The emblem of the Oulujärvi Hiking AreaFor local people visiting Lake Oulujärvi is like going to the seaside. Beautiful sandy shores and unspoilt islands await boaters, rowers and canoeists in their own proud vessels or rented craft. The best place to start exploring is the island of Manamansalo, which can also be reached by car.
