Thanks Badger, I will check those out.
Yes, I know the islands are culturally Swedish, no worries !!! I even thought about posting this in the Sweden forum, but figured then someone would reproach me for asking about Finnish territory in the wrong place !!! (And no worries about my trying to speak Finnish in any event — even my rustic Hungarian wouldn’t embolden me to try such a thing 😜)
If I go, I was planning on going via Stockholm but will check out the ferries to Eckero too if I am going to end up near there anyway.
I am sure at least part of the issue is that I am looking at lodging so late that better value-for-money places are already booked. I am happy to have a couple more places to check out thanks to you! And may have to put this in my pocket for a later trip, planned more in advance next time.
Thank you so much !
