Travel Forums Europe From Copenhagen to Helsinki and back... How?

Hello, guys!
I am about to make my Eurotour but as it often happens, the best guide is not a book, but a person. Could anyone tell me the most efficient way to get from Helsinki to Copenhagen? Shall I take a ferry? Any other safe means?
Thank you all! Andrei, Minsk

Depends on your requirements and budget.

Flying is the cheapest, and, obviously, fastest. There are several airlines that fly route and if you book ahead, you can travel cheaply.

There is no ferry from Copenhagen to Helsinki. To get the ferry, you either have to travel to Stockholm (via bus or train) and then get the boat, or travel to Rostock in Germany (bus, or train via Hamburg, or bus via Nykøbing Falster and Gedser in southern Denmark, then ferry to Rostock, or via Malmö or Trelleborg in Sweden and ferry to Rostock).

The most logical of those options is via Stockholm.

If time isn't an issue, you can go longer ways around (such as all the way around the Gulf of Bothia, via Haparanda), though these start costing more money unless you hitchhike.

Hi Andrei....I just checked and it showed that Air Baltic flies that route. If you expand your search to surrounding airports you might get a few more airline options. Good luck!

Try a flight with Blue1, this is the cheap daughter company of SAS. I think that will be the fastest and cheapest way to get there.

If you want to see something along the road, and you have time enough, you can travel to Stockholm. But it is also fun to make a visit to the Aland Islands. (Mariahavn), and then continue to Stockholm, and then by train to Copenhagen. (it is possible that you would need to take ferry from Türkü, but I am not sure about that)
