There is an airport in Kronoby serving Kokkola with flights to Helsinki. Kokkola is on the main north-south railroad, so you can easily get in by train from the southern or northern parts of the country. In addition buses along the coast stop in Kokkola, from where you can continue with local buses to inland towns.
Google Maps includes timetables of trains, long distance buses and local transport of many cities and towns. Other useful route planners are Matka.fi for trains and local buses and Matkahuolto Reittiopas for regional buses.
