Turku & Tallinn 2011: Turku – around the archipelago by bike | Adventure & Incentive | Finland | Scoop.it
Archipelago Trail is a four day circular self guided cycle tour which follows the Archipelago Ring Road, one of the most popular cycling routes in Finland.

 

You will ride through stunning archipelago sceneries. The islands are connected by numerous bridges and ferries. The peace and tranquility, particularly in the rugged outer islands, is a unique experience. Most of the roads’ surfaces are paved. The profile varies from fairly flat to rolling hills, especially the first day but altogether rather easy.
