Travel

From Finland

The convention organizes a group trip to Åcon on ferry from Turku (Silja Line). The per-person price includes a deck place on the ferry; you can also purchase a cabin via us (up to four persons in a cabin). The convention will book one cabin for storing luggage, so you don’t have to keep your bags with you on the ferry.

The ferry from Turku (Silja Galaxy) leaves 8.15 on Thursday May 17. The ferry will arrive in Mariehamn at 13.35. On Sunday May 20 the ferry (Silja Europa) leaves 13.45 from Mariehamn and arrives in Turku at 19.15.

You can also book meals with us, or arrange your own if you prefer.

The prices for the return trip are:

  • 12 €/person (deck place) or
  • 62 €/cabin (1–4 persons)

There is a group breakfast on Thursday (10 €) and a lunch buffet on both Thursday and Sunday (24 € each) for those who want to book meals together with the trip.

If you want, you can bring a car (46 €) or a bicycle (20 €) with you – please specify when booking the trip.
