Kayaking in Åland

4 days

The Åland Islands are a true paradise for kayaking and Sandösund in Vårdö has for a while been the best place to go to for that. With a protected bay as your base you can paddle among the many islands of Vårdö, to the Bomarsund fortress ruins, to the Kastelholm castle, or to Kumlinge, Seglinge, Föglö or Sottunga. Or why not set out for one of the many uninhabited islands to enjoy the peace and quiet?

This package includes your ferry to Åland, a cosy sleeping cabin in Sandösund, as well as top of the line kayaks. For your comfort bed linens are included, as well as breakfast every morning. You can also enjoy the floating sauna on the resort. July and august are considered the best time for kayaking in Åland, but spring and autumn also offers great views.

Prices are calculated for a minimum of 2 participants.

The trip to Åland

Your package includes return trip ferry tickets for all participants. You can also bring your car or other vehicle for an extra fee. Departure is available from these ports:

  • Aboard the ferry you can have nice meals in the restaurants or buffets, and do some duty free shopping. In Mariehamn you can visit the Maritime Museum and the impressive tall ship Pommern.

During the drive you will pass the Kastelholm castle and the Bomarsund fortress ruings. You can also arrive by ferry in Eckerö instead of Mariehamn and drive to Vårdö.

    If you arrive without a vehicle, there is a bus from Mariehamn to Vårdö.
