Föri

Turku
A truly unique city ferry serves the Aura River, taking passengers from Turku to Åbo and back again in just a few minutes.

Föri (comes from the Swedish word färja) is a light traffic ferry that has served the Aura River for over a hundred years, first taking passengers in 1904. Beloved by Turku citizens, the little orange ferry runs nonstop back and forth across the Aura River approximately 500 metres after the last bridge heading toward the mouth of the river.
 
Föri takes around a minute and a half to cross the river and starts back when the passengers have been replaced with new ones. Föri takes passengers between Tervahovinkatu (East bank) and Wechterinkuja (West bank). Föri also operates in the winter if the river ice allows.
