Energetic and youthful. Bursting with stunning landscapes and pristine wilderness. The Oulu region is the gateway to experiencing Finnish Lapland and arctic nature.
The city of Oulu, located on the Bay of Bothnia, is the largest city in northern Finland; not to mention the most northerly European city. This is where a modern business and tourism city meets northern peace and tranquillity.
The city centre is actually spread across several islands. Getting around is easy however, as the Finnish natives have built elegant bridges and cycleways to help visitors and natives get to where they need to go. The kauppatori (market square) is definitely worth a visit. Especially when the clouds manage to disappear and the sun fills the square with its gentle warming rays.
The Radisson Blu Hotel, Oulu is perfectly located in the city centre yet the great outdoors is still at your fingertips. The sea and lake are only few steps away from the main door. You can taste the delicacies of the north in our restaurant and afterwards relax in a Finnish sauna.
When you really want to lose yourself in nature, then Syöte - Finland's southernmost fell region – is your perfect oasis. This area is particularly popular with families because of its variety of activities. Whether you want to relax and absorb the absolute silence and peace of nature, take in jaw-dropping natural vistas, or feel a rush of adrenaline as you slide down powdery slopes – Syöte has it all. Being just 140 kilometers from Oulu, there’s really no reason you shouldn’t go.
So take a long weekend. Get wild & free in the Oulu region! We promise you won’t regret it.
