Mariehamn

Mariehamn is the capital of Åland, an autonomous territory under Finnish sovereignty. Change things up with these side-trips from Mariehamn: Getabergen (in Geta), Bomarsund (in Sund) and Eckero (Karingsunds Viltsafari, Eckerö Post & tullhus, &more). Pack the 11th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Smart Park. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Museumship Pommern, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kobba Klintar, get engrossed in the history at The Cultural History Museum of Aland, and explore the world behind art at The Aland Island Art Museum.

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.
