Alternatives Routes to Åland:
Kökar - as far out as one can get in the Åland archipelago:
The strong recommendation is travel by boat / ferries. (You can fly If
you can afford renting an airplane and If you want to miss an exceptional
experience - a wonderful cruise through the Åland archipelago.)
For travel by water and if you don't take your own boat, some different
alternatives are presented below. (Time estimates are rough and do vary
on each operators' time schedules. There's a time difference (+1h) between
Sweden and Åland-Kökar-Finland.)
Typically a trip in three phases (water, land, water):
- 1(a) Take any of the "Åland/Finland
Ferries" from Stockholm, Kapellskär or Grisslehamn
on the Swedish main land to Mariehamn (ferries from Grisslehamn
arrives in Eckerö).2.5 h Kapellskär-Mariehamn, 6h Stockholm-Mariehamn,
- Car or buss over the Åland main land to Långnäs
in Lumparland (geographical area). Plan with 1h...
- 2(a) Any Inter-Island
ferry on the Southern route ("Södra Linjen")
brings you Kökar. 2.5h ferry trip in a wonderful archipelago.
Two main alternatives:
- 1(b) "Åland/Finland
Ferries" from Åbo or Helsinki to Mariehamn
(some ferries even make a short stop in Långnäs on
their way). Then as 2(a) above.
- 2(b) Directly from Galtby in Korpo on
the Finnish main land out to Kökar. Some of the inter-Island
ferries on Southern route ("Södra Linjen")
goes all the way between Åland and Galtby with several stops on
different islands, including Kökar. 2.5h.
