Despite being a Finnish town, most of the locals predominantly speak Swedish, though almost everyone will be able to speak some English for the benefit of the many tourists. Many who visit Mariehamn do so in the knowledge they’ll find a relaxing coastal resort that offers some light activity; snorkelling and diving are two of the most popular pastimes in the town.
For those who don’t wish to spend their time in the crystal waters on the shoreline, there are three major museums all in close proximity to each other: The Aland Hunting and Fishing Museum, The Aland Maritime Museum and The Pommerm Museum Ship can all be visited in what would be a day filled with history and culture. Despite the wealth of history on offer, the highlight of Mariehamn almost always come from the Karingsund Game Safari – an experienced tour guide gives an insight into the fascinating life of the park’s animals.
