Boats in Marjaniemi harbor

Hailuoto is the largest island in the Gulf of Bothnia in Oulu province, Finland.

Get in[edit]

Ice road to Hailuoto.

By ferry[edit]

Most people arrive with the free ferry (timetable 2017) from Oulunsalo on the mainland. The ferry takes both cars and lighter traffic.

By car[edit]

In the winter when the ice is strong enough it is possible to drive to the island without taking the ferry.

By bus[edit]

You can reach Hailuoto by Oulu PTA's bus number 59 from Oulu. There are a couple of buses a day, and they also cross over to the island using the cable ferry.
