Fun with the kids in Vaasa

Fun with the kids in Vaasa

Vaasa is the perfect location for a care-free vacation with the kids! Vaasa and the Vaasa region provide fun activities for the whole family throughout the year.

Nature & outdoors

Even the youngest of nature enthusiasts will love the Kvarken Archipelago, which is Finland's only Natural World Heritage Site on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The breathtakingly beautiful route starts from the centre of Vaasa, leading to the Svedjehamn harbour located in Björköby and to the world heritage site through the Replot Bridge, the longest bridge in Finland, and magnificent scenery. Once there, visitors can climb up to see the enchanting sights from the Saltkaret lookout tower.

At the Aava Kerttu domestic animal farm in Södra Vallgrund, animal lovers can spend a relaxing day and enjoy a genuine rural setting, while having a cup of coffee or grooming and looking after the animals. 

Shopping

Our hotel is located right next to Vaasa's busiest shopping centre, the Rewell Center. With their key card, hotel guests receive a 15% discount both from the shops of the Rewell Center and in the Espen shopping centre, located across the market square near the hotel. Those with plenty of shopping energy to spare can also take a day trip to Uumaja with the Wasaline ferries.

Culture
Travel back in time in the ancient village of Stundars, and experience how people lived in a rural village in the 1900s. The village museum features genuine traditional rural buildings, such as a village shop, school, farmhouse and different artisanal workshops. Museums in Vaasa and the city theatre also feature child-friendly plays and exhibits.

Other activities

The Vaasa city centre has a variety of playgrounds. For example, the versatile Laivapuisto, a ship-themed activity park, is always open for those seeking adventure and exercise. The Zip Adventure Park is full of fun and challenges for all ages. In addition to these, Finland's largest activity centre PowerPark is only a 78-kilometre drive away from Vaasa!

The Hietasaari beach is within walking distance from our hotel. In Hietasaari's beautiful surroundings, visitors can try out standup paddleboarding (SUP). If the weather is not suitable for swimming and beach activities, the paradise-like Tropiclandia spa and water park will still have a pleasant atmosphere. Adventure park HopLop and climbing centre Wasa Up are guaranteed to keep you entertained on rainy days as well.

Our hotel reception also has board games and books that can be borrowed. Hotel guests can also borrow our hotel's bicycles, two of which are for children. If you get hungry, our restaurants Rosso and Kokokana have something for the whole family. Bring your family to enjoy Vaasa!
