What are we going to do

Spend a summer day on Ärjänsaari-island, also known as a paradise island. Ärjä's magnificent sandy beaches, beautiful beach collisions and pine-covered landscape surrounded by beautiful Lake Oulujärvi are unforgettable experiences.

A summer day on Ärjänsaari-island is fast by hiking, looking for geocaches, running trails, swimming or just resting on the wonderful sandy beaches enjoying the sun. Sometimes you can visit the sheep of Ärjänsaari, which are on summer work on the island between 14.6-2.8.

Ärjänsaari is part of the Rokua Geopark ridge formation, which extends from Lieksa to Hailuoto.

Return transportation from Ärjänsaari leaves 5 hours after the start time. For example if the departure time is 10 am then the return transport will depart from Ärjä at 3 pm.

The length of the boat trip is about 4 km and is 5 -15 minutes depending on the weather conditions.

The summer café is open every day from 1 June to 15 August 2021 from 11 am to 4 pm. The café serves coffee, donuts, ice cream, soft drinks and sweets. You can also rent game equipment or, for example, a bicycle, kayak, sup-board or rowing boat from the café.
