THE BEST ROAD TRIP route ON THE WEST COAST
This is our best recommendation for a route in the western part of Finland. Pass by old wooden towns, national parks and make a stop by the many beaches and islands in the Kvarken archipelago. Enjoy the maritime lifestyle and many summer events in the cities and explore various attractions not to mention the delicious food. Stop by at least in Turku, Rauma, Pori and Vaasa.
Along Aura river lies the culinary hub of Turku
In southwest Finland, make Turku one of your stop to enjoy the summer in this historic interesting city along the Aura river. Stroll around in the idyllic wooden house area of Port Arthur and pay a visit to historical sites along the river or jump on a boat tour.
In Turku you will be absolutely delighted by excellent food, from budget to fine dining. Along the Aura River there’s plenty of eateries to choose from. You can also enjoy the river views from a boat tour while indulging in good food. Turku is also the gateway to the beautiful archipelago. If you are tired of hiking or driving, the Archipelago Trail fulfill every cyclist’s dream of a 250-kilometre route.
Stay at any of our three Scandic hotels, all of which are well located in the center of Turku.
Be enchanted by the atmosphere in the old town of Rauma
Let your journey continue from Turku to Rauma, which is the third oldest city in Finland. Rauma's old district is a legendary attraction named Old Rauma. It’s worth a visit by foot as the beautifully decorated wooden houses will amaze you. The unique Old Rauma is an excellent example of an old Nordic wooden town and is selected for UNESCO World Heritage sites. Scandic Rauma is located next to the historic Old Rauma.
Beach life in Pori
Pori is only about a 40-minute drive from Rauma. When in Pori you must pay a visit to one of the most beautiful beaches in Finland named Yyeteri which is also the name of the region. Enjoy this six kilometer long sandy beach, an adventure for the whole family. Yyteri also has a recreation area with barbecue facilities and various walking trails near the beach.
Our modern Scandic Pori is located in the city center.
