Ferries to Estonia

Estonia is a North European country situated in the Baltic region. Estonian, closely related to Finnish, is the dominant language and the largest cities of the country are Tallinn, Tartu, Narva, Kohtla Järve and Pärnu.

Estonia is culturally unique and during your visit you will encounter a contrast between the old medieval buildings and the modern colourful urban landscapes.

The stunning Baltic coastline, rugged landscapes, many historic sights and the modern urban features make up Estonia’s eclectic mix of attractions that many tourists enjoy each year.

Estonia’s location in the Baltic Sea makes this an ideal destination for those arriving by ferry. The major Estonian ports are Tallinn and Paldiski with crossings offered from Finland, Sweden, the Aland Islands and Russia.

The shortest and most popular ferry crossing is from Helsinki in Finland, sailing across the Gulf of Finland to Tallinn. With more than ten sailings a day and crossings operated by multiple ferry companies, you can travel from capital city to capital city in around 2 hours.

In addition to crossings from Finland, Tallinn is also reachable from Stockholm, St Petersburg and Mariehamn (Aland). Ferries also depart the Swedish port of Kapellskar and sail to Paldiski with DFDS Seaways. This is a faster alternative to the Stockholm Tallinn ferry service.

With its location in the Baltic Sea, it is also possible to travel to neighbouring Latvia or Lithuania for additional options and travel on to Estonia from there.

Ferry crossings to Estonia are operated by some of the most luxurious ferries available and feature facilities that you’d expect to find on a cruise ship so getting there should be a pleasurable experience.

Estonia reviews

  • "pleasant journey worth the while"

    A pleasant journey much much more comfortable than what a train or a flight could give and which is convenient, fun and relaxing. The journey is really an experience worth the while.

  • "Autumn return to Tallinn"

    Ship on time both ways, very easy to leave & to board at Tallinn. Very easy to book on Direct Ferries Comfortable & good value Long walkway to ship at Helsinki Crossing very rough going over, but not the fault of the ship! Personally I would prefer more rest areas, most of the seats in or around café or bar. But I will be more than happy to travel on this ship, on this route in the future.
