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 facilities included in the inventory are presented under Inventory of facilities’ accessibility under the main menu Accessible Åland.
You’re welcome to contact Åland Tourist Information office at [email protected], tel. +358 18 240 00 or via the chat service on the website www.visitaland.com for more information before your visit to Åland.
