Åland – a delight to all sensesÅland is inhabited by peace that attracts tourists back to enjoy the unique nature of its islands time and again. Winding island roads, charming wooden houses, apple trees, leafy groves and the sparkling sea behind almost every corner and hill. A holiday in Åland delights both the eye and the mind – and tempts the taste buds. Consisting of six municipalities and 6,500 islands, and sporting its own blue-yellow-red flag, Åland offers experiences to suit all tastes. As a tourist destination, Åland has several assets. The varied archipelago nature appeals to friends of the rugged outer island and those of softer woodlands alike. You can explore everything during one visit since distances are short.
Paradise for activity holidaymakers
Sport anglers can experience the joys of fishing all year round. The pike season lasts from mid-September to December, and when the ice sets in you can go after sea trout in the open areas or try your luck in the Åland ice-fishing championships. Should fishing and other outdoor activities not be to your taste, Eckeröhallen offers plenty of opportunities for indoor exercise, ranging from all ball games to athletics, golf and archery, from dawn till dusk throughout the year.
