Oulussa riittää tekemistä talvellakin! Kuvaoikeudet: Visit Oulu/Mark Harris 2007

There are over a hundred kilometres of cross-country skiing tracks in Oulu, and a big part of them are lighted. To enjoy some openness, head for the ski tracks or skating courses on the frozen sea. While you’re out on the sea, explore the islands in the archipelago.  The adventurous can try winter cycling, kiteboarding, and you can also explore both land and sea from a snowmobile.

Skiing centre Ruskotunturi is located right next to downtown Oulu, conveniently a bus trip away. There are six skiing slopes, parks for tricks and a kids’ area. In an hour-and-a-half drive from Oulu, one can reach the southernmost fell in Finland and its skiing centre Iso-Syöte.
