The Archipelago Trail

From 10 €
Duration 3 days

The Archipelago Trail is the perfect way to explore the idyllic Finnish Archipelago and coastline. Travel by car, bus, bike, motorbike or walk – the choice is yours!

Get the most out of your visit to the Finnish Archipelago - Explore The Archipelago Trail! The must- visit destination since 1996.

Shiny yellow car ferries and smaller blue and white passenger ferries, fantastic views from bridges and causeways, cute red wooden buildings, marinas brimming with sailing boats, these are all memories you will take home from The Archipelago Trail. The sea is never far away in one of the world’s most beautiful archipelagos.

You will visit most of the major islands in the archipelago. Each island has its own special charm. The route meanders through historic villages where you can find plenty of things to do during the summer.

There are many hotels, guesthouses, and restaurants that are open throughout the year so you can easily plan a visit outside of the main summer season. The ferry between Houtskär and Iniö only operates from mid-May to the end of August/ beginning of September; the other ferries operate the year around.
