The autonomous Finnish region, located in the Baltic Sea, at the Southern end of the Gulf of Bothnia between Finland and Sweden, inhabits just over 30,000 people spread over more than 6,700 islands and skerries. Notwithstanding the fact that Swedish is the sole official language, it has its own postage stamps and own flag.

As a tourist destination, Åland Islands are anything but monotonous: from adventurous island-hopping to boating, fishing, golfing to canoeing or kayaking all day without encountering another soul. As it is easy to get from one island to another, thanks to the many bridges and ferries, multi-day bicycle tours, destination riding or day rides and urban cycling can take you someplace new. Maybe to one of the many restaurants and bars, where you can enjoy authentic food that is produced locally. Cheese and other dairy products, beer, cider, juice and lemonades, chocolate, and bonbons, to only name a few of the many delicacies from Åland.

As the year 2022 marks the one hundredth anniversary of extensive political autonomy for the Åland Islands, participants can look forward to theatre performances, operas, seminars, light festivals, concerts and the grand anniversary celebration from 9 to 12 June 2022. The succeeding Åland Harvest Festival will take place from September 16-18. As the island can be easily reached from the Finnish mainland, such as by a ferry from Finland’s oldest city and former capital Turku or Helsinki, Aland invites the whole world to take part.

The nordic people were free to travel in the Scandinavian countries including Finland. No passports or travel documents were needed. The freedom still today is the most important for the Scandinavians from that epoch. Freedom is to travel, learn to know new countries and other languages, and meet different people and cultures. He wishes the new generations would have the same possibilities experiencing all that what makes you feel free, and building a strong personality. -
