Viking Line

Viking Line provides year round daily crossings between Finland, the Aland Islands and Sweden, and between Helsinki and Estonia.

The on-board experience provided by Viking Line is widely known to be one of the best among ferry operators, and not just those in the Baltic Sea region. The team at Viking Line likes seeing customers enjoying themselves on their ships, with the ships providing ample entertainment, good food and drink, and great shopping opportunities aboard each vessel. And with a fleet of luxurious ships, it’s no surprise that more than 6 million people choose to travel over the Baltic Sea with Viking Line each year.

Viking Line was a pioneer in passenger travel between the Finnish mainland, the Aland Islands and Sweden, when operations began in 1959. Then, the amalgamation of 3 companies, Vikinglinjen Ab, Rederi AB Slite and Alandsfajan, resulted in the market-leading shipping company now known as Viking Line. Ever since, over 50 vessels have sailed in the iconic red and white Viking Line colours, ranging from modest, second-hand car ferries of the early years to the impressive, state-of-the-art ships used today.

Viking Line Customer Reviews

  • "Helsinki to Tallinn and return with Viking Ferries."

    Although we were able to find seats we thought it unusual that there was no dedicated seating area. So we were in the nightclub with childrens entertainment and Bingo on the way out and sat in one of the cafes on the way back. Both legs were late morning on different though similar ferries. Terminal buildings at both ends are modern with good facilities. Paperwork from direct Ferries urges you to get to the terminal 90 minutes beforehand but Viking advised 45 minutes which was plenty. The ships do quite a quick turnaround and foot passengers board about 20 mins before sailing.
