Welcome to Åland!
Visit Åland collaborates with the local tourism industry and Åland’s disability organisation Handikappförbund for a more accessible Åland for disabled visitors.
In the autumn of 2015 and the winter 2016, about 40 service establishments were surveyed by the organisation Accessible Sweden’s consultant Lilian Müller. The majority of the actors presented under Accessible Åland were included in the inventory. For these accommodations, sights & activities, the guests are recommended to contact the respective establishment for more detailed information.
You’re welcome to contact Åland Tourist Information office at firstname.lastname@example.org, tel. +358 18 240 00 or via the chat service on the website www.visitaland.com for more information before your visit to Åland.
