The sea’s “backyard” consists of 50,000 islands, rocks and skerries. The Finnish Archipelago is the largest in the world. Old wooden towns, lighthouses, historical manors and stone churches, large national parks stretching over land and sea – this all sums up coastal Finland in a nutshell, according to Visit Finland. You’re going to love the laid-back islander lifestyle. Beaches, handicraft markets, small town events, cafes and village shops – what’s not to love?
