You need to go somewhere but there is no organised trip, or you didn't get a ticket? You can always just organise it yourself. VisitOulu has great tips on destinations. In Finland we also have this thing called Everymans rights which is good to know when enjoying nature and landscapes. And don't forget about safety! Check your insurances. Outdoor people should also check out university scouts club SOOPA, they arrange group hikes in the Nordics and beyond :) Ystävällinen Kaunohiihtoseura (Friendly Skiing Club) is a student club organising downhill skiing trips, contact them by e-mail at ykhs (at) ykhs.fi or join their Facebook group
