Arriving and accommodation in Turku


The best way to get to Turku from Europe is to travel through Stockholm (a flight from Stockholm to Turku takes less than an hour, while a ship travels the distance in one day or night). You can take a direct flight to Turku from Riga and Gdańsk, among other places.

You can also easily travel to Turku from elsewhere in Finland. It only takes a couple of hours to travel to Turku from Tampere or Helsinki by bus or train, and the same amount of time from Oulu by plane.

If you come with your own boat or on a cruise ship travelling from Stockholm, you can also enjoy the most beautiful archipelago in the world on the way, located off the coast of Turku. The ships travelling to Turku are ferries which fit hundreds of cars, so you can bring your car with you.

From Russia, you can get to Turku easily by car, following the E18 highway, or by train via Helsinki.

Turku also has its own comprehensive public transport services within the city.
