Oulu City Hall is the seat for the municipal government of the City of Oulu, Finland.

The neo-renaissance style city hall was designed by a Swedish architect Johan Erik Stenberg as the restaurant and hotel Seurahuone in 1885. The third floor was added and other major changes made in 1920 according to plans of architect Oiva Kallio. Some of the changes were reversed during the renovation in 1978–1982, for example the doors were restored to their original location.[2]

The city council has assembled in the city hall since 21 December 1920 and the municipal government since 7 January 1931.

ADVENTURE INTO THE WILDERNESS

GUIDED TOUR ON  A DOUBLE-DECKER BUS

Welcome to the wilderness of the Polar night! The group will assemble at Hotel Lasaretti. After guests are equipped with warm overalls (if needed), a double-decker Snow Express bus will pick up the group, and the adventure can begin!

 

The guided tour includes a trip to the wilderness chasing the famous Northern Lights: let’s hope to catch them! There’s much more to this trip, however; you will get to experience the natural surroundings in Finland during the darkest times of the year. Only candle light will be used, no electric lights, like in the old days. The only other source of light will be the stars in the sky—and perhaps the famous Northern Lights! The bus ride will cover the Oulu area, where you can take in the wilderness while chasing the Northern Lights. You can enjoy the landscape as well as listen to stories about the Northern Lights and life in the wilderness.

 

Come and experience the unforgettable silence and darkness of the wilderness, without electric lights to disturb the experience. We will also see the river running freely in Koiteli, so you can enjoy the sound of the flowing water amidst the breath-taking scenery.

 

The lower deck of the bus is heated, and when we stop, you can take photos from upper deck, which provides better access to the outdoors. Alternatively, you can hop off the bus and dive into the spectacular show of nature. During the trip, guests will be provided warm drinks and sausages grilled over an open camp fire.

 

Join us for an adventure in the Finnish wilderness!

 

If you wish to take part in the guided tour, please preregister for it in conjunction with the conference registration by September 10, 2018.

 

The price per person is 160€, inclusive of 24% VAT.
The minimum group size per tour is 15, and the maximum size is 50.

 

 

CANCELLATION POLICY - GUIDED TOUR

 

The registration is binding. Notifications, amendments, and cancellations must be made in writing via an e-mail sent to Konffa Ltd. (eseiw@konffa.fi). The fee for any amendment is 10€ per registration. Should there be any mistakes in the given registration details, the correction fee will be €10.

The organizers recommend all-inclusive travel insurance. The tour organizer Oulun Safarit has liability insurance. Note that the organizer reserves the right to cancel the post tour if the number of participants is below 15 per tour; additionally, the organizer reserves the right to change prices.
