My Oulu: New map offers winter tips for spending leisure time in Oulu region
Where can I get proper salmon soup? How to find the best selfie locations? Answers to these and many other questions can be found in the new ‘Winter Tips to Oulu’ map.
Newly published ‘Winter Tips to Oulu’ map brings together the activities of the dark and snowy winter season. The map includes outdoor swimming locations and sledding hills, as well as indoor activities for the coldest days, for example.
This year, restaurants have also been added to the map.
“The restaurants that offer salmon soup are listed separately. Those are the ones that people often ask for,” explains Travel Advisor Tarja Ikola.
Whether you are a local or a tourist, you will not run out of activities and sights with ‘Winter Tips to Oulu’ in your hands.
“If you are entertaining visitors, you can get ideas on where to take them and what to do in Oulu,” Ikola tips.

The new map gives you tips for different kinds of trips.
Saaga Travel organises affordable day trips, for example to Iso-Syöte, which are aimed especially at international students. The Pohjola Route offers Christmas routes in different themes, for example, for culture enthusiasts or families with children.
