Åland Islands ,Finland

An autonomous province comprising an archipelago of around 6,500 mostly uninhabited islands midway between the Finnish and Swedish coasts, Åland is Swedish speaking and boasts more hours of sunlight in summer than anywhere else in Europe. As well as their cheerily painted little wooden capital town, Mariehamn, the coastal islands are famous for their inland forests contrasting with areas of distinctive red granite bedrock, swept bare and smooth by retreating ice from the last Ice Age.
