Finnish Archipelago

Destinations
A group of islands scattered throughout the Baltic Sea, close to Turku.

The Finnish Archipelago is a natural wonder. There are over 40,000 islands and islets in this extraordinary labyrinth, and still more are rising from the sea.

Beginning in Turku, Finland’s oldest city and original capital, the archipelago sweeps north towards Kustavi, west towards Pargas, and far south towards Kimitoön. Here, on this side of the Baltic Sea, white-tailed eagles soar over the glittering water, majestic lighthouses stand on lonely outcrops, and picture-perfect villages celebrate traditions that began long ago. Travel slowly, breathe deeply, and savour the archipelago, one island at a time.
