Factory Island, Nokia

Experiences, culture, nature and activities in one city

Surrounded by lakes and hugged by rapids, Nokia, with its 33,500 residents, is one of the biggest cities of the Tampere Region.

Nokia is a city of doing things together. This has enabled many successes and created globally recognized local brands. Cooperation is still strong in the city.

The Pyhäjärvi beaches and nature are a part of the Nokia psyche. This is indeed a good place to settle and start a family. There is plenty to do in the city centre and the surrounding nature.

We have been at the forefront of Finnish industry for a long time. We are also pioneers of circular economy. The award-winning bio- and circular economy business area ECO3 brings together companies which grow into new success stories and create jobs for the people of Nokia. The city supports this by creating networks and services regardless of the size and field of activity of a company.

Exhibitions, numerous sights, museums, theatres and concerts offer unforgettable cultural experiences in Nokia, throughout the year. In August, Tapsan Tahdit and Ylisfestarit bring Finnish front-row artists into town. The spa hotel Scandic Eden Nokia is a favourite for the whole family.

Our unique nature offers a variety of activities for all ages. The Nokia River Golf golf centre, the disc golf courses of Nokia DiscGolfPark and extensive hiking trails offer activities for the whole family. For those who enjoy lakes there are inland water cruises and white water fishing in the majestic landscape of Siuronkoski.

We will receive you with a smile. You are guaranteed to enjoy yourself!
