Hi there! Don’t be a stranger

Hi there! Don’t be a stranger

Welcome into the world of Vaasa, the heart of Ostrobothnia in Western Finland. We would like you to make yourself at home and say hello to your new identity: you are going to be a “vaasalainen” as in a person from Vaasa.

Why to settle for a visitor’s role, when you can get an authentic experience just like the locals? Take a sauna, swim in the sea, walk through the ancient forests and archipelago — we offer you a chance to explore all this with a local twist.

Whether you are looking for a relaxing holiday with nature trails and meditation or an adrenaline-filled one with action and sports, Vaasa has a lot to offer. From this site, you will find activities, food and drink favourites and recommendations from those who know Vaasa the best, the locals. Let’s Be Vaasa.
