We were staying a short walk away from Market Square, so it was an easy walk for us to the dock area to catch the ferry for the short 20/25 minute or so journey across to the fortress, with one interim stop in each direction....More

Costing about 10 Euros return it is a great way to get to Suomenlinna. Running every 20 minutes the journey is itself a pleasure as you see Helsinki and nearby islands. Suomenlinna is the third stop. The journey there takes about 30 minutes and about...More

Situated near the market at the harbour this is a great way to get around the islands. Reminded me a bit of the water taxi boats in Austria. Very efficient punctual and value for money.

Buy the island hopping ticket to go see the three islands. It is 8€ per adult and runs regularly. We only made it to two of the islands and enjoyed Vallisaari the most. Suomenlinna was crowded and busy. We still had a good time but...More
