EduTravel operates in the region of Satakunta
Satakunta is the oldest historical province in Finland. It is located on the southwest coast of Finland and it is one of the 18 regions in Finland. The regional centres are the city of Pori and the city of Rauma. The Kokemäenjoki river flows through the region into the Gulf of Bothnia. It reaches the sea in Pori, forming a major estuary, which is unique in Europe for its vast area of wetlands. The beautiful Yyteri beach and unique Reposaari island filled with old wooden houses are located by the sea. There are also many lakes in the area.
