The archipelago route to Åland

The archipelago route is a ferry connection in between the main Åland island, the archipelago islands and the Finnish mainland. The route also connects the islands with each other.

If you travel from Finland, the archipelago ferries are an alternative to the larger passenger ferries. The archipelago route also makes it possible for you to discover the Åland archipelago by means of island hopping.


The archipelago route is maintained by the Åland government and the communication department’s sea traffic authority.

Ålandstrafiken controls bookings, ticket sales and general information and also the administration of public transport in Åland.


The archipelago ferries' timetables can be found in Skärgårdsguiden. The brochure can be obtained at, for example, the Åland Tourist Information at Storagatan 8 and from Ålandstrafiken at Styrmansgatan 1 in Mariehamn.

You may also download the brochure as a pdf file to your computer:

Remember that there may be changes in the timetable, for example due to hard weather, technical problems or emergency transportations.


Remember to pre-book your ride well in advance, especially in high season in the summer. Even if you are just two persons with bicycles it may be a problem to get onboard in high season.

You can make your reservation several months beforehand but it is important to cancel if you can't come. Note! After three unused bookings that have not been cancelled you are forbidden to book for a year.

You must be in the harbour at latest 15 minutes before departure. Otherwise you may lose your reserved place.
