In the wild

Kalajoki’s unique arctic maritime environment is the perfect destination for nature lovers.
Would you rather set sail on good old Ansio and head to the unique fishermen’s island of Maakalla? Or how about a paddling trip to the archipelago? You could also try a husky ride the snowy landscapes. Pack your thermos flask and head out for an adventure on your skis or skis boots, try winter fishing on the frozen sea!

If you want to spend time in the forest, head over to the Siiponjoki river trail, wear your most comfortable hiking shoes and bring some snacks, enjoy the calmness surrounding you.

Return to the dunes and go for a run along the duckboards, relish the views and breath deep!

Whether it is on the sea or on the ground, there is much to do in Kalajoki’s breathtaking nature. What will you start with?
