Aland Islands

Last updated: 24 December 2017
The Aland Islands, is a pristine and picturesque archipelago of more than six thousand seven hundred islands. They lie scattered in the Baltic Sea between Sweden and Finland, and although this autonomous area forms part of Finland, the people speak Swedish.  

The islands have the sunniest shores in Northern Europe, which is why they attract many visitors in search of water sports and fun in the sun. Try sailing, kite surfing, speed boating or kayaking. Play golf on one of three 18-hole golf courses. Cycle through the pine forests and along the tranquil waterways. Stay in a wooden hut just above the rock pools on the beaches. You’ll be surrounded by water scattered with similar small islands as far as the eye can see.

Crossing from one island to the next in search of isolated beaches is easy as latticed bridges join many of them, and there is an extensive network of ferries offering free rides.
