EDGC 2023 – VENUE
The self-governing province of the Åland Islands lies off the southwest coast of Finland.
Åland is an autonomous, demilitarised, Swedish-speaking region of Finland.
Åland consists of more than 6,700 islands, but the current population of over 30,000 live on only 60 islands. Over 40 per cent of the inhabitants live in the only town, Mariehamn.
HOW TO GET THERE?
The Åland Islands are situated in the middle of the Baltic Sea, midway between Stockholm and Helsinki. There are daily connections to Åland from Finland and Sweden and you can choose to travel by ferry or by plane.
It’s important to make your reservations and book the journey to Åland well in advance – especially in the summer and if you are travelling by car or other motor vehicle on a ferry.
The fastest way of getting to Åland is to take a flight from Helsinki-Vantaa, Turku in Finland or Arlanda in Sweden.
