Which Railpass Option of Traveling to Finland is for You?

Are you Visiting from a non-European country?

See Southern Europe and Scandinavia at the same time. Buy your own Eurailpass ticket for the amount of time you need to be in each country. Eurailpass gives you a traveling window - a time to travel within a specified period of time. The traveling length is from two weeks to three months. Take advantage of the Eurailpass, for instance, purchase a Two-Country Eurail Pass in Sweden. This enables you to travel by train in Stockolm, or anywhere else in Sweden then take the ferry to Finland. The ferry trip is an additional cost (but you do get a discount for ferry travel with Eurail).

You are not bound to take the ferry from Stockholm. Consider it an option to travel to Northern Sweden gaining access to Finland at the North-Western corner without a ferry crossing at all. After this the same ticket would allow you to travel around in Finland by train.

Keep in mind to use your Two Country Eurail Pass 5-10 days in a 30-day period!

Experience classic Europe and Northern Europe

On the journey northward you may want to rail through classic Southern European cities along the tracks before entering Northern Europe! If so then buy the Global Eurail Pass. The benefit is flexible train travel into 22 European countries during a given period.
