SEE & DO
Cast off The most important thing is to leave the mainland behind, take one of the boats that leave from the Archipelago’s traffic hubs. Boat routes operate from Kustavi and Turku in the west to Hanko in the east. The map on the next page shows most of the Archipelago Sea’s scheduled routes. Of course, you can hire a taxi boat to travel outside of these areas.
Enjoy Typically, you will find accommodation, cafes and restaurants on most of the larger islands. A selection of them are presented here but you will find more at VisitArchipelago.com. Regardless of which route you choose, you will hopefully notice one thing; your troubles are left behind on the first jetty.
Come ashore Every island has its own atmosphere and unique sights. What are you looking for? Experiences in nature, war history, peace and quiet – you will find it all here. It is a delight that there are different routes serving the islands so that you can continue your journey deeper into the archipelago without returning to the same departure harbour. Plan well and you can make an unforgettable journey all the way from Hanko to the Åland Islands.
