Hiking in Åland offers a varied landscape where your surroundings change rapidly from uninhabited forest to ancient monuments and cultural buildings to sea views. Hike on a long-distance path or take a short walk. Choose the route that suits best for your interests and condition – according to the length, geographic location and the description of the train and nature.   

There are guided hikes on different themes around Åland in the summer – they are advertised on the events calendar and in the local papers.

Hiking and nature trails

The hiking trails in Åland are 10 to 60 kilometres long. For the most part they are easy, but the path is often uneven in parts and the bedrock can be slippery. A map and Åland Natur – a starter book on hiking in the countryside – are useful items to have with you.

The nature trails are between one and eight kilometres long and vary from easy to being of medium difficulty. No special equipment is required, but sometimes the ground can be wet, so boots or good outdoor shoes are recommended. Many of the nature trails are in the nature reserves.
