What are we going to do

Our trip is directed to the Paljakka cliffs rising to the east of Lake Oulujärvi and to Akkovaara hill, which are the most beautiful rock formations in Lake Oulujärvi. These places offer eye-catching views of the open Lake Oulujärvi.

During our snowshoe hike we get to enjoy the pure white snow, the fresh air and most of all the stunning winter scenery. Our route runs variably on wide cliffs and in the woods. During the trip we enjoy snacks by bonfire.


About Luonnollisesti Oulujärvi Oy - the Doer

Our common story starts from the Lauttasaari bridge in August 1994. Vesa had the first marathon of his life and Kaisa had the third… Our common life marathon runs through Atlanta to the shores of Lake Oulujärvi.

We founded the company in 2006 because we wanted to offer people the opportunity to get to know the nature of Kainuu and especially Oulujärvi and Ärjänsaari, even if we don't have our own boat.
Our business started as a hobby, but over the years it has grown into a profitable business.

Kaisa and Vesa both have education in the field of tourism and healthcare, and Vesa also has the education of a military officer. Kaisa has 15 years of work experience in the healthcare industry and Vesa has almost 30 years of experience as a field medicine trainer and working in several peacekeeping positions.

We have been operating as a surrogate and support family since 2007.

Dogs are also part of our family. At the moment, our family has three East Siberian laikas, two Bretons and one Finnish pitzt.

We breed dogs under the name of Tyrskyranta kennel.


Participants are required to have moderate physical fitness and warm winter clothing and footwear suitable for exercise.




Hieno kokemus! Oli kiva päästä uimaan saaren molemmille puolille ja sauna oli hyvä. Kiitos paljon!


Toinen kerta Ärjän löylyissä, ja lisää kertoja tulee... Tilava sauna, jossa äärettömän pehmeät löylyt. Ja lankkupolkua pitkin uimaan...


Hieno kohde, maineensa veroinen! Kovasta tuulesta huolimatta taitava kippari kuljetti meidät turvallisesti saarelle ja takaisin. Pieni pettymys oli kun kahvila saarella ei ollut enää auki. Täytyi pärjätä niukoilla eväillä. Hieno patikkapolku saaren ympäri tuli tehtyä ja sai nähdä monenlaisia luonnon ihmeitä.


Asiantuntevaa, mutta leppoista palvelua. Turvallinen venekyyti ja mukava kuski. 😊

Itse Ärjä monipuolisine harrastusmahdollisuuksineen on hieno ja mieleenpainuva paikka. Ilma oli loistava ja seura parasta. ❤️


On 17th of August by 25degrees & sunshine we started out Day trip to Ärjansaari for the first time. We were picked up by boat and got first informations about the Island! Such an interesting history and now free for everyone to enjoy!

Laying on sandy beach, watching the sea like lake Oulunjärvi, bathing in warm water. No words!

After that we went on and walked the forest trails ~6km, wondering the beautiful nature and children combined it with geocaching. 5hrs was perfect time. 5 Stars! We would definitely want to come back someday - thank you for your great service!
