If you want to spend a day in the Suomenlinna sea fortress, this is the ticket for you. The ticket is valid for 12 hours from the time it is first used. It is valid only on the ferry to Suomenlinna and it does not include a right to transfer to other public transport modes.
Suomenlinna tickets are loaded on single-charge cards and they are sold at R-kiosks in the Helsinki metropolitan area, VR’s booking offices, Stockmann department stores, K-Citymarkets, Prisma stores, Helsinki City Tourist Office, Tourist information at the Helsinki-Vantaa airport and Travel Card service points in Helsinki, Espoo and Vantaa.
Show the single-charge card to the card reader when boarding the ferry. The area of validity is registered on the card at the moment of purchase and thus, you only need to show the card to the reader without pressing any of the buttons. If your ticket is valid, the card reader emits an audible and a green light appears. The ticket is valid from the time it is first used. To check the expiry time of your ticket, hold the card on the reading area of the card reader.
You can also purchase a paper ticket from ticket machines at Kauppatori and Katajanokka ferry terminals. These ticket machines also sell tickets for groups of 2 - 31 passengers (adults or children). The whole group can travel under one ticket. The size of the group (i.e. number of people), fare per person and the total price are printed on the ticket.
Paper tickets are valid from the moment of purchase.
