The Åland Islands is a sweeping archipelago perched in the Baltic Sea. Finland’s smallest (and only Swedish speaking!) region, this island province is comprised of one large island, Fasta Åland, and over 6,500 skerries.

Since skerries are small, rocky islands, generally too small or harsh to be populated, most caches are placed on Fasta Åland, and among them is Sjökvarteret, our Geocache of the Week!
