Life at the hotel: Ice hockey season and other important things

The warmth of the summer is only a memory, but we don´t mind! We have great things ahead  for this season as well. 

In the very first of this month we still managed to capture the rays of light and summer sun, when exploring the Huikia adventure park with the hotel staff.

Jenna and Mikko were building an ice hockey studio in the Theme room Routa, when the local well succeeded ice hockey team Oulun Kärpät faced the best teams in Europe in CHL league. The Finnish league continues through the rest of the year, and we are expecting the hockey fans to arrive to the hotel. 

Traditional Turkansaari Autumn Market take place on idyllic Turkansaari island on 8th September. You can hop on a bus in front of the Town Hall and travel to the island. 

Well-being and local handicraft is playing a main role in fair happenings in Oulu this autumn. The popular Tykkää ja tuhulaa ( "Like and spend") - fair offer interesting things for body and mind for the whole weekend, and  Oulun Hyvinvointimessut ( Oulu well-being fair) and Handicraft Fair continues the same theme later in Autumn. We have hand made jewelleries and beautiful cards to sell in the reception as well, made by a local artisan and artist  Emilia Aarnio. What do you think of these beauties

Riitta with her team is building a stand-up evening Ookko Nää Nauranu ( "Have you laught") at the end of this month. The show will take place in Original Sokos hotel Arina conference area in Kauppakeskus Valkea 4th floor. It means the pre-Christmas is here! The season is definately here if you ask our Sales Office team here in Valkea. Why don´t you come to visit us!  We would love to have guests here in the office at Shopping Centre Valkea 4th floor. 

In the Oulu Theater the spectacular Peppi Pitkätossu continues. Peppi Pitkätossu is a super star amongst northern children.  We have exciting things at the hotel for children also, for example the adventure map that Ellu and Vilma created for the hotel kids. You will find the binoculars on 7th floor, and for sure it is exiting to explore the city from upper floors. Roosa from the reception made a nice folder of the must- things to see in our beautiful home town Oulu. We hope you ewill fall in love with our city! 

Our partner gym, Alexander Health Club, was gentle enough to offer tickets to the gym for a special price á 8 €.  You can buy the tickets from the reception.
