As far north as you can go on Åland, the autonomous group of islands tucked away between Sweden and Finland in the Baltic Sea, there you will find Havsvidden Resort. This leisure complex which hosts a hotel, restaurant, bar and guest harbour was created in the late 80’s by the Åland legendary entrepreneur Torvald “Thusse” Eriksson and his wife Birgitta. The idea was to offer guests and visitors a place where body and soul could relax in a unique environment inspired by the anthroposophical spirit of Rudolf Steiner. Thusse and Birgitta have since long left their creation but we try to keep their passion alive through our company Havsvidden AB.
During the 2000’s Havsvidden AB has expanded its property portfolio with so-called Cliff houses and Suite houses which are spectacular villas with one to three bedrooms located on the cliffs with an outstanding sea view. Havsvidden Resort, which sprang from the original small hotel complex, can today accommodate up to 150 guests for conferences, exhibits, celebrating birthdays and weddings or just having a good relaxing time. Here you will find everything you could possibly want, a restaurant, bar, lounge, meeting rooms, bathhouse with sauna, classical massage therapist and northern Åland’s only guest harbour with fuelling facilities
In 2021 this unique Resort is expanding with 17 hotel apartments in 2 buildings that blend well into the landscape. Each apartment will have a stunning sea view through large panoramic windows. Sea views can also be enjoyed from the sauna as well as from the terrace, the jacuzzi and the glazed conservatory. The apartments will be constructed in the spring of 2021 and ready for occupancy in the summer. The form of ownership is called Bostads Aktie Bolag (BAB). This is a common model of owning properties in Finland. The owners possess shares related to a specific property, in this case a dedicated apartment. This model allows non-Finnish citizens to own properties on Åland island where rules are generally strict with foreign ownership.
Havsvidden Living offers modern leisure living. With easy access to several transport options such as ferry boat ride from Stockholm Sweden or by air via Stockholm Arlanda Airport (Leap Air). From Finland, Finnair with its extensive network offers several daily connections via Vantaa Airport in Helsinki. There are also daily ferry connections from Turku and Helsinki.
An apartment at Havsvidden Living will not only bring income to its owner when rented out through the resort, it will also give the owner the luxury of arriving to a warm and welcoming apartment, cleaned and ready for use. The beds are already made, the owner can just unlock the door, step inside and the enjoy the cozy home.
On top of the red granite cliffs, adjacent to the reception and restaurant area and a stone’s throw away from the sea, new hotel apartments are designed with 1 or 2 bedrooms. The buildings show clear resemblance with the existing Cliff house architecture. The complex harmonizes very well with nature and the surrounding landscape.

Åland is not a large island. Everything is close by. Here you are only a few hours away from Stockholm, Turku or Helsinki, but you are far from everyday stress. It is easy to find the hidden gems of the islands and you will experience a lot in a short period of time. From one minute to another the scenery changes from an agricultural landscape with billowing fields and apple plantations to a dramatic coastline with red cliffs shaped by the sea during thousands of years.
