Our recommended route to Åland and Käringsund (if not flying direct to Mariehamn, Åland)
Try to get to Stockholm (by air Arlanda, Bromma, Skavsta) or train Stockholm.
There are several ferry connections, companies and ports but the shortest is Eckerölinjen. This will include a bus transfer from Stockholm (Cityterminalen) to the ferry port at Grisslehamn. Ferry will arrive at Berghamn, in Eckerö on Åland, only 3 kms from Käringsund. It is also possible to walk direct from the the ferry along the maritim path (only 1,5 kms really nice walk, if weather ok) to Käringsund Resort & Conference.
You book bus shuttle and ferry here: https://www.eckerolinjen.se/en/book/route/journey/?section=boattrip
Sunday 23.8 there are ferry 3 departures from Grisslehamn: 10:00 / 15:00 / 20:00
Bus departures 2,5 hrs beforehand.
When you arrive on the island
If you arrive by plane: there is no public transport to the summer school location. You can take a taxi from the airport to the summer school, please for the Käringsund resort. Taxi fares will be between 60 and 75 EUR. As many of you will arrive at the same time, can we suggest to look out for other participants and organise a shared taxi?
The same applies when arriving by boat.
Arrival at Käringsund resort
The registration desk will be manned on Sunday 23 August from 5pm onwards. There you will be given your keys to your cabin and a welcome pack.
