The home waters of Swan – the Finnish archipelago
Finland’s coast boasts the world’s largest archipelago with approximately 50 000 islands and skerries. 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.
The laid-back islander lifestyle and a strong maritime culture are key characteristics of this fascinating area. Finland’s capital, Helsinki, has also held onto its maritime charm. Beaches, handicraft markets, small town events, cafes and village shops – Finnish coastal towns are especially alive in the summer months.

Swan sailing in the Finnish archipelago
Thanks to the abundance of islands and skerries, and thanks to the relatively untouched nature, the Finnish archipelago offers a truly unique sailing experience. You can choose from short day cruise island hopping, to longer haul sailings to the Åland islands or the Stockholm archipelago. All this within the reach of a one week cruise with our Swan 51.
Our skippers and crews are very knowledge about the different options and are always willing to share their “hidden gems” to ensure that your sailing experience in Finland will be a truly unforgettable one.
