Hiking in Sanginjoki – Sunday 5th October 2014

Hello fellow hikers!


The days are getting shorter and the mosquitoes are a-sleeping, but there’s still time to enjoy the autumn colours. This week we suggest a visit to Sanginjoki which is a little more than half-an-hour’s drive from Oulu.

Date: Sunday 5th October
Departure time: to be confirmed. We could possibly have two pick-up points, depending on who is coming.
Weather: perfect.

Important: Bring good walking shoes, a tasty picnic and a spirit of adventure!

For more information, please visit:

More details to follow!


Hiking trip – Sunday 7 September

Dear ladies,

Ata is organising a hiking trip to Akionlahti for this forthcoming Sunday, 7 September.  The area is known for its bird population and apparently September is a good time to take a look.

The idea is that those interested will meet at the Oulun Kauppahalli at 9:00.  If anyone is planning to attend who is taking their car and willing to offer a ride to others, please let Ata know asap!

It takes approximately 20 minutes to drive there from Oulu and the aim is to be back around 2pm.

Ata advises those attending to wear good walking shoes, bring a packed lunch & water and if you fancy a refreshing dip in the sea, bring your swimsuit too! 😀

For more information, get in touch with Ata!


Pub evenings

Quite often there are at least a few members from the club who like to socialise in the wonderful bars of Oulu.

We try to meet up once a month so if you happen to be free for the next gathering, please come along! 🙂

Watch this space for a planned evening for the end of September…….
