Travel to Åland

Travel to Åland

There are plenty of departures and different travel options daily from Stockholm, Helsinki, Turku and Tallinn to Åland. A boat trip through the archipelago with food, music and other entertainment can be a true experience. Are you in a hurry? Traveling by airplane only takes a half-hour.

By ferry, air or own boat

The ferries are actually more like cruise liners. Most travellers from abroad are surprised to find that such enormous vessels operate among such small islands. The boats run several times a day. They have restaurants, entertainment and taxfree shops on board. Tickets are surprisingly cheap, particularly considering they are floating shopping and entertainment palaces.

The shortest route from Sweden leaves from Grisslehamn or Kapellskär outside Norrtälje and takes two hours. From Stockholm there are several route variations. From Finland you can either travel on the smaller archipelago ferries or on the ferries from Turku, Naantali and Helsinki. If you are travelling from Estonia you would opt for Tallink Silja from Tallin.

For travellers from Finland, the beautiful sea route by Ålandstrafiken’s ferries is also an alternative, especially if you plan to visit one of the six Åland archipelago municipalities. The archipelago ferries depart from Osnäs or Galtby near Turku. The voyage takes you via the Åland archipelago islands to Hummelvik in Vårdö (Northern Line) or Långnäs in Lumparland (Southern Line) on the main island. Book your voyage with the archipelago ferries by calling Ålandstrafiken tel: +358 18 525 100. Especially in the summer it’s important to make your reservations well in advance.

Flying to Åland is a quick and convenient alternative. Your flight is via Helsinki or Stockholm. It takes just half an hour from Stockholm/Arlanda (Sweden) with NextJet and less than an hour from Helsinki/Vanda (Finland) with Finnair (Flybe Finland). Once you are in Åland, the international airport is just five minutes by car from central Mariehamn.
