Mariehamn

— 5 nights
Mariehamn is the capital of Åland, an autonomous territory under Finnish sovereignty. Family-friendly places like Museumship Pommern and Aland Hunting & Fishing Museum will thrill your kids. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Mariehamn: Eckero (Eckerö Post & tullhus & Karingsunds Viltsafari) and Bomarsund (in Sund). There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Aland Maritime Museum, stroll around Lilla holmen, examine the collection at Kastelholm Castle, and soothe aching muscles at Badhuset Mariebad.

To see where to stay, photos, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Mariehamn trip builder app.

Helsinki to Mariehamn is an approximately 2.5-hour flight. You can also ride a ferry. Expect a daytime high around 22°C in August, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Fri) to allow enough time to fly back home.

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.
