In April we booked the ferry from Travemünde to Helsinki. The start date of our trip is now fixed. We start August 17, 2016. First we ride by train to Travemünde and enter the ferry at 3 o’clock in the morning. After 30 hours on the ship we arrive in Helsinki. This is the plan for the first days.
The booking process on finnlines.com was a bit scary, because the system looks very old. But in the end we have a ticket for two person, two bikes, dinner, breakfast and a cabin for 550€. Not cheap but necessary for our trip.
We also looked for other options like riding by bus. But in the end we thought the ferry is the best option to transport the bikes.
