It is full of small historical villages, old lighthouses, ancient manors and stone churches which are uncommon in Scandinavia.
You will discover the archipelago circuit by following the small fun roads, which are making happy a big number of Finnish bikers. You will also drive the famous King's Road from Helsinki to Kaarina. When you are in the archipelago and on small ferries you will experience hundreds of small islands.
