One package to bring you all. The most desolate island, the lonely rock in the Baltic sea, the romantic scenery with traditional mopeds and buildings, nature, modern architecture as well as the archipelago near the city are all there for you.
Off season you can have it all, but without the tourists and crowds. We cannot guarantee your dream sky or rainy storm but we promise great and truly unique locations.
Is it a hassle? It depends where you want to go. If you are going to the outpost of the archipelago it could be, but in other places you can drive for 40 minutes, park several trailers nearby the location and walk. The diversity is one of many strengths of the archipelago. You will probably have to plan and give it time, but in some cases, with a good local location manager or scout to guide you you can be spontaneous.
Here is a short presentation of the three concepts. They are mearly examples and there is so much more. If you would like to read more and get into the mood we recommend that you download the flyers here and the manual here. They will give you inspiration and a framework to start with.
