The Åland archipelago is diverse with many uninhabited islands and not very much boating traffic. Many are amazed at the stillness of the archipelago. You can paddle for a whole day without seeing a single other boat, even in high season. The bird life is also rich, and spotting a sea-eagle is not uncommon. There are also water types for everybody, from beginners to more skilled paddlers. In small areas you'll find different types of seascape with both open water and areas with many islands and skerries.
