“Föri”, the Free Favourite in Turku

A ride on Föri, a ferry for pedestrians, is a must if you are with children in Turku. It only takes a minute to cross the river and the ferry goes non-stop. The views are not bad for adults either, especially during a regatta. The pics are from the Gangut regatta (31.7-3.8.2014).

On the harbour side of the river there is also a playground and an ice cream booth close to the jetty, just to make the location even more tempting.

      1. You are right. I guess I listened to it on the radio far too many times, on a bad day. 🙂

        1. I guess it also depends on the way they say it? Some people take these things very seriously….

  2. I’ve always wanted to ride on a ferry! Especially one that leads to fun and ice cream!

    1. The flight to Finland is a small price to pay for a free ferry ride 😉
