A naturally beautiful island

Hailuoto is an island in Northern Ostrobothnia. It is the third largest island in Finland, known for its beautiful nature, sandy beaches and bird watching opportunities. A small, close-knit community of about 1,000 inhabitants lives on the island, and you can get there by ferry from Oulu. Hailuoto also has a rich cultural history and is home to several museums and art galleries.

Bättre Folk Festival takes over Hailuoto this July!

Bättre Folk is an iconic hipster festival specializing in new music and literature.

In addition to new music and literature, the festival area has restaurants and bars serving local food, organic wines and microbrewery beers, as well as several saunas and spas that are freely available to the public.

Bättre Folk will take place on July 14-15, 2023 in Marjaniemi, Hailuoto, practically in the middle of the sea. The age limit for the festival is 18 years and the festival area as a whole is a drinking area.


"On one cold ferry trip, a dream was born: someday we would establish our own organic brewery in Hailuoto. Brewing organic beer from Hailuoto's groundwater seemed just the right and inspiring idea."
