How to get to Turku

By a plane

There are direct flights from from Helsinki (Finnair), Stockholm (SAS), Riga (AirBaltic), Gdansk (WizzAir). A viable option is also to fly to Helsinki-Vantaa airport and take a train or a bus from the airport to Turku (see below.)

The bus number 1 connects the Turku airport with the market square (Kauppatori) and the port, the ticket price 3€ is paid to the driver. A taxi to the city center costs approximately 20€.

By a train

There are trains from Helsinki and Tampere almost every hour, see VR’s pages for more information.

By a bus

There are several bus companies operating in Finland: Matkahuolto, Pohjolan Liikenne, OnniBus and Åbus have connections to Turku. The first two mentioned operate a line from Helsinki-Vantaa airport. Note that there is a 0 minute bus transfer in Espoo which should not be worried about — the buses wait for each other.

You may try out the aggregated seach engine (finnish only). The bus tickets can be purchased from the driver but online prices might be cheaper.

By a ferry

Turku is also accessible by a ferry from Stockholm which sails through the beautiful archipelago. More information can be found at at Viking Line and Tallink Silja pages.
