The Åland Islands have an east-west extent of 1.4 degrees longitude. Given the country's location in Northern Europe, this corresponds to about 79 kilometers. With such a small extent the course of the sun at different positions in the country hardly matters. The position of the sun in the west of the country deviates from that in the east only about 6 minutes. This means the sun rises and sets 6 minutes later in the west than in the east.
