Mariehamn is the capital of Åland, an autonomous territory under Finnish sovereignty. On the 14th (Wed), examine the collection at Museumship Pommern, brush up on your military savvy at Aland Maritime Museum, then walk around Lilla holmen, and finally step off the mainland to explore Kobba Klintar. Here are some ideas for day two: make a trip to The Maritime Quarter, then contemplate the long history of Bomarsund, then examine the collection at Kastelholm Castle, and finally indulge in some personalized pampering at Badhuset Mariebad.

There are many things that distinguish the autonomous Aland Islands from the rest of Finland, including the fact that they have their own parliament, issue their own stamps, and speak Swedish as the official language. The archipelago, situated in the Gulf of Bothnia, includes over 6,000 islands, of which about 80 are inhabited. Many of the area's dining and accommodation options can be found on the picturesque main island, where 90 percent of the population resides. Natural beauty and an assortment of historical buildings make the islands an attractive holiday option. With a very flat landscape, cycling is one of the most popular, efficient, and enjoyable ways to get around. Regular ferries hop between the isles.
