Thetraveljunkie.org – Guess what! The best thing about Summer for us wasn’t the swimming pool or the beach…it was being able to enjoy the 14 degrees we had in Åland Islands, Finland. We assume Winter there can be quite harsh but being able to rock long sleeves and a few layers is our idea of the perfect summer.
For a place that feels so hidden and remote, Åland is surprisingly easy to get to. we choose to take the cruise! It’s only a few hours from Stockholm.
The autonomous Åland archipelago – a patch of around 7,000 islands, halfway between Finland and Sweden – is a Nordic holiday playground where people come to cycle, kayak, sail, fish, swim in the cold Baltic Sea and warm up in saunas afterwards. The islands are Swedish-speaking but attached to Finland, and families from both countries come here from early June to late August, renting wooden cabins by the sea.
Stay tuned for more of our adventures in Åland Islands, Finland.
Happy Sustainable Travels!
