Western Finland

Visit Western Finland

Introduction

Off the western coast of Finland an archipelago of islands is emerging from the sea at the rate of a centimetre a year. Tectonic pressure is forcing these islands, located near the Finnish town of Vaasa, up from the beneath earth's surface; a phenomenon that has gained them UNESCO World Heritage renown.

This new land in the Gulf of Bothnia stretches all the way from the Western coast of Finland to the coast of neighbouring Sweden and is the perfect destination for outdoor adventurers, whether you are looking for the perfect hiking spot or something more challenging.

This stretch of coastline is also home to a sight more stereotypical of warmer climes, with white-sand beaches stretching for several miles along the coast. The seaside town of Pori, situated on the Yyteri Cape is one of the most popular beach resorts in Finland and during the summer months many people travel up from Helsinki.


Where to go in Western Finland

Oulu

Oulu was established in 1605 on popular trade routes through the Oulu Delta, which gives onto the cold northern seas and the Gulf of Bothnia. However Oulu's days as a great trade centre have faded and today the town dedicates itself to the arts.
