Hailuoto island / Isla de Hailuoto / Île de Hailuoto / Ilha de Hailuoto

In English:

Hailuoto is the third biggest island in Finland and it is also a municipality with the same name.

Hailuoto (freely translated Shark islet) is situated in the Gulf of Bothnia to the west of the town of Oulu. It is reachable by regular ferries from Oulunsalo (near to Oulu). The number of population of Hailuoto is less than 1000. This summer we decided to visit there for the first time in our life. We had no idea what kind of landscape was waiting for us in Hailuoto.

Embarking the ferry was fast, although residents had a privilege to embark first using their own car lane, but it was not a problem. Everything went fast and without a hitch. The capacity of the ferry was 55 cars. On the ferry, there were also some trucks, campers, trailers and motobikes. The length of ferry route was 6893 meters, which took 25 minutes. When we reached Hailuoto, we decided to drive thru the island to Marjaniemi 30 km / 18.6mi.

Landscape was quite typical Finnish countryside landscape showing forests, fields and old settlement. When approaching Marjaniemi, the landscape became more sandy on the both side of the road. In many places, there were visible bilberry and lingonberry twigs. Lingonberry was in bloom currently. In Marjaranta, the landscape had changed to seaside view. There were sandy beaches, restaurant, café, rentable cottages, village museum etc. My photos, shows what we saw on our road trip.

En español:

Hailuoto es la tercera grande isla de Finlandia.

Hailuoto (libremente traducido islote del tiburón) está situado en el golfo de Bothnia al oeste de la ciudad de Oulu. Es accesible por los transbordadores regulares de Oulunsalo (cerca de Oulu). El número de población de Hailuoto es menos de 1000. Este verano decidimos visitar allí por primera vez en nuestra vida. No teníamos idea de qué tipo de paisaje nos esperaba en Hailuoto.

El embarque de ferry fue rápido, aunque los residentes tuvieron el privilegio de embarcarse primero usando su propio carril, pero no fue un problema. Todo pasaba confortablemente y sin problemas. La capacidad del transbordador era 55 carros. En el transportador, también había algunos camiones, coche-camas y motocicletas. La longitud de la ruta del ferry era 6893 metros, que tomó 25 minutos. Cuando llegamos a Hailuoto, decidimos conducir a través de la isla a Marjaniemi 30 km / 18.6mi.

El paisaje era un un paisaje campesino finlandés bastante típico que mostraba bosques, campos y antiguo asentamiento. Al acercar a Marjaniemi, el paisaje cambiaba más arenoso en ambos lados de la carretera. En muchos lugares, habían visibles mirtilos y arándanos árticos. El arándano ártico estaba en flor actualmente. En Marjaranta, el paisaje había cambiado por el paisaje costero. Había playas de arena, restaurante, cafetería, cabinas alquilables, etc. Mis vos fotos, muestran lo que vimos en nuestro viaje por carretera.

En francais:

Hailuoto est la troisième plus grande île en Finlande.

Hailuoto (traduit librement îlot de requins) est situé dans le golfe de Bothnia à l’ouest de la ville d’Oulu. Il est accessible par les ferries réguliers de Oulunsalo (près d’Oulu). Le nombre de population de Hailuoto est inférieur à 1000. Cet été, nous avons décidé de le visiter pour la première fois dans notre vie. Nous n’avions aucune idée de ce genre de paysage qui nous attendait à Hailuoto.

L’embarquement de ferry était rapide, bien que les résidents aient le privilège d’embarquer d’abord en utilisant leur propre voie automobile, mais ce n’était pas un problème. Tout a passé bien et sans encombre. La capacité du ferry était de 55 voitures. Sur le ferry, il y avait aussi des camions, motorhomes et motos. La longueur de la route du ferry était de 6893 mètres, ce qui a pris 25 minutes. Lorsque nous sommes arrivés à Hailuoto, nous avons décidé de conduire à travers l’île à Marjaniemi 30 km / 18.6mi.

Le paysage était un paysage rural typiquement finlandais montrant des forêts, des champs et paysage de campagne. En approchant de Marjaniemi, le paysage devenait plus sablonneux de deux côté de la route. Dans de nombreux endroits, il y avait des brindilles de myrtilles et de airelle. L’airelle était en pleine floraison actuellement. À Marjaranta, le paysage avait changé en vue mer. Il y avait des plages de sable, un restaurant, un café, des chalets à louer, etc. Mes photos, vous présentent ce que nous avons vu sur notre voyage sur la route.

Em Português:

Hailuoto é a terceira maior ilha na Finlândia.

Hailuoto (livremente traduzido ilhota de tubarão) está situado no Golfo de Botnia, a oeste da cidade de Oulu. É acessível por ferries regulares de Oulunsalo (perto de Oulu). O número de habitantes de Hailuoto é inferior a 1000. Este verão decidimos visitar por aí pela primeira vez em nossa vida. Não tínhamos ideia de que tipo de paisagem nos esperava em Hailuoto.

Embarcar na balsa foi rápido, embora os residentes tivessem o privilégio de embarcar primeiro usando sua própria via do carro, mas não era um problema. Tudo passou agradavelmente e decorreu sem engate. A capacidade da balsa foi de 55 carros. Na balsa, havia também alguns caminhões, autocaravanas, motocicletas ecaravanas. O comprimento da rota da balsa foi de 6893 metros, o que levou 25 minutos. Quando chegamos a Hailuoto, decidimos dirigir pela ilha até Marjaniemi 30 km / 18.6mi.

A paisagem era um a paisagem típica do campo finlandesa mostrando as florestas, os campos e as antigas povoações. Ao se aproximar de Marjaniemi, a paisagem tornou-se mais arenosa em ambos os lados da estrada. Em muitos lugares, havia visíveis galhos de mirtilo e airela vermelha. As airelas vermelhas estavam em flor atualmente. Em Marjaranta, a paisagem mudou para a vista do mar. Havia praias arenosas, restaurante, café, casas de campo para alugar, etc. Minhas fotos, mostram-vos o que vimos na nossa viagem.

    Hailuoto Island is a nice landscape. Many white birds are gulls? The last forest is my favorite scenery

    • Hello Wakasahs15th.

      They are gulls. Last photos showing forest is typical berry forest to pick berries. When young I picked blueberries and sold them on a market. With that money, I made my first trip to abroad!

  3. Thank you for sharing! I visited Nuuksio a few weekends ago, and that landscape is very different from the forest you picture on Hailuoto. I love the beach and the cottages, they’re so quaint! I’m glad you got to visit somewhere new.

  17. Hello Matti, Hailuoto was definitely worth your (first) trip! A very nice place as the island offers rather different impressions. I always like the combination of seashores and forests which – however – generally cannot be found so close together. As neighbours, so to speak. Quite a lot of sea gulls! Obviously the like the island, too! And what a large area in the forest covered with (lingon)berries! Great!

    Thanks for showing the island! Have a nice week and best wishes from Hamburg!

    • Hello Michèle.

      Anja and I are very happy that You visited my blog and left praising comment. The diversity of Hailuoto was finally surprising. Did You notice that the Finnish word “Hai” is the same word with same meaning in German also? To us it is surprising! All the best to You and Yours. Matti

      Comment by Sartenada — August 2, 2017 @ 11:06 | Reply

      • It is! But I just noticed that obviously some Old Nordic roots, the Dutch word (“haai”) and even a word existing in Iceland (“hai”) seem to be the roots of our today’s denomination. I presume Scandinavia, that means also your neighbours, are referring to this origin and we – as our German and the Dutch language are quite similar – do not hesitate to use it, too. The former meaning of “hai” is “hook” and if you have a look at the dorsal fin of the shark you can recognize a quite remarkable resemblance. The question, however, is – why do English speaking people say “shark” instead of “hai” or perhaps “hook”. 🙂

        Comment by ladyfromhamburg — August 4, 2017 @ 20:24 | Reply

        • Hello Michèle.

          Big thank to You solving this mystery. 🙂 My wife has many times mentioned the word “Hai” when solving German crosswords and we have wondered how it is possible, because our language differs very much from other languages. This do not belong to You, but in Sanskrit and in Finnish the number 100 is “sata”. Of course, spelling varies a little. This was one example of curiosities of Finnish language. Some decades ago, one Finnair pilot was interested in similarities with Finnish and Ketšua. He published these in our local magazine finding, if I remember correct, nearly one hundred similarities. Unfortunately he died too early.

          Enjoy weekend. Matti

On those road trips, we have visited also Liechtenstein, France, Luxembourg, and Belgium. From Germany we have find some gorgeous things, which I have presented in About-me-page. I have also mad three posts from Norway when on road trip. In addition, some posts from Karelia when seeking stems of my father.in-law I prefer yet after years my post presenting Nordkapp. Thank You.

  29. I love offshore islands so much. The slower pace, the friendly people and pure air make me want to stay longer and visit again. This post on Hailuoto speaks to me in this matter. What a beautiful place captured so well with these stunning images. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
