Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
The city of Ikaalinen is situated in the countryside, 230km from Helsinki and 50km from Tampere. The population is 7489. Ikaalinen is most known for Ikaalisten kylpylä (Ikaalinen spa) and the festival Sata-Häme Soi (accordion festival) and Sauna festival, which are both organized every summer. The city is quite old and beautiful, landscape is traditionally Finnish.

In the summer the city is buzzing because of many summer residents. There's a couple of good beaches in the center and also in the area of Ikaalinen spa. You can also find horse stables, golf course, Seitseminen national park, ice rinks (in the winter), ski tracks in Vatula (in the winter, in the summer you can run and orientate there) and a pretty small ski center in spa's area.

Shopping possibilities are weak. There're some shops in Ikaalinen spa, but in the center the shops are mainly only supermarkets and tool etc. agriculture shops. There's also own shop for organic food in the city Ikaalisten luomu - an organic food farm (produces tomatoes, cucumber, salad..).
