The convention organizes a group trip to Åcon on ferry from Turku (Tallink Silja). The per-person price includes a deck place on the ferry; you can also purchase a cabin via us (up to four persons in a cabin). The convention will book one cabin for storing luggage, so you don’t have to keep your bags with you on the ferry.
The ferry from Turku (Tallink Silja Galaxy) leaves 8:15 on Thursday May 9th. The ferry will arrive in Mariehamn at 13:35. On Sunday May 12 the ferry (Tallink Silja Baltic Princess) leaves 13:45 from Mariehamn and arrives in Turku at 19:15.
You can book your meals with us, or arrange your own if you prefer.
The prices for the return trip are:
- 12 €/person (deck place) or
- 62 €/cabin (1–4 persons)
There is a group breakfast on Thursday (10 €) and a lunch buffet on both Thursday and Sunday (24 € each) for those who want to book meals together with the trip.
If you want, you can bring a car (46 €) or a bicycle (20 €) with you – please specify when booking the trip.
