Roadtrip - Vaasa for the adventurer

The adventurer gathers new experiences from the destinations along roadtrip 4. You might learn something new about yourself deep in the nature of the archipelago or whilst discovering new flavors. Anyhow, the best memories this summer are made along this route, that is, if you are ready to step out of your comfort zone.

1. Stay comfortably within the city center

The hotels in the city center are located close to all of the services the town has to offer. Explore and enjoy the city and the sea by foot or see what the rest of the region has to offer. The car is easy to arrive with and park at the hotels, seeing, as parking spaces are often located close to the hotels.

5. Archipelago adventure

On an archipelago adventure time is of no relevance and rushing ruins the Zen-moment, which is achieved here, easier than anywhere else. An easy way to do this is to hop on an archipelago cruise with m/s Corina, which departs from the world heritage gate, at the Replot Bridge.

7. Söderfjärden /  Meteoria

Explore the flatland created by a meteor some 520 million years ago, pay a visit to the Meteoria and climb up in the watchtower. And make sure to come back in the fall when Söderfjärden turns into a lay-by for cranes, before their long journey south.

8. Bergö

Bergö is a gem in Kvarken. Navigate your boat crew to the guest-harbor 62°58’30”N, 021°10’21”E or arrive with the ferry. Although Bergö is located only 10 minutes away from the mainland by ferry it feels like a completely different world.
