Join us sailing in Finland and explore the worlds biggest archipelago on a shared sailboat. Meet new people and make new friends on board while learning how to handle the yacht. Enjoy long sunshine hours and never ending sunsets. Drop an anchor in a forested bay, walk through the mossy forests and pick up blueberries. Visit remote and public saunas, chop the wood, heat the sauna yourself and remember to make plenty of löyly. Sail from island to island and navigate through the maze of islets enjoying the soothing green forests around.
On this sailing trip we put the focus on experiencing nature, visiting only tiny guest harbours and trying to engage with the local communities. It never gets really dark in Finland in July so we can stay up and enjoy the orange glow above the horizon all night long. We take time to cook on open fire and learn a few words in the strangely sounding Finnish language. We visit remote islands with wooden piers where a public barbecue station as well as sauna is for us to use.
This sailing trip is for people who like to spend time in the nature, enjoy their time in the forests and sitting by the water. The ones who would like to practice navigation will be delighted after only one glance at the charts and the keen sailors will be happy to know that winds tend to be consistent and moderate throughout the summer. Social sailors should be thrilled about many possibilities to raft the yachts for the night and viking lovers will be excited to dine in the Viking hall.
As usual, no previous sailing experience is required, and the skippers shall introduce you to everything that is needed to handle the boat.
Explore The Finnish Archipelago Sea
The Finnish Archipelago offers thousands of uninhabited islands to explore. The horizon is rather flat but well forested, green and lush. We have plenty of opportunities to stop at tiny settlements and observe the islanders lifestyle which was led here for hundreds of years already.
This sailing trip is organized in northern latitudes, but don’t be afraid, we can expect pleasant temperatures in this early July. The average temperature in this season is around 20°C, however last year’s July was especially warm and pleasant in Finland (28°C). So along your swim wear, remember to pack a pullover for the evenings and a jacket for the rainy days. We take what we get and we make the most of the time we are given in this natural sailing paradise.
