Visitors to the city in winter might be reluctant to join the locals who plunge through holes cut in the frozen river and, but this popular insanity will certainly get your circulation going! There are over 70km of ski trails around Oulu, and even trails out onto the sea. Prefer to keep warm? Then visit the local ice hockey stadium, and see Kärpät play, the team who has won 4 of the last 6 Kanada Malja, the Finnish Ice Hockey Championship.
