Magic Moments 2019
Finland, the cleanest and greenest country in the world*, is known for exceptionally good air, vast green forests and crystal clear lakes. Finland is so unique because of its perception of life with all the senses. A combination of uninhabited nature, quiet lakes and the famous Finnish sauna tradition make your holiday in Finland so unforgettable. Staying in harmony with nature, both your body and soul get relaxed.
Discover the magic islands of the archipelago on your round trip through Finland. With around 6,700 islands, the island group Åland stretches in the northern Baltic Sea at the entrance to the Gulf of Bothnia between Sweden and the mainland of Finland. The Åland Islands have a population of about 30,000 and are politically autonomous. Swedish has been the only official language of the region since a decision made in 1921. Certain political and economic rights are also restricted to Finnish citizens. The economy of the islands today is determined by foreign traffic and shipping. The latter is facilitated by special tax arrangements which allow tax-free shopping when trading with Åland.

The Åland Islands
Explore the nature
Begin your trip in Helsinkitravelling to Turku with a rental car. The journey to the Åland Islands starts the next day.
Turku is a modern city with a breathtaking archipelago nature at its foot. Explore Turku's attractions such as the Renaissance-style castle, which also houses a museum of the city's history. Your Island hopping starts right after breakfast. The route takes you via Brändö, the most northeastern of the Åland Islands, further by ferry to Enklinge. There you leave your car and will be picked up by your hosts for the next night by a private boat. The trip goes to the small island Bärö with no roads at all. Enjoy your stay in a comfortable hotel and relax after dinner with a refreshing swim in the sea or a visit to the sauna. After breakfast, you will be taken back to your car by boat.
Afterwards you will drive to Mariehamn, the "capital" of the Åland Islands. Enjoy shopping and entertainment in Mariehamn.
Finally, you will return from Mariehamn to Helsinki in your own cabin on a night ship for a morning flight back home.
