Nallikarin Aalto

The construction of Nallikari’s new accommodations and business premises starts with a foundation-laying ceremony


The construction of Nallikari Seaside Oy’s new accommodations and business premises began with a ceremonial laying of the foundations in Nallikari on Monday, the 3rd of October. Mika Lintilä, the Minister of Economic Affairs, attended the event to give his well-wishes, among others.

 In his speech, the Minister stressed that the demand for tourism services is changing. He called for the development of services and facilities that meet the needs and requirements of tourists. Regarding the Nallikari construction project, Minister Lintilä said that according to his own background knowledge, the construction that is now starting meets all of those requirements. Once completed, the building will enable more diversified year-round tourist services in an important northern tourist area for Finland.

Minister Lintilä also added that the Hartaanselkä housing fair next to Nallikari in 2025 and the Oulu Capital of Culture year in 2026 will both contribute significantly to the growth of tourism in Oulu. The city must also be able to make good use of these factors.

The event showcased faith in growing tourism in Oulu

 In his speech, Yrjötapio Kivisaari, CEO of Oulun Matkailu Oy, said that tourism is a significant growth target for Oulu in the coming years. Growth is sought, above all, in the international market as well as year-round tourism. Nallikari’s new investments support these growth targets. They will bring an important addition to the accommodation capacity of the City of Oulu and will offer year-round experiences for tourists.

During her long career, Sirpa Walter, CEO of Nallikari Seaside Oy, has seen what an important place Nallikari is for both locals and tourists. Walter was delighted to be able to launch the long-awaited Nallikari construction project. She also believes that the region will see several mutually complementary projects.

Introducing the new Nallikari pastry

 The event treated guests to a new Nallikari pastry that embodies the combination of the sun, the sea, and the sand. The pastry was created by Sampo Kotajärvi, a pastry chef from Oulu who works in Nallikari. The guests also received a loaf of archipelago bread that exudes the spirit of Nallikari, which was also created by Kotajärvi.
