Autumn at Kalajoki
EXPERIENCE KALAJOKI IN AUTUMN!
Come and enjoy autumn by the sea in a tourist service centre!
The diverse nature in Kalajoki and the relaxed nature trails offer visitors many opportunities for welcoming the autumn season. Kalajoki is the perfect combination of maritime nature, boreal forests with gently rolling hills, and diverse scenery along the river. As the evenings grow darker, keep your eye on the sky; maybe you will catch a glimpse of the gorgeous northern lights!
Most services at Kalajoki are available all year round, allowing you to focus on the essential during your holiday – enjoying the cosy autumn atmosphere.
ALLOW THE DIVERSE NATURE OF KALAJOKI ENCHANT YOU
The magical Siiponjoki river
The approximately 20-kilometre long Siiponjoki Nature Trail starts from the northern end of the sandy beach and travels through impressive pine forests, rocky areas and wetlands to the shores of Siiponjoki river that twists and turns in the sandy soil. Siiponjoki is a great hiking destination, and part of the routes is also suitable for mountain bikes or fatbikes.
A shorter trip along the hiking path following the river shore is also possible, such as a day trip with the young ones in the family to a campfire at the Pleuna rest area.
Boardwalks along the sandy beach and birdwatching in Vihaslahti
The over two-kilometre long boardwalk over the sandy dunes offers visitors a great beach view. The pathway continues as a gravel path to the Vihas-Keihäslahti nature conservation area. You can either walk or cycle along the path, and it is also accessible by a pram or a wheelchair. Vihaslahti has a birdwatching tower, a sheltered campfire spot and an information board, and a dry toilet. Vihaslahti is a home to many different species of birds, and visitors can spot them feeding and nesting in the area. The beautiful Maristonpakat area is only a stone’s throw away from Vihaslahti, and visitors can admire its esker views by walking along new stairway paths. Rent a fatbike – for an hour, for a day, or even for your whole holiday!
Bike rentals available at Safaritalo and Tapion Tupa.
ADVENTURES IN THE DARK AT ADVENTURE PARK PAKKA
After-dark adventures will start again at Pakka during the autumn holiday weeks! In Adventures in the Dark, the rope courses of Adventure Park Pakka are illuminated with just the adventurers’ headlamps, and the adventure will end by a campfire by the lean-to, where guests can fry sausages or eat their own snacks. The Mega Zipline will also be open after dark. This 330-metre long ‘Night Flight’ after dark from the largest adventure tower in Europe is sure to be an unforgettable experience! Come and experience something truly unique!
