Vaasa Umea Ferry reviews

  • "Nice scenery and a great ferry"

    We started our journey in Vasa, had booked two days in advance, car, caravan and four people. The loading went well and the system seemed to work well too. Bought dinner so soon restaurant / cafe opened. The food was ok, as was also the price.

  • "Quite good"

    I was satisfied with the on board service, specifically with the live music, that band was very good. I'd like to have that trip longer in the night time, cause party was over, when people were warmed up :)

  • "Comfortable crossing"

    To go by Wasa Line is convenient for me, a quick movement from Vaasa to Umeå with the car on board. Good food and friendly staff made the trip enjoyable. I could rest and relax before continuing the journey on the other side.

Vaasa Guide

The Finnish city of Vaasa is located on the west coast of the country and has a history that dates back to 1606 when it received its charter during the reign of Charles IX of Sweden. The city's name is taken from the Royal House of Vasa and although a Finnish city, many of the city's residents speak both Finnish and Swedish. The city is rightly regarded as being the cultural hub of the region as it has around 20 museums, a number of art galleries and a city orchestra. Popular events with tourists in the city are the Vaasa Choir Festival, the Korsholm Music Festival, the Jorma Panula Conducting Competition and Vaasa's popular Night of the Arts. Also in the city is the Terranova, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that introduces people to the Kvarken Archipelago. There is a nature trail which includes the Ojbergsmossen bog, a giant pot hole, a 'devils field' and a dwarf pine covered meteorite crater.

There are 8 sailings each week from the town's port to Umea with a crossing time of around 4 hours.
