Fishing Holidays in Finland is the quality time!

Why Merikoivula and how did it get started?

The founder enjoyed vacationing and fishing in various parts of Finland for 30 years. Mostly with with his family and friends, sometimes with business partners. In recent years, he began to come across the fact that four families didn’t seem to fit right into anything. Here and there were a couple of adjoining cottages built in the 70s, but half of the group had to spend the night somewhere far away, up to 10-20 km from others.

No ramp for launching boats was found at several locations. Boat docks, boat rentals, tables for cleaning fish were in most places either in poor condition or completely missing. It all left the feeling that this form of vacation has not received enough attention. So originally it was planned to build something just for the own family and friends, but then he saw Merikoivula and the story begun, in June 2019.

You are welcome to spend your fishing holidays in Lokalahti, Finland, on the shores of a beautiful bay in a pine forest. Merikoivula Fishing and Holiday Village is located in Finnish Archipelago, 230 km by car from Helsinki, 65 km from Turku, 16 km from Uusikaupunki by car or 7 km by boat by the sea.

Merikoivula has actually been known by the name already since 1969, when a closed holiday and recreation area for the Raisio Mills was built in Lokalahti. Since 2008 Merikoivula has been privately owned and operated.

During the 2020, 7 cozy and luxurious Villas were completed and original Villa Holm, had a total makeover. Cottage Holm and 6 Summer cottages or campsites had some facelift as well. We have made all possible to offer you the best fishing holidays in Finland.

In total, the Holiday Village can accommodate up to 100 people.

In addition to leisure activities, you can rent a party- and meeting room with a sauna or Holm sauna and the hot tub.
