Varjakassa on venesatama, uimaranta, kahvila, ravintola ja upouusi koulu. Alue sijaitsee kansainvälisesti arvokkaiden Liminganlahden lintukosteikkojen äärellä. Varjakassa sijaitseva Akionlahden luonnonsuojelualue, joka on noin 400 vuotta sitten merestä lähes kokonaan irtautunut kluuvijärvi. Alue on linnustoltaan runsas ja lahti on tärkeä muuttolintujen levähdysalue, luonnontarkkailijan ehdoton käyntikohde. Akionsaaressa on lintutorni, joka on suosittu käyntikohde. www.visitwarjakka.fi

Varjakka Island

The buildings on the island are neoclassical and catch the eye of the passerby, even though they are already dilapidated. It is also worth noting that the island already had electricity at that time, even though it was still missing from the mainland! Time has stopped on the Varjakka island, but the stories emanating from the surroundings have not. www.warjakka.com

Hailuoto Island

A short distance from Varjakka, a free ferry leaves for the island of Hailuoto, known as the Pearl of the Inner Sea. Hailuoto is the largest island in the Bothnian Bay, and the nature and landscape have shaped the island into a national landscape. It is estimated that the first parts of the island were formed around 1700 years ago. Known for its fishing and lighthouse, the island has its own wonderful and sometimes dark history. The island is worth a visit. In winter, Warjakka B&B provides a great setting for accommodation when you arrive to go ice fishing in Bothnian Bay's perch-rich areas. In Mummunmökki's kitchen, you can prepare your own fish catch for a delicious meal. www.visithailuoto.fi
