Archipelago Sea is a part of the Baltic Sea between the Gulf of Bothnia, the Gulf of Finland and the Sea of Aland , within Finnish Territorial waters . By some definitions it contains the largest archipelago (island group) in the world by the number of islands, although many of the islands are very small and tightly clustered.
The larger islands are inhabited and connected by ferries and bridges. The Aland Islands, including the largest islands of the region, form an autonomous region within Finland. The rest of the islands are part of province of Southwest Finland. The Archipelago Sea is a significant tourist destination.
Several of the islands have been developed for tourism. Accommodation facilities ranging from exclusive and luxurious beach villas to the more common simple sports cabins with good fishing opportunities are available. Several of the islands have been developed to provide coastal facilities.
The Archipelago Trail. The Archipelago Ring Road allows travellers to access the archipelago by car, bus or boat. The circular route of the Archipelago Trail, even though only approximately 250 kilometres in length, offers a surprising number of varied experiences. During your trip from one island to another, you will experience various ferries and vessels.
Yes, indeed Ella, a holiday for tourists here would just be wonderful!
