Finnlines will soon welcome foot passengers to its Sweden–Finland route – two departures a day

Finnlines ships, which operate from the Port of Kapellskär, north of Stockholm, via Långnäs on the Åland Islands to Naantali, close to Turku in Finland, offer travellers comfort and a genuine sea and archipelago spirit.

Today, Finnlines offers two daily departures seven days a week from Sweden via the Åland Islands to Finland. A sea voyage is a good option for those travelling because of work or those heading for a holiday. Buffet meals are included in the ticket and the sea voyage is peaceful and pleasant.

To board the ship, passengers must have a vehicle, which does not have to be a car, bicycles are allowed just as well. However, when two larger Superstar class ships enter the route as from September 2023, footpassengers can also embark the ship. Bicycles and cars can stay at home.

«I look forward to welcoming footpassengers on our fantastic new Superstar-ships in autumn 2023. The ships will add flexibility for our passengers on the route,» says Marco Palmu, Head of Passenger Services at Finnlines.

Travel comfort will improve further on the new ships. Passengers will have an opportunity to enjoy the archipelago through panorama windows, admire Nordic interior design and bathe in a genuine Finnish sauna. The ships have several cabin categories and the restaurants serve meals and drinks created by prominent cooks and bartenders.

«I can already promise that the travel experience on the new Superstar-ships will be something extra,» Marco Palmu adds.

Finnlines has two daily departures from each port on the Kapellskär–Långnäs–Naantali route. The sea voyage from Kapellskär to Naantali only takes 8–9 hours.
