Unspoilt nature, peaceful countryside, attractive old wooden houses, the buzz of the city and many exciting events make a perfect setting for a great visit. With so many things to do and choose from, the region is perfect for families, groups, singles and couples. Our positive attitude to life is infectious and you'll soon be sharing it with us.
The Ostrobothnian coast is where the vast plains and the sea, tradition and new innovation, Finnish and Swedish language and culture interface.
Ostrobothnia is the place to enjoy traditional dishes or sample new taste experiences, expertly prepared from fresh local produce, seafood and forest berries.
You can choose from a wide range of accommodation from spa hotels to cottages on the sea shore.
Experience the local fauna and marine life or visit one of the many popular festivals and markets. Enjoy the easy way of living in Finland's first Cittaslow-town Kristinestad (Kristiinankaupunki). The coastal strip comprises an unrivalled archipelago shaped by continual land upheaval. Board one of the archipelago cruise ships to discover the UNESCO World Natural Heritage site. Fill your lungs with fresh air and listen to the gentle splashing of the waves.
Culture thrives in Ostrobothnia. There are many art exhibitions, offering a glimpse of the extraordinary to the visitor, not forgetting the superb music events. During the summer there are many outdoor theatre performances to enjoy.
Handicrafts of high quality are a point of honour to us. Specialists with that certain skill are on hand in numerous small workshops, metal smithies, weaving shops, carpenters’ shops and potteries.
The many tour services, hiking trails, nature paths, good roads, bridges and ferries offer an easy and convenient way of getting to know the Ostrobothnian cultural landscape.
Thanks to the lively archipelago and countryside, services and accommodation are close at hand.
You will always feel welcome here!
