Bothnian Coast Road

Almost 900 km of nature, culture and local tourism

Bothnian Coast Road gained the national status as a tourist route in 2010. It is the latest national tourist route in Finland and stretches from Vehmaa in the southern Finland to Tornio, the gateway to Lapland. The coastal road has connected the towns at the river mouths along the west coast since the Middle Ages. In the Late Middle Ages the coastal road along the west coast acted as a route and as a post road, and it extended around the Gulf of Bothnia till the southern parts of Sweden.
