"We offer complete arrangements according to our customer's wishes," says Kirsti Karlsson at Ålandsresor. "Everything can be included - the journey, accommodations, food and drink, local transport, sightseeing, activities and festive arrangements. This is convenient and flexible; we can even pick up our guests with a bus from their homes or book trains or flights."

The specialities of the farm are crayfish, ostrich fillets grilled over charcoal and home baked apple pie with vanilla sauce for dessert.

The museum ship Pommern
The museum ship Pommern is moored in the western harbour of Mariehamn.

And if two decks are used there is enough space for up to 400 persons.

Unique Silverskär is situated in the northern archipelago of Åland, just five minute boat ride from the main island. The island is an old archipelago farmstead which has been carefully modernized. Today there are conferences and recreational activities on the island. Silverskär accepts only one group at a time, which means that the whole island will be at your disposal.

The conference department by the sea has enough space for 150 persons in the conference room while the newly renovated restaurant suits groups of up to 140 persons. Käringsundsbyn is located close to the Eckerö Linjen ferry harbour in Berghamn and offers lodging in 42 cottages.

There are plenty of options

"And don't forget the sport halls," adds Kirsti Karlsson. "For example Godbyhallen and Baltichallen are great for arrangements for a few hundred persons and Eckeröhallen offers space for thousands of people. In these halls you can arrange everything from exhibitions and trade fairs to seminars, courses and dancing. And almost everything has already been done, so there is much experience to draw from."

When you have found the perfect place, you can book catering through the establishment itself, through your travel agency or from one of the Åland restaurants. Naturally you may also book one of the restaurants for your feast.
"Hotell Arkipelag's large restaurant is for example suitable for most events," hints Kirsti. ÅSS Paviljongen can also arrange fine parties connected with to the shipping tradition, or unforgettable crayfish parties by the sea with the best autumn atmosphere.
