Stockholm - Helsinki

Emma @ 13-02-2008 18:22

Or in fact, Stockholm to anywhere in Finland!!
I have tried to book on the Tallinksilja ferry, and they are booked up on the two days I need to travel (20th or 21st, or maybe even the 19th). I need to travel from Helsinki to Rostock shortly afterwards, but I can't book this until I know I can get to Helsinki.

I have heard there is a bus route? How can I do this and how much does it cost?

I don't want to be stuck in Sweden for half my trip!!! Already my hostel booking has been messed up!

other possibilities are:

Stockholm-Turku by VikingLine: you get a 50% discount on the normal price, so it is for you between 5 and 20 EUR one-way

Stockholm-Helsinki by VikingLine: you get a 50% discount on the normal price, so it is for you between 17 and 25 EUR one-way

or if you do not want to travel via Helsinki, go down to Trelleborg (Sweden) and take a ferry of the company Scanlines. it is about 21 EUR one-way to Rostock, but maybe you even get a discount. ask for it !!

if you want to go by bus from Sweden to Finland you need to travel by train from Stockholm to Boden. There you change to the bus (a bus for this connection is always in front of the station. but hurry.)

Länstrafiken (Norrbotten): Boden - Lulea - Haparanda
Veljekset Salmela: Haparanda - Tornia/Kemi

You have to change the bus at the border, but the bus drivers are very nice and helpful and the passengers as well. You often meet other railers on this connection. 🙂

then take the train down from Kemi to Helsinki...

you need for this tour about 2 days !!! 🙂 but it is a nice tour !! you see a lot of nice nature !!

for train connections use:

I hope I could help you, all the best,
