Finland - Aland Archipelago (PDF Chapter)

$4.95 USD

This is the Åland Archipelago chapter from Lonely Planet’s Finland guide-book.

Åland is the sunniest spot in northern Europe and its sweeping white-sand beaches and flat, scenic cycling routes attract crowds of holidaymakers during summer. Yet outside the lively capital, Mariehamn, a sleepy haze hangs over the islands’ tiny villages and finding your own remote beach among the 6500 skerries and islets is surprisingly easy.

  • cycling the archipelago’s fantastically flat, well-marked routes alongside green fields, red granite and sparkling seascapes
  • maps
  • running the ramparts of the cannonball-scarred ruins at Bomarsund
  • transport
  • climbing aboard the four-masted barque Pommern outside Mariehamn’s state-of-the-art maritime museum
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Mariehamn, Mainland Åland & around, Jomala, Fin-ström, Sund, Vårdö, Saltvik, Geta, Hammarland, Eckerö, Lemland and Lumparland.
