      Hi all, I'm visiting my son in november at oulu university. Hoping to have a few trips out. Are there any places around oulu where we can see wolves ? I'm not sure at all what wildlife we can see if any. Will it have snowed in november? If so are there husky sledges ? What alse do you recommend?

      Where's the best place to get a bike?

      Oulu Sep 9, 2016 at 9:04 AM

      Hi all,

      I've just started an exchange at OAMK, and I have missed out on getting a bike because I thought I didn't need one. Silly me! Now, is there anywhere around Oulu where I can get a bike for around 40€-50€, second hand if necessary?

      Thanks,
      Ryan

      Ferry reliability in December

      Helsinki Aug 29, 2016 at 5:13 PM

      Hi, would appreciate some advice on the reliability of ferry trips in the Baltic Sea during December. Plan on boarding a ferry from Tallinn to Helsinki for transfer to a St Peter Line later in the day for the overnight trip to Saint Petersburg. We will be vacationing in Russia.

      From my research, I have discovered there are several lines between Tallinn and Helsinki, including Tallink Silja with a 2-hour sailing departing from Tallinn at 10.30am and arriving into Helsinki at 12.30pm.
      St Peter departs Helsinki at 6pm and arrives into Saint Petersburg at 9.30am the following morning.

      My questions are:
      1. How reliable are the ferries in terms of their schedule (departure and arrival times)?
      2. How frequently does the weather impact on ferry schedules during late December?
      3. St Peter Line's website appears to suggest check-in and boarding is from 1-3.30pm despite the ship only leaving at 6pm. Is this correct? I would have liked to spend a bit of time sightseeing in Helsinki.
      4. Where would you go through passport control and what would the procedure be? Upon arrival in Saint Petersburg?
      5. Upon arrival in Saint Petersburg, how long does it take ferry passengers to actually get off the ship?

      Appreciate your advice, comments and experience.
      Thanks!

      Rovaniemi - Christmas attractions & expenses

      Finland Sep 6, 2016 at 10:18 AM

      Hey guys,

      I am considering visiting Rovaniemi this winter to visit the Christmas attractions.

      I have some questions regarding your experiences with this destination:

      1. Is it very cold - bitter cold - in winter or bearable to go outside?
      2. How well can the attractions (Santa Clause Village and cave) be reached by public transport ? (expenses?)
      3. What is the cheapest and recommended offer to do a husky or reindeer sledge ride in the snow? I only saw prices from 200 Euros upwards. Are there any cheaper offers?

      Thank you for your responses and help!

      Kind regards,
      travelthrough

      November things to do?

      Helsinki Aug 27, 2016 at 4:48 PM

      Hello. I will be stopping in Helsinki for a few days before heading to Lapland November 15th. I have tried searching many forums and sites but November seems to be left out. Are most of the attractions open? I understand the days will be shorter, colder, wet and grey? Any suggestions for things to do during this time?

      Aland Island transportation

      by JoAnn94024 Online Now Dec 7, 2006 at 8:03 PM

      Are there car ferries to Aland? I'd like to travel from Sweden to Aland and on to Finland, so I'm trying to find out if I need to leave a rental behind in Sweden, take a ferry to Aland and then on to Finland, and pick-up a new rental in Finland - or - if I can take a car the whole route.

      Thanks!
