250 km of nature experiences, delicious food, archipelago atmosphere, fun activities, and summer memories for life.

For over 25 years, the Archipelago Trail has been a popular destination among both cyclists and motorists, thanks to the easily accessible archipelago experience it offers. The islands along the route provide charming accommodations, delicious archipelago flavors, fantastic family-friendly activities, historical sights, and beautiful nature trails. Traveling around the trail is free, except for one fee-based ferry between Houtskär and Iniö.

The route is an experience for all kinds of travelers and can be traveled by any means of transport – whether by bike, on foot, by bus, motorcycle, or car!

The Archipelago Trail is open 10.5 – 8.9.2024.

The Archipelago Trail is open from mid-May into September, with a recommended travel time of 2-5 days. But don’t worry if you can’t visit during the summer season – the archipelago itself is accessible every day throughout the year. So pack your bags and bring the whole family to experience the beautiful surroundings of the Finnish archipelago!
