the city of birches
The Nurmes region is situated in the eastern part of Finland, in the province of North Karelia. Here you can find truly unspoiled surroundings, pure crystal clear water and clean air. Vibrant spring, warm and green Finnish summer and beautiful, colorful autumn and snowy winters - it's all these four seasons that make Finland and Karelia an unique destination to visit and experience at any time of the year.
One is spoilt for choice when it comes to outdoor recreational activities - everyman's right allows you to enjoy the nature rather freely and many local businesses provide guided tours and other fun outdoor activities. The lakes are abundant with fish, guaranteeing great catches throughout the year. The Bomba House and Karelian Holiday Resort, along with Bomba Spa with its recently renovated pools and saunas, offer relaxation and invigoration whenever you feel the need.
Idyllic wooden houses and the Karelian village in Bomba make Nurmes an especially charming small town. The center of the city is located between two lakes and is known for its magnificent esker landscape, culturally important area of Wooden Nurmes and thousands of birches - which is why Nurmes is also known as the City of birches.
