Living on the Åland islands

Åland is admittedly small, but the society is active and the welfare system is well developed. In addition, commuting distances are short and nature is close. Families with children do value and appreciate the safe community, guaranteed place in childcare and the small groups at daycare centers and schools.

You will find an abundance of active associations covering everything from football and gymnastics to theatre, dance and music. The cultural and entertainment scene is buzzing with activity, especially during the summer when festivals such as Rockoff and Åland's Sea Days fill the events calendar.

Åland also has a large selection of different activities. Golf, sailing, cross-country skating, swimming and modern gyms to name a few. The possibilities are almost unlimited. In addition, Stockholm is only four hours away. You can leave in the morning and be home again by night.

But maybe the best activity is doing absolutely nothing? On Åland, you have time to spend quality time with family or friends and enjoy the harmonious existence in our beautiful archipelago community.
