Raahe is a town and municipality in Finland with a population of around 25, people.

This wooden architecture is what this quaint seaside town is famous for.

There are a number of beautiful, old churches in the area such as the Church of Saloinen where you can view medieval pictures of saints and the Saint Cabinet. Depending on what time of year you visit you can also see a number of music festivals like the Jazz Beach festival held in July or the Brahe Classica Festival held each autumn.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
