The unique Hailuoto is the largest island in the Gulf of Bothnia, where you can spend a varied summer day enjoying the outdoors, beach life, culture and good food.
The Saaga Travel day trip bus is an easy way to visit Hailuoto. The bus runs between Marjaniemi fishermen’s village, the village center and Ailasto during the day, so you can combine different destinations of the island to your visit.
Example itineraries for a perfect day in Hailuoto:
1. Go first to Marjaniemi fishermen’s village. Explore the beach, take photos, climb the lighthouse, enjoy lunch at one of the restaurants and buy freshly smoked fish from the smokery. Hop on the bus and go the Hailuoto village center. Visit Hailuoto Organic Brewery, enjoy locally produced beer in the atmospheric pub, and buy local handicrafts in Luovon Puoji just next to the brewery.
2. Get off the bus at Ailasto and make a nature excursion to Hyypänmäki, the highest point of Hailuoto (31 m) with interesting history. Enjoy lunch in Ailasto. Take the bus to Marjaniemi and take a swim in the sea before heading back to Oulu.
