I am traveling to Aland during the first week in April and I am looking for a place to stay for three nights. The type of accommodation doesn't really matter, although a 5 star hotel is not for me. I am having somewhat of a hard time on Trip Advisor when I type those dates in, and Air BnB seems a little expensive. Is that time of year normally busy in Mariehamn? Will there be any issue showing up and just looking for a place to stay?

- What are the prices to Aland from Stockholm on the ferry?
- What is the frequency of the ferries?
-Will anything even be open this time of year? (The guide books show stuff opening in May)
-Is getting around this time of year easy on the island?

I’ve read in ‘Metro’ daily about Helsinki – apparently there is a tour into Fazer factory, and one can sign in. I looked up the café site, and there is no mentioning any such tour, in fact, the site is Finnish and Swedish only.
