Åland was popular amongst Finns this summer. About 6,000 domestic passengers flew to Mariehamn this summer.

Autumn in Åland is stunning and seems to last forever. We are still caressed by warm sea breezes during the day, and the long nights are perfect for cozy evenings indoors. Seize the occasion and enjoy a safe, healthy autumn with us.

Certain travel restrictions are still in place, and it is important to follow the recommendations, but domestic travellers are welcome, and you can spend as much time outdoors as you like. Finnair flies direct between Helsinki and Mariehamn. Over the summer, we had an influx of domestic Finnish visitors visiting Åland for their holidays. We loved seeing them here.

There is still plenty to enjoy on our beautiful island - you are welcome to come and visit! Why not spend a long weekend in Åland playing golf, or fishing? Perhaps sporting events are your thing? Then make sure you sign up for our classic Åland Marathon. With several different competition classes, it caters to a range of skill levels.

September is the time for the popular harvest festival held in various villages around Åland. As the autumn progresses and the days shorten, the Christmas markets start. The harvest festival and the Christmas markets offer a range of high-quality local organic produce and delicious Åland dishes.
