Helsinki Stockholm Ferry reviews

  • "Going home"

    After the holidays we had to go home again. We chose to go by car so a crossing on a ferryboat was inevitable. We boarded in Helsinki on the Silja Symphony. A huge boat. Because the crossing took 17 hours we hooked a cabin to sleep as well. Although below the cardeck the noise was not to bad. The Beds were great and a privat bathroom made it even better. I can recommend this to anyone.

  • "Overnight from Helsinki to Stockholm"

    Larger cabin than we expected, comfortable beds, decent sized shower. Food was excellent - we will definitely do this again!

  • "worked great for us"

    For a family of six with small children, the ferry was a great fit. Buffet prices were very high, but the duty-free store was very reasonable. We got by on snacks because we had dinner before departure from Helsinki. The experience, overall, was great for us. The family cabin, with foldout sofa and fold down bunks worked great. The kids enjoyed the onboard entertainment and a stroll around the top deck. I would recommend the ferry to anyone making a trip around the Baltic instead of a cruise liner experience.

Helsinki Guide

Located in the Uusimaa region of southern Finland, on the shores of the Gulf of Finland, is the city of Helsinki. The capital of Finland is roughly 80 km to the north of Talin in Estonia, 400 km to the north of Stockholm in Sweden and 300 km to the west of St Petersburg in Russia. Helsinki is widely regarded as one of the major cities in northern Europe and is the country's main hub for politics, finance, commerce and culture.

Popular visitor attractions in the city include Helsinki's largest museum, the National Museum of Finland. It contains a large collection of historical artefacts that date back to prehistoric times through to the present day. The museum's home, a neomedieval castle, is also a popular tourist attraction in its own right. The Helsinki City Museum, the Finnish National Gallery and the Design Museum are three other museums in the city that are worth visiting.

Helsinki's port, the largest in Finland and the second largest in the Nordic countries, has three harbours and 6 passenger terminals. Ferry services using the port depart to Stockholm in Sweden, Travemunde in Germany and Talin in Estonia.

Stockholm Guide

Stockholm is the capital city of Sweden and is made up of a series of islands located on Sweden's eastern coast and is widely regarded as one of the world's most beautiful cities. There are many picturesque scenes to be had in the city and its skyline is reflected in the waters of Lake Malaren and enjoys vibrant blue summer skies whilst in the winter the city is often covered by snow and is scattered by lovely lights.

The extremely modern city is known for its design, fashion and lively nightlife but has still managed to preserve its roots in the Old Town area known as the Gamla Stan, where you can quite easily lose yourself in history. The city's maze of cobbled streets is based around the Stortorget, the Big Square, whilst to the south and on a further island, the Sodermalm, offers a definite bohemian atmosphere with its many galleries and historic residences and lovely waterfront.

From the city's port, ferries depart to destinations in Finland, Russia and the Baltic States.
