Harri and his team did a marvelous job organising this week. A great setting in Lapland to learn snowkiting, a relaxed crowd, professional instructors (Lorenzo rocks!), good hotel and food (many thanks to 'French Chef'). They got me to the level of independent snowkiter within the week, and most importantly made it one of my most fun experiences of the past years! A BIG THANK YOU!

Oulu and the surrounding area is a fabulous place for cycling - there are so many bike trails, many of them lined with fragrant wildflowers in June, the terrain is very flat, and it is difficult to get lost, due to all of the bodies of water than can be used as landmarks. I rented a bike from Lappis and it was great - had fatter tires than my bike at home and no gears, but I was glad in the end of the fat tires because it was fun to take some of the unpaved bike trails in the woods and near the beaches, and I didn't miss the gears at all. I was in Oulu for a week while my husband attended a conference, and I used the bike every day. My last day I decided to bike with my husband to some lakes north of the city, plugged the name of the lake into Google Maps on my phone, and it took us only on bike paths to our destination - we never once had to ride on the road! Harri at Lappis gave us great service!

Harri, the owner, is the most wonderful guy on the planet. He´ll help you with everything, if you´re a noobie or a pro. He will introduce you with all the local surfers and it´s very easy to try kite surfing in this kind of athmosphere.
Soita Lappikselle, jos haluat tehdä mitä vain jännittävää Oulussa, heiltä kyllä löytyy tarpeelliset harrastusvälineet hommaan kuin hommaan! Leijat, SUPit, fatbiket, wakeboardit...no, ihan mitä vaan!

During an 8 day stay in Akaslompolo I went snowkiting 3 times with Harri. He took me to great places, equipped me with good material and all the support I needed. Wonderful experience that I wish to repeat some day!

Have rented SUP boards from the "kiikeli" area near the market place a few times and each time the SUP trips have been very good. The area nearby is exceptional in terms of scenery, archipelago and beginner friendliness for SUP boarding and the location is great at the city center. You can also rent bikes there.

Lappis also organizes top notch kiteboarding courses in the summer and snowkiting courses in the wintertime. Harri who runs the show is a passionate and professional teacher with many years of experience in boardsports!

We joined Pallas Kiteweek and it has been absolutely fantastic! Harri and his Team did an awesome Job. Teaching lessons for the beginners, spotguiding tips&hints for the more experienced kiters, acting as weather prophets, renting out hardware and of course much more :-).
But it‘s not all about kiting what makes this week so special: Very nice location, meeting new people, evening activities, nice food,...
Highly Recommended!
Thank you very much!

Oulu is a fabulous place for the recreational cyclist. I was there on the Midsomer weekend and Harri went out of his way to help me out with a bike. Great service, highly recommended.

I am an exchange student in Oulu and luckily my friends and me were able to get the last SUP Tour (2h) in summer! We were provided with everything we needed (even little bags for your mobile phone so you can take pictures safely) and we have had a very nice instructor who paddeled along with us and was nice to chat with! Also, we saw a beautiful sunset while paddling! It was fun and beautiful and I can only recommend it!
