Island escape to Finnhamn

A stone's throw away from Stockholm, head over to discover the islands during an idyllic stop, where time has no hold.

At the edge of Stockholm, you will find a natural wonder. At the confluence of Lake Mälaren and the Baltic Sea lies an archipelago formed by glaciers, bringing together 25,000 islands, islets and skerries over nearly 50 kilometres.
A two-and-a-half-hour ferry ride from the capital stretches a northern paradise that owes its name to the Finnish boats that once stopped there to refuel. Finnhamn is famous for its deep black waters as well as its lush flora of pines, oaks and birches.
Make a stop in one of its enchanting coves such as well-named Paradise Bay, where boaters anchor in the summer. On the programme, you will be spoilt for choice: rowing excursion, fishing trip or sauna session followed by a dip in the icy waters and benefactors of this preserved island, outside of time.
