The Gulf of Bothnia seaside route

- Almost 900 km of nature, culture and small scale tourism.

 

The Gulf of Bothnia seaside route, which begins in south-western Finland in Vehmaa and ends in Tornio in northern Finland, received its status as a scenery route in 2010. Thus it’s the newest nationwide scenery route.

 

The seaside route has connected cities along the coast close to the estuaries since the Middle Ages. During the later years of the Middle Ages the route was used as a postal route and for transport. The route continued all the way round the Gulf of Bothnia and all the way down to the southern parts of Sweden.

 

The historical route geographically links many other scenery routes such as the Northern lights route, The Blue road and the Archipelago trail. The seaside route offers an alternative to the faster, straighter less interesting highways. Along the route there are numerous sites and cities worth a visit, many with great historical importance.

 

The route combines proximity to the sea and great experiences of nature, culture, tales and happenings. Make plans, find your way and enjoy your trip along the wonderful westcoast of Finland.
