Six-day inline skating holiday in Finland

Last few years we have skated either in the southern part or in the distant areas of Finland. In 2024 we skate again more in the western, the flatter part of the country.

Skating starts from Saarijärvi, a small town a few tens of kilometers north from Jyväskylä. From there we head to north, leaving the undulating terrain of the Central Finland after a few days. After that we head through the Bothnian flatness towards the sea. On the last day we skate through Larsmo via the 7-Bridge Archipelago Road (7 broars skärgård), finally celebrating our achievement in the night of Kokkola, the capital of the region.

The Ostrobothnia area is well known for its wide, open and flat agricultural areas. On the other hand, while the flatness means that there are less hills, there are also less “pits” for water to dwell. However, we managed to find a route that still allows keeping our traditional swimming breaks!

We have recently skated in Rokua UNESCO Global Geopark and visited the World Heritage listed Verla cardboard mill. To continue our “United Nations theme”, we will enjoy a lunch break in Kaustinen while the town is celebrating the famous Kaustinen Folk Music Festival. Kaustinen fiddle playing and related practices and expressions has been inscribed in the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2021.

Register as soon as possible, preferably already in April! We are soon ordering the unique event shirts (optional), which you cannot obtain anymore if you register too late.
