More About the Aland Islands

The Åland Islands are situated between Sweden and Finland, in the northern part of the Baltic Sea.

They constitute an autonomous and monolingual Swedish region of Finland with its own flag. Åland also has its own stamps and internet top-level .ax domain.

A total of 27,500 people live in Åland. About 11,000 of them live in Åland's only town, Mariehamn. The town was founded in 1861 and today it is the commercial and political centre. It is also Åland's seat of government.

The islands' main industries include shipping, trade, banking, farming and the production of food items. Shipping has always been a particularly important activity for the region and, in terms of characterising the Ålanders, there is no other industry like it.

Ferries in Aland

Visit the Maritime Museum, the Museum Ship Pommern and the Maritime Quarter in Mariehamn to find out more about the islands' fascinating maritime history.

The things that make Åland unique are its unspoiled archipelago and the beautiful bedrock, worn smooth by glacier ice, that gets its red colour from the area's rapakivi granite. Åland's 6,500 islands have a world to offer where the sea is always nearby. Did you know that Åland has more sunshine hours than anywhere else in Northern Europe between May and August?

Another of Åland's distinctive traits is the midsummer sight of maypoles, colourful garlands and olde worlde windmills. You can see some of them in the Jan Karlsgården open air museum in Kastelholm where you'll also get to see what a typical Ålander farm looked like around the end of the 19th century.

Annual Champagne Auction

The world’s oldest, still drinkable and most exclusive champagne on the market can be bought at an annual auction held in Mariehamn. This year’s auction and champagne event takes place on 8 June at Alandica Culture & Congress Centre in Mariehamn.

In the summer 2010, a shipwreck was found at a depth of approximately 50 metres in the Åland archipelago. The wreck had a cargo that contained intact champagne bottles, among other things. Much of the ship’s history, including its final destination, is still unknown, but according to the experts the champagne is from the first half of the 1800s.

The bottles originate from the world-famous champagne houses Veuve Clicquot, Juglar and Heidsieck Monopole. Today the bottles are owned by the Government of Åland.
The first champagne auction was arranged in 2011 by the Government of Åland in co-operation with Alko and the world’s premier wine auction house Acker Merrall & Condit from New York.

After an introductory auction of other unique vintage bottles from 1950–2000, two highly anticipated vintage bottles from the shipwreck were sold. A single bottle of Juglar almost made the world record, selling for an impressive €24,000, and only beaten by the bottle of Veuve Clicquot that was sold for an amazing €30,000.

The financial surplus is ear-marked for charitable causes, such as marine archeology and the Baltic Sea aquatic environment.

The Åland Islands

The Åland Islands are a group of small islands officially belonging to Finland but awarded a wide degree of autonomy by a League of Nations decision in 1921 that settled a long-running dispute between Sweden and Finland.

Among other things, Ålanders have their own parliament, publish their own stamps, are exempt from military service and maintain a special tax status in the European Union.

The archipelago consists of around 80 inhabited islands plus around 6000 uninhabited islands, islets and rocks. The total population is only 26,530 (2004), 90% of which lives on the main island Åland (also known as Fasta (Mainland Åland), which includes the capital Mariehamn.

There are plenty of ferry connections between Åland and mainland Sweden and Finland. Primarily for tax reasons, ferries plying between Helsinki and Stockholm all stop off at Mariehamn or the nearby (30km east, approximately) jetty of Långnäs, making this the easiest and cheapest way to get in (although docking often happens at inconvenient times in the middle of the night - the Långnäs stops).

Mariehamn also has a small airport that serves flights to mainland Finland and Sweden.
