Oulu is a great place to visit if you want variety on your trip. Located on the West Coast of Finland, Oulu benefits from great travel connections, fantastic cuisine and a large number of attractions. The Tietomaa Science Museum is great for all ages and we also recommend visiting the Oulun Tauidemuseo whilst you’re there. The University of Oulu also has a Botanical Garden which is home to over 4000 different species of plant. In the warmer months you can hop on over to Nallikari beach, where you can go swimming, take part in water sports or relax on the beach or in a nearby café.
