Welcome to the Archipelacon group travel from Turku and Stockholm to Mariehamn and from Mariehamn to Helsinki, Turku and Stockholm. Below you’ll find some important information about the travel.

If you are already in Turku, please try to be at the harbour earlier to avoid everybody arriving at the same time.

Come pick up your tickets from Archipelacon staff in the Silja terminal before driving your car or bicycles to the car check-in. If you are arriving on the first train from Helsinki with your bicycles, you will make it, but please let us know beforehand, so we can get your tickets ready.
