Åland Travel Guide: 74 reviews and 127 photos

I had the opportunity to visit the archipelago of the Åland islands on our way from Stockholm to Finland. I had no idea of their existence, but what a great idea my friends had when they decided to stop there !!!!
Nature, nature and again nature, this is a paradise for bikers ! And for everyone who is in love with nature :-)
Around 6 500 islands, big and small, inhabited or virgin, covering 8 300 km2 between Sweden and Turku in Finland and separating the Baltic Sea from the Gulf of Finland. After Finland’s independence from Russia in 1917, the archipelago was first occupied by Russian soldiers, and swedish people came to help Finland in this struggle. But then they claimed authority on the islands as well… After many debates, the archipelago was finally proclaimed autonomous province of Finland, with a capital of 10 000 inhabitants, Mariehamn.

    Thanks for showing me another place to add to my "must see" list (have collected postage stamps from there for years but had never realized how beautiful it is "in person".
