The Åland archipelago consists of six different island municipalities, each distinctly unique. Thanks to regular ferry services between islands, it’s easy to get acquainted with several amazing islands on the same trip, or stay for longer on one of them. More information and ferry timetables can be found on the Ålandstrafiken website.
Brändö is just a 30-minute ferry ride from the nearest Finnish mainland, Osnäs and Gustavs, making Brändö an excellent destination for short spontaneous visits as well as longer stays with the possibility of working remotely, for example.
