Three sparkling weekends in the spirit of Christmas!

Welcome to the Åland Glimrar/Sparkling Åland event! Stroll around the Christmas markets and make unique Åland-made Christmas gift discoveries. Enjoy a cup of warm mulled wine with friends and family and let the Christmas spirit envelop you.

Åland Glimrar is coordinated by Skördefestens Vänner (“Friends of the Harvest Festival”). Enquiries: annika@skordefest.ax.

Finland’s paradise island, Åland, lights up like a lighthouse during Christmas time. You can travel here on a weekend trip easily by boat from both Helsinki, Turku, Stockholm, Kapellskär and Grisslehamn. 

The tradition of Christmas markets has existed for a long time on Åland. This year we wanted to collect all the Christmas events on the same site to show Åland as an attractive destination during winter.

The Christmas markets offer Christmas songs, shopping locally made products, Christmas atmosphere and of course mulled wine and gingerbread. 

Combine your trip with great food, many of the restaurants offer traditional buffé style Christmas tables. 

We wish you a warm welcome to the Christmas festivities on Åland!
