out of 5

The picturesque town is spread out over several small islands connected by bridges, and it’s a great place to wander, explore and enjoy the fresh, Nordic air. Highlights include the ornate wooden houses, the lively harbour and the striking medieval church. Åland is a haven for cyclists, and there are plenty of trails and lanes to explore. Be sure to sample some of the local specialities, such as smoked fish and home-baked bread.
