The Finnish city of Oulu and its surroundings are one of the most popular and most suitable places in the world to see the northern lights. The spectacular phenomenon is most likely to occur between September and March. You can either enjoy this experience in a classic way alone in the open countryside, or take advantage of one of the numerous regional offers: in a hotel in the outdoor whirlpool, for example, or on the road with an adventure tour through the night. The unforgettable winter experience is completed by the fact that all water surfaces in the region freeze over. Ice skating, ice fishing, a tour with sled dogs or cross-country skiing. As soon as the ice is stable, we can start. In summer, when the ice and snow have melted, the landscape is green and blooming and invites you to go hiking, cycling and water sports. For golf fans, Oulu offers two fully developed 18-hole golf courses, which still offer enough challenges for the experienced golfers, but are also suitable for beginners.
Oulu is a large city in the north of Finland. It is the largest city in Northern Finland, the fifth largest city in Finland and the northernmost major city in the European Union.
