What is in the area?
Varessäikkä Oy’s services currently include a three-plus travel park, which is located near a quiet beach, in the armpit of an exotic archipelago.
In the marina there is a barbecue hut, where you can grill over a campfire, and a beach volleyball court. Outdoor possibilities for running or walking are excellent. A long mountain bike route Joutsenreitti (map.pdf) starts from the beach, where you can experience the joy of riding in the lap of nature.
Services on the beach are offered by Säikkä’s kiosk-café and the legendary Kalastaja’s Grill, where you can get, for example, fresh perch burgers. There are also historical buildings in the area, such as a lighthouse-like tower or pooki, which is an ideal place for bird watching. Several different waterfowl visit Varessäikkä, which are also pleasant to observe in the open fields within walking distance of the travel park. In addition, you can participate in various guided wellness and activity courses or rent equipment.
Even though the marshlands of Varessäikkä attract hunters, berry pickers and hikers, the beach is still peaceful. Here you can listen to the lapping of the waves and the singing of the birds.
Siikajoki’s attractions include three churches built in the 18th century, each of which is less than 45 minutes drive from the park. Golf lovers are served by the 18-hole Raahe golf course, which can be found about 11 kilometers away from the travel park.
Varessäikkä, located in the strait between Hailuoto and the mainland, is an easy day trip from Oulu, which is about 60 kilometers away. On the other hand, you can drive from Raahe to the place in just over half an hour.
