FISHER'S ELDORADO

The Aland Islands are a group of islands midway in the Baltic Sea between Finland and Sweden. The Islands are an autonomous Swedish-speaking province of Finland and comprise some 6,500 islands and islets.

Land Islands

Fishing is on the open sea or in bays in the archipelago. Fly-fishing, trolling or spinning can be used. The Aland Islands offer numerous opportunities to fish virtually throughout the year. Each season has its own appeal. Sports fishing enthusiasts from around the world have been coming to the rich fishing waters of Aland for decades.
