Kalajoki is known as a tourist municipality whose main attraction is Hiekkasärkät, sand dunes that span several kilometres. In addition to beach activities, summer in Kalajoki also offers a wide range of events to choose from, intended for different target groups.
The revamped website of the City of Kalajoki has now also been published in English and Russian. The Finnish version of the website was published at the end of January 2016. The language versions support the city’s strategy, which aims to promote internationality, among other things.
There are dozens of kilometres of maintained ski trails around the city, most of which are illuminated. The city also maintains several ice hockey rinks and skating areas that can be used freely.
The Infopankki online service is a multilingual website that compiles important information for those planning to relocate to Finland and those already living in Finland. The website also includes information on Kalajoki in four languages.
