Visit Vaasa

Finland is full of modest cities, but Vaasa isn’t one of them. Vaasa is the sunniest city in Finland – both literally and in terms of attitude!

Do you prefer the bustle of a city or the calm of nature? Would you prefer a delicious artisan pastry at a cosy café or a sausage cooked over a campfire out in the middle of nature? In the Vaasa region, you won’t need to choose one or the other, as beautiful nature and urban city life can be easily combined on a single visit. Everything in the Vaasa region is close by, and moving from one sort of atmosphere and experience to another is effortless.
