The drawn emblem of Oulujärvi. Inside the oval emblem is a rowing boat, waves, clouds and the sun depicted. The text Oulujärvi hikina area in Finnish and Swedish wraps around the outer edge of the emblem.
For 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.

Suitability: Excellent for families with children. There are no special accessible services.
