White bridges / Puentes blancos / Ponts blancs / Pontes brancas

In English:

White bridges of Hupisaaret.

Hupisaaret, freely translated means “Fun Islands”, is a recreation area in the center of Oulu, consisting of many islands, which connect to each other by white bridges. Between these islands, there are small brooks and waterways. The place is ideal for walking and biking or just enjoy life.

Hupisaaret offer for kids a playground and for adults open-air summer theater, Northern Ostrobothnia Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, city gardens, greenhouses, arboretum and Finland’s longest fishway.

Because there is a hydroelectric power-plant of Merikoski next to Hupisaaret, fishway is important for fishes, which come from the sea and continue their journey swimming upstream in the river Oulujoki.

To fast reach Hupisaaret from Helsinki? By air 1 hour, by rail about 6 hours, by bus 8 hours and by car 7 hours.

In my post, I show mainly white bridges of Hupisaaret, some flowers, fishway and water jets of Merikoski. Welcome to walk with us thru my photos.

En español:

Puentes blancos de Hupisaaret.

Hupisaaret, traducidos libremente “Islas Divertidas”, es una zona de recreo en el centro de Oulu, que consta de muchas islas y que se conectan entre sí por puentes blancos. Entre estas islas, hay pequeños arroyos y cursos de agua. El lugar es ideal para caminar y andar en bicicleta o simplemente disfrutar de la vida.

Hupisaaret oferta para los niños un parque infantil y para los adultos el teatro al aire libre de verano, el museo de Ostrobotnia del Norte, el Museo de Bellas Artes, jardines de la ciudad, invernaderos, un jardín con árboles y un paso de peces ces más largo de Finlandia.

Debido a que hay una planta de energía hidroeléctrica de Merikoski junto a Hupisaaret, la paso de peces es importante para los peces, que vienen del mar y continúan su viaje nadar contra la corriente en el río Oulujoki.

¿Cómo rápidamente para llegar a Hupisaaret desde Helsinki? Por aire 1 hora, por ferrocarril cerca de 6 horas, 8 horas en autobús y en carro 7 horas.

En mi post, vos muestro principalmente puentes blancos de Hupisaaret, algunas flores, la escala para peces y chorros de agua de ¡Bienvenido! a caminar con nosotros a través de mis fotos.

En francais:

Ponts Blanc de Hupisaaret.

Hupisaaret, traduit librement “îles de joie” est une zone de loisirs dans le centre d’Oulu, qui se compose de nombreuses îles et qui sont reliées entre elles par des ponts blancs. Parmi ces îles, il y a des petits ruisseaux et cours d’eau. L’endroit est idéal pour la marche et le vélo ou tout simplement pour profiter de la vie.

Hupisaaret offre pour les enfants une aire de jeux et pour les adultes le théâtre d’été en plein air, le musée Ostrobotnie du Nord, le Musée des Beaux-Arts, les jardins de la ville, des serres, arboterum et une passe à poissons la plus longue en Finlande.

Parce qu’il y a une centrale hydroélectrique de Merikoski à côté de Hupisaaret, c’est important pour la passe à poissons de poissons qui viennent de la mer et continuer leur voyage à nager contre le courant dans la rivière Oulujoki.

Combien de temps pour atteindre Hupisaaret de Helsinki? 1 heure par air, en train environ 6 heures, 8 heures en bus et en voiture 7 heures.

Dans mon post, je vous montre principalement les ponts blancs Hupisaaret, quelques fleurs, la passe migratoire de poissons et les jets d’eau. Bienvenue avec nous à promener à travers mes photos!

Em português:

Pontes brancas de Hupisaaret.

Hupisaaret, traduzido livremente significa “Ilhas de divertimento”, é uma área de lazer no centro de Oulu, que consiste em muitas ilhas, que se conectam entre si por pontes brancas. Entre essas ilhas, há pequenos ribeiros e cursos de água. O lugar é ideal para caminhadas e ciclismo ou apenas aproveitar a vida.

Hupisaaret oferta para as crianças um parque infantil e para adultos teatro ao ar livre de verão, o museu setentrional de Ostrobothnia, Museu de Belas Artes, jardins da cidade, estufas, arboreto e um pasagem para peixes mais longo da Finlândia.

Porque há um poder-usina hidrelétrica de Merikoski ao lado Hupisaaret, o passagem para peixes é importante para os peixes, que vêm do mar e continuam a sua viagem para nadar contra a corrente no rio Oulujoki.

Como rapidamente para chegar ao Hupisaaret de Helsínquia? Por via aérea 1 hora, de trem cerca de 6 horas, de ônibus 8 horas e de carro 7 horas.

No meu post, eu mostro pra vos principalmente pontes brancas de Hupisaaret, algumas flores, passagem para peixes e jactos de água de Merikoski. Bem-vindo a caminhar conosco através de minhas fotos.

    • Hello Little Miss Traveller.

      We love Oulu. It is in the midway of Finland and this makes that we can drive in one day up to the northernmost places. Oulu has beautiful Arctic beach, which is beautiful even in winter. Winter biking is very popular in Oulu. Thank You commenting.

      P.S. If You will visit the Arctice Circle and travelling by train to Rovaniemi, the wave to me quite soon the train leaves Oulu, there is our second home. .)

      Have a nice day!

  16. Very enjoyable and relaxing atmosphere! It’s the right mixture of green and water and in combination with the excellent looking white bridges, the fountains in the water as well as the colourful flowers which makes the Hupisaaret Park a place to go and surely to stay! I really would love to see the greenhouses as well as the arboretum, too during such a stay.
    I’m fascinated by the fishway that you showed on your photos! Great thing to help the salmons to get to “their” river Oulojoki! Here in Hamburg we just got a new (additional) fishway for eels, sticklebacks and sea trouts to secure a passage from the river Elbe to the Alster. It’s only a small one with a total length of 42 meters.
    Matti, I read that you are planning to go to Oulu now for the coming six weeks. Enjoy your stay and hopefully they are right as far as the long-term weather forecast is concerned! – Michèle

  31. It was very calming just looking at these gorgeous photos from your home country. The vegetation (both in the trees but also in the undergrowth such as ferns) does have a lot of similarity with what is here in Canada. It would be a beautiful spot for a stroll.
