Looking for accommodation extraordinaire?
Looking for accommodation in the Seinäjoki region? We travelled to South Ostrobothnia for you to find the prettiest places to stay. We came up with these seven beautiful accommodation options, so please, sit back and travel around South Ostrobothnia with us.
Villa Ursus, Ähtäri
Have you ever thought what it would be like to spend a night with bears as neighbours? Neither have we, but we got to try, and loved it! Ähtäri Zoo launched their unique cabin, where you can spend a night watching bears throughout the light summer night. The cabin has a god bed for 2 and a toilet, plus facilities for prepping some breakfast, coffee and porridge, actually, can you spot what the bears are having? Porridge? That’s right.
A night’s stay includes a stay in your private mini cabin plus all kinds of goods: Ähtäri Zoo, Farm and Panda House tickets, spa tickets for both evening and morning, and a delicious breakfast in Hotel Mesikämmen’s restaurant.
We recommend you to stay another night, as there is so much to see, so maybe treat yourself with this and book another night in the hotel?
Siirilän tila (Siirilä Estate), Seinäjoki
A stay at Siirilä Estate is a dream come true for all the horse girls and boys out there – and to be honest, adults need holidays and horses every once in a while. Siirilä Estate is an old Ostrobothnian house, and from the second floor you can see a silhouette of Seinäjoki. You’re only a few kilometres away from the Seinäjoki city centre, but the countryside vibe couldn’t be more genuine.
Siirilä offers a bed & breakfast, and don’t miss their nice sauna. Guests can book their own riding lesson; there is a suitable level and a horse for everyone. According to the wonderful staff of Siirilä, most guests stay for one night and visit our big attractions, PowerPark amusement park and the Ähtäri Zoo, but we recommend staying a few more nights and enjoying farm life.
Vanha Pappila Hetki, Ähtäri
We´re sorry to say, but this absolutely gorgeous 2-storey mansion will steal a piece of your heart. The heart and soul of the house, Kaisa, has created a unique atmosphere like no other. She has put the utmost thought into rooms that are decorated with good taste, and we can’t even remember the last time we had a night´s sleep this good. Private rooms provide your own safe place and make sure you take a look at those tiny notebooks that serve as quest books.
Breakfast is served downstairs, and the walk on the stairs is memorable. When was the last time you heard gentle piano melodies? Bread straight from the oven, and porridge with berries – that’s a true Nordic breakfast. A sauna by the lake can be reserved for your own private hour, and there is an opportunity to go for a swim – or a dip, if the lake water is as it usually is – cold.
Olo Tila, Kurikka
“If people are dreamingof New York, why couldn’t they be dreaming of Viitalankylä, Kurikka?” asks Tiina, the owner of Olo Tila, and she is absolutely right. Olo Tila is a traditional old Ostrobothnian estate, and there you’ll be surrounded by Finnish nature – fields of barley and rye.
Olo Tila offers retreat-like stays. You can add art workshops and relaxations to your stay, and the towns of Kurikka, Ilmajoki and Seinäjoki aren’t too far away, if you want to add some small-town vibes to your trip.
If you are looking for a historical place to stay, this is the place for you. Lentohotelli used to serve as an army airforce base and school, and the beautiful pink building designed by Elsa Arokallio and built in 1929 is now renovated and turned into hotel rooms. The location is stunning – take a stroll around the historical site. During summer, the destination hosts a bunch of events and festivals so it’s worth keeping an eye on their event calendar.
Once in Kauhava, don’t miss the town’s nice shopping opportunities. Lankava and Tuulia’s Design offer absolutely everything for DIY & craft-minded people, and the Iisakki Järvenpää Knife Factory has been crafting the finest knives for years – a souvenier like no other.
HiljaHelena Bed&Breakfast, Kurikka
South Ostrobothnian hospitality? The owner of HiljaHelena bed & breakfast really knows what she’s doing running a place where people come back over and over again. The hotel is very tidy, and warm colours create a cozy atmosphere. Breakfast is served when you wish, and as it is mostly a buffet with fresh bread, eggs and bacon come straight from the kitchen.
The helpful staff gladly share their tips to discover the Kurikka region – how about a walk by the river, or a lunch in an old train station? Kurikka is also the hometown of famous Finnish skier Juha Mieto; his newly unveiled statue is a sight not to be missed.
Hotel Alma, Seinäjoki
Accommodation in Seinäjoki at its best. When arriving to Seinäjoki, Hotel Alma is your place to go. Old railway staff buildings serve as restaurants these days, and a tower built in 1920 used to be a water tower. Nowadays those are Tower rooms that each have their own sauna, so you can enjoy all that the Seinäjoki city centre has to offer, and then relax in your own sauna.
Maybe you like theatre or movies? Shopping and cafés? Seinäjoki has this charming small-town vibe.
