Archipelago Sea – Among the Best 50 Places to Travel in 2018

American Travel+Leisure recently listed The Best 50 Places to Travel in 2018. Archipelago Sea in Finland was on the list, and not without a reason.

Finland’s Archipelago Sea is the world’s largest, with 25,000 miles of shoreline and innumerable islands. Still off the beaten track for international tourists, who gravitate toward Helsinki in summer and Lapland in winter, the archipelago is the well-kept secret of the Finns, generations of whom flock to family-owned islands.

And if you’re into sailing, there are so many beautiful places to see and visit in the Archipelago Sea. Days are long, many destinations to choose from within each day and unspoiled nature everywhere. To learn more about sailing in Finland, the ultimate book to get is … Sailing in Finland!


And if you are not so much into sailing (yet), a great alternative is to rent a villa in the archipelago. One of the most luxurious alternatives is Villa Långstrand, conveniently located just 90 minutes from the Helsinki airport. While close to the city-level services, it’s a large sea-side property to enjoy your stay in full privacy. It’s a perfect place for relaxing vacation with privacy. You can enjoy your vacation in the middle of beautiful nature but still stay in a fully equipped house. Two large log houses, large Beach Sauna and a separate Smoke Sauna make your vacation or management team meeting complete experience. You can arrive here with your car or boat.
