The Åland Islands are an archipelago situated in the Baltic Sea, midway between Sweden and Finland. Comprising around 6,700 islands, only about 60 are inhabited. The islands are an autonomous region of Finland but have their own parliament and flag. Known for their picturesque landscapes, maritime culture, and historic sites, Åland is a peaceful destination with a blend of Swedish and Finnish influences.

For the rail traveler, reaching Åland typically involves a train journey to a nearby coastal city like Turku or Stockholm, followed by a ferry ride to the islands. Once there, exploring by bicycle or local transport is a delightful way to enjoy the island's charm.
