Helsinki Market Square to Lonna

This cute little island, just 150 m long, is part of the Suomenlinna neighborhood, located between Helsinki’s Market Square and the Suomenlinna fortress island. FRS Finland´s waterbuses will take you to the Lonna according to the route schedule.

The water bus leaves from the Keisarinluodonlaituri pier at the Market Square. The departure pier is located between Suomenlinna HSL ferry and Korkeasaari ferry docks. The island is only 1,5 km from the mainland, so the journey takes just about 10 minutes.

Timetables can be found from FRS Finlands’ website.

You can arrive to Market Square with city bikes. City bike stations can be found very close to the water bus dock.

Guest dock

Lonna doesn’t have a guest dock so unfortunately no landing with private boats. The situation with the guest boat dock is not going to change anytime soon. You can take your own boat to the neighboring island of Suomenlinna, where you can eat at our restaurant Adlerfelt.

Lonna currently doesn’t have a guest dock so unfortunately no landing with private boats.

Accessibility on the island

Island’s terrain is generally easy to get around and distances between buildings are short. However it is good to keep in mind that the weather may vary and the terrain might be a bit bumpy at times. All the buildings are accessible. The accessible toilet is situated in the coffee shop & bar. Lonna’s public loft sauna’s washing area is accessible but up to the sauna area there will be nine steps.

Waterbus crew will be happy to help you board the ship and land. We’ll be happy to answer more questions about accessibility, when needed.
