Steamship S/S Kouta

Steamship cruise on Lake Oulujärvi

Experience the Lake Oulujärvi landscape on an authentic steamship cruise. You can arrange your own charter cruise or take part in one of our scenic cruises open for all, departing from Kajaani.

Can you hear the steam whistle calling?

The ropes are let loose as the white-sided steamship slides across River Kajaaninjoki with its prow towards Lake Oulujärvi. The 97-year-old steam engine under the deck, heated with care, chugs to a steady rhythm and moves the craft almost silently. On River Kajaaninjoki, we pass by the landscape that inspired Lönnrot and Leino and soon one of the biggest lakes in Finland opens up ahead of us. Steep sandy banks shimmer in the summer sun. This is the authentic steamship atmosphere!
