Sightseeing of Oulu on Mountain Bikes
Enjoy the most beautiful sights of Oulu on a mountain bike.
The sightseeing experience on mountain bikes begins at the famous Toripoliisi-statue of Oulu Market Square from where we’ll walk to the nearby starting point of the actual cycling.
From there the tour is directed through the historical Pikisaari island, which is a remnant of the Old Town of Oulu, and two the beautiful seaside and park scenery of Hietasaari. In Nallikari we’ll also drive across the beach and stop by the Nallikari lighthouse. During its latter part the route weaves through the gorgeous Hupisaaret park area concluding back at the Market Square. The route follows bicycle routes as well as off-road trails.
During this 2,5-hour tour you get to experience Oulu at its most beautiful. This trip is a great experience for travellers but also for the people of Oulu.
During thawed ground (from spring to fall) the trip can be executed with fatbikes and more narrow-tired mountain bikes. During winter the trip is only executed with fatbikes.
Fatbike is a bicycle with oversized tires. Their low tire pressure enables their use on soft and unstable terrains such as snow and sand. The trip is suited for anyone with basic fitness.
