A view of the Parainen archipelago in Finland.
Finland’s archipelago has more than 180,000 islands running along much of the coastline, making the region an island-hopper’s dream.
The sizes vary from larger populated islands to very small ones ? some accessible by road and others by a ferry or a boat.
The Archipelago Trail (‘Saariston Rengastie’ in Finnish), a 250 kilometer route with ferry connections, is very popular for cycling and almost all ferries can be used for free.
