The Oulu region is an easily accessible tourist area, with plenty to see and do for a number of visits. The town provides convenient access to visit or stay, to the southernmost fell highland region of Finland or rare nature areas shaped by the Ice Age. All the destinations in the region are a convenient stop when visiting Oulu and they are great as individual travel destinations. All destinations are easily accessible by your own car or a rental, as well as by local buses.
Oulu is easily accessible by plane even from afar. Oulu Airport is the second busiest in Finland and nearly fifteen flights from Helsinki arrive there on a daily basis. For example Norwegian and Finnair operate at the airport bringing customers safely to Oulu from elsewhere in Finland, neighbouring countries and further away.
For travellers from closer areas, travelling by bus or train is ideal; you can get to Oulu from almost everywhere in Finland in a short period of time. The Oulu region is ideally covered with a rental car, while moving around in Oulu is convenient by bicycle or by local bus.
