Make a self catering apartment or holiday rental in Western Finland your home away from home

Finland has a long western coastline which has a great deal of history, culture and natural beauty to offer. At the south end, the fragmented coastline is an archipelago of islands which give way to the open plains around Ostrobothnian and further north are the rolling fells. Staying in a self catering cabin in Western Finland is a a wonderful way to discover one of the most scenic and unspoilt parts of Northern Europe.

Things to Do in Western Finland

Western Finland ideally lends itself to hiking in the countryside or nature spotting in the unspoilt national parks. In spring and autumn there are many bird migrations which bring birds to Western Finland's nature reserves. Spend time on a remote island or enjoy the culture, browsing the arts and crafts centres and shopping at the small towns. Music festivals are plentiful during the summer months including the Air Guitar World Championships which can be enjoyed from your Western Finland holiday home. Discover the historic wooden houses clustered around each harbour, and feast on the freshly smoked fish which is the staple of the Finnish diet. Smoked salmon, trout and herring are all part of the Nordic diet and are a delicious highlight of any self catering holiday rental. Those looking for more action can drive a real F1 racing car, or enjoy a spin on one of Europe's best karting tracks. Winter sports also provide some adrenalin pumping activities from husky rides and snowmobiling to skiing and ice skating.

Places to Visit Around Western Finland

The Kalla Islands, which were granted autonomy from Swedish rule in the 1770s, have a wonderfully unique history and some beautiful old buildings. Visit Maakalla and Ulkokalla to see the community of fishermen which are based there in small huts. The Tietomaa Science Centre has interactive exhibits and great views over Oulu. Skata is one of the largest continuous areas of wooden houses in Finland in the town of Jakobstad.

                                                          My husband and I really like this neighborhood. It's amazingly quiet and yet so close to great restaurants, parks, and places of interest. Gabriela was great to work with. The communication was polite and efficient. The flat itself was small yet comfortable. My husband and I are both tall, and found the bed to be very comfortable. The furnishings are modern and of nice quality. And the sauna was WONDERFUL! We're very happy with our stay at the Sea Pearl.
