The Åland archipelago is made up of 6,500 islands, and while most are rocky islets, more than 60 are inhabited. Nature in Åland is a beautiful combination of land and sea, and while the islands can be windy, they’re often sunnier than the mainland. When walking and hiking here, observe the massive pressure and erosion of the Ice Age on the land. With its open landscape and abundance of lakes, Åland is great for scenic winter activities! For example, when the ice is thick enough, the waterways surrounding Åland are perfect for long-distance ice skating. Equipment can be rented onsite or with the help of a local guide. Other wintry activities include ice bathing, hiking, skiing and cross-country skiing.
