Stockholm-Riga by Sea: Cheap Trips With Tallink-Silja

Baltic cruiseferry giant Tallink-Silja is currently offering one-way overnight ferry rides from Stockholm to Riga for as little as SEK100 (€10.90; $14.80)!

Ferries depart from Stockholm’s Frihamnen terminal, which can easily be reached and lord knows how many banana cocktails—later, the mammoth cruiseferry pulls into Riga’s Juras Pasazieru Stacija (Sea Passenger Terminal), less than one km north of Riga’s old town. In addition to being entirely manageable by foot, Riga’s rosy cheapness will heal memories of those SEK50 hot chocolates purchased back in Stockholm.

Here’s another tip: from Riga, other Baltic capitals can be reached by bus for next to nothing. By “next to nothing” we mean to suggest €5 to Tallinn and to €6 to Vilnius.

About the author

Native New Yorker Miranda fondly recalls family trips to Europe, which featured formative events like spending a night on the roof of an overbooked Greek hotel and sampling the culinary wonders of horse meat. But it was while riding a pony through a patch of wild blueberries in Iceland that she realized she wanted to be an explorer. As an undergrad, Miranda bicycled across the US and lived for several months in Berlin. Nowadays she obsesses over Baltic countries and the plump cream-smothered dumplings to be found there. Fluent in German, she does freelance translation and writes educational material for children.

Sounds like a ‘ferry-tale’ more like. No link, no info, no use.

I used this route. it was nice journey but I had to share room with 2 another people. it was 35 euro. not 10 euro at all.! and If you want to book your own room it is much more expensive.
