L'EuroVelo 10 en Finlande débute dans l'extrême nord, à la frontière suédoise, et se dirige vers le sud le long du golfe de Botnie, en direction de Helsinki, sur la côte du golfe de Finlande.

Au nord de la Finlande, la Véloroute de la Mer Baltique longe tout d'abord la baie de Botnie, que correspond à la partie la plus septentrionale du golfe de Botnie, lequel constitue à son tour la partie nord de la mer Baltique. Les terres qui occupent la baie s'élèvent encore suite à l'élimination du poids des glaciers de l'ère glaciaire et, dans les 2 000 prochaines années, la baie deviendra un grand lac d'eau douce. Ses eaux gèlent chaque année pendant six mois! Passant Kvarken, une région étroite du golfe de Botnie où la côte suédoise est à seulement 80 km, vous rejoindrez la côte de la mer de Botnie, le long de laquelle les plus grandes villes côtières sont Vaasa, Pori et Rauma. En arrivant vers le sud de la Finlande, vous atteindrez le plus grand archipel du monde en terme du nombre d'îles. Vous pourrez faire une pause dans les îles Åland, une région autonome au sein de la Finlande. Enfin, vous longerez le golfe de Finlande, qui s'étend entre la Finlande et l’Estonie, jusqu’à Saint-Pétersbourg en Russie.
