What are we going to do

Winter swimming in Oulu river in Tuiran uimala. We meet in Tuiran uimala and we warm up half an hour walking and doing some easy physical exercises in the near by park. I´ll give detailed instructions how to swim or dip in the ice cold water. Then we go to dressing rooms and chance to swimsuits. Then I´ll show you step by step how to do it and guide you to swim safely. After swimming we chance clothes in dressing rooms and congratulate ourselves to being brave and tried something we Finnish people call sisu!

About Sirpa - the Doer

I´m an authorized tourist guide and winter swimming instructor. I´d love to show you the meaning of Finnish sisu. Winter swimming is great opportunity to feel Finnish way of life. And the feeling afterwards is awesome.


You need you own swimsuit and towel. Warm winter clothing is recommended.
