Mid-Conference Excursions

Mid-Excursions 1, 2 and 6 are fully booked.

On Wednesday 6th August all SER2014 Conference participants will head to mid-conference excursions. The visiting points are situated at 20–120 km distance from Oulu and they include both restoration targets and local nature specialties, such as the globally unique coastal land uplift region (pristine ‘baby forests’ and ‘baby peatlands’) with its migratory bird resting area. A refreshing experience is the walking excursion at the Oulu river delta in central Oulu, which combines ecological and cultural aspects of the City of Oulu.

Detailed descriptions of excursion alternatives can be seen in the links below. Lunch or lunch packages will be provided for the participants at each excursion.

Mid-Conference excursion shuttle buses take off at the same place as the daily Conference Shuttle buses, in front of the Market Hall at Rantakatu street (see the photo below). Mid-excursions 1, 5 and 6 start at 8:30 am and mid-excursions 2, 3, 4 and 7 at 9:00 am and will be back in the afternoon. Walking to the Market Hall does not take more than 5 minutes from any of the hotels, and return will be driven via hotels if needed.

Please be at the Market place 15 min before the take-off. The buses can’t wait, and there is usually no extra space in other excursion buses.
