Getting there & away

The Kruunupyy/Kronoby airport is 22km southeast of Kokkola and served by a regional bus service. Buses meet arriving flights and go to Kokkola (€6) and Jakobstad/Pietarsaari (€5). There are several flights a day to/from Helsinki, run by Finnair subsidiaries.

Regular buses run to/from all coastal towns, especially Vaasa (€21.30, three hours) and Jakobstad (€6.20, 40 minutes). The bus station is one block northwest of the train station.

There is a major train station in Kokkola and all trains using the main western line stop here. The daytime journey from Helsinki (€50.30, seven daily) takes under five hours; there are also several night trains.

If you're driving to or from Jakobstad, a scenic (and quicker) alternative to the main highway is to take road 749, which crosses the island of Luoto.
