Pyhäjokilaakso is the basin of the Pyhäjoki river, located in Northern Ostrobothnia, Finland. The town of Pyhäjoki is situated at the mouth of the river, where it empties into the Gulf of Bothnia of the Baltic Sea.
The river name Pyhäjoki literally means "Sacred River". In Finland, a number of placenames begin with the element Pyhä- (sacred), including Pyhäjärvi (Sacred Lake) as well as Pyhäjoki. The background of these names probably is ancient pagan beliefs.
