami language.

Done the Finnish Rally in 2015 and 2013.
Book has been in Finnish and English - John Young and at least 5 Swedes has done the Finnish rally so far, no problem with either the general instruction nor each bonus description.
...and no problem to ask if something needs clarification.

Don't miss out on Finland!
This country is made for riding, and stood host for my two best riding experiences in 2016:

SS 1000 Arctic Butt in January

Thank you IBA Finland!

...and 5 days of gravel adventure along the border to Russia in August.

Thank you Jonkko and BR Bikers! http://www.brbikers.com/700-2/tour-in-english/

Two of us actually rode around the Gulf of Bothnia on our way home, using what was left of our knobbies to complete a SS 1000....

Okay, this ranting is obviously not related to the IBA Scandinavian Rally, but the essence of it is that anything is possible in Finland, and the guys there will really step out of their way to make riders from abroad feel welcome.

Don't miss out on Finland!
