Transporation from Oulu Airport 

The most convenient way to get from the Oulu Airport to the Original Sokos Hotel Arina is by taxi directly from the airport. There is a specific taxi line right outside the airport. This is about a 20-30 minute ride and should cost around 35 euros.


Please dress appropriately and bring waterproof shoes (non-slippery if possible), scarves, hats, gloves, and your warmest winter jacket! (There is definitely some walking involved, in the cold!). Check the forecast before you head out, you may even want to bring your umbrella with you in case it rains during the walking tours.
