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 from Stockholm, on your way you can also enjoy the most beautiful archipelago in the coast of Turku. The ferries travelling between Turku and Stockholm take hundreds of cars, so it is possible to bring your own car with you.

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