Private Islands for Sale in Finland

Finland is a nation defined by its islands and waterways. Over 188,000 islands exist within the country’s borders – most of which are entirely uninhabited. ~76,000 of these islands are larger than 0.5 hectares.

Finland’s islands are divided between its coastline – particularly to the southwest – and its inland waterways. The country’s moniker as the land of rivers and islands is no idle boast.

The climate in Finland is characterized by long, cold winters and mild summers. The northernmost regions – namely Lapland – stay cold year round.

Most private islands in Finland are sold as freehold investments – granting full ownership to the purchaser.

We’ve listed 13 private islands in the Finland market. The most affordable island on offer has a valuation of €149,000, whilst the most expensive holds a €4,800,000 price tag. The acreage of said islands ranges from 3 acres to 256 acres.

Just one hour by boat and car from Turku – Finland’s second largest city – the island of Säckilot holds much promise. In light of the island’s wealth of guest housing, the value of its location and access routes cannot be understated.

In 2008, two guest accommodations were built on the island, with 14 guest rooms being distributed between the two.

Furuskär Island (SOLD)

  • Location: Varsinais-Suomi, Pargas
  • Size: ~2.5 acres, ~1 hectares
  • Description: 33km from shore, 33km W of Turku, 46km SW of Turku Airport
  • Ownership: Freehold
  • Development: Developed
  • Listed on: Vladi Private Islands
  • Map: See on Google Earth

Like many of the Finnish islands on the market, Furuskär Island can be found between the Swedish and Finnish mainlands – a geographic location that enjoys milder weather by virtue of mainland shelter. This alone makes Furuskär a strategic investment opportunity.

Still, Furuskär’s appeal continues to grow upon further assessment. The ~2.5-acre plot actually comprises two separate land masses – a primary island with a cabin, sauna house, and shed; and a near-adjoining rocky outcrop that features no official development.

Worth noting for investors: there is a possibility for further construction on the island, with permits for four more cabins having been previously obtained. Boating jetties have also been built, allowing for clean access on and off the island.

Given its locale, aesthetic, and existing developments, Furuskär is primed for investment.
