If there’s one reason to visit Oulu, apart from the spectacular beach and the enticing walkways, it’s the locals. The Finns are a warm and enthusiastic lot and they’ll welcome you into their homes just like they welcome the first speck of summer sunlight. The city, named after the river Oulujoki, lies on Finland’s western banks, opening up into the Gulf of Botnia.
The Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) is a celestial spectacle that you must see as no amount of pictures, words or stories can do justice to it. I accomplished this goal in November 2015 across the Arctic Circle in Finland and Norway where I saw the Northern Lights dance and perform for 3 nights in a row. You can read about the whole trip here.
