Tallink Silja to offer Swedish travellers five special cruises from Stockholm to Höga Kusten in August and September

Tallink Silja AB, Tallink Grupp’s Swedish subsidiary, has announced that it will offer a number of new domestic special cruises to the Swedish market in late August and September, this time on a completely new route between Stockholm and the Swedish World Heritage site, the High Coast – Höga Kusten.

The cruises will depart from Stockholm on 21, 28 August and 4, 11 and 18 September 2020. Thereafter, additional departures may be added. Departures take place from Värtahamnen in Stockholm on Fridays at 16.00, Saturday is spent in Härnösand and the ship will arrive back in Stockholm on Sundays at 14.00.

The cruises will be operated with the company’s flagship vessel SILJA SYMPHONY. The cruises will go via Mariehamn and can thus offer tax-free shopping opportunities for the travellers.

Ticket sales for the Stockholm – Härnösand cruises will open on Friday, 31 July 2020.

“Höga Kusten is a destination that we have looked at for a long time. When the Corona crisis halted our normal operations and vessel traffic, we saw this as an excellent opportunity to think outside the box and test new destinations instead of simply waiting idly for the pandemic situation to improve. The cruises we have organised to Visby this summer have exceeded all our expectations and the feedback from the guests has been incredibly positive, so we are very excited to now be able to offer another new and sought-after destination to our customers,” Marcus Risberg, CEO of Tallink Silja AB commented.

“Höga Kusten is an increasingly popular travel destination and this summer, interest in the area has sky-rocketed, not least thanks to increased domestic tourism in Sweden. With SILJA SYMPHONY to Härnösand, we can offer a fantastic experience to all our customers, with world-class views, good food and drink, entertainment and duty-free sales. Sweden's Hurtigruten offers a fantastic and powerful natural world experience and the High Coast has a lot to offer, not least in the form of taste experiences, which our customers can also experience already on board the ship,” Risberg added.

In order to ensure the highest levels of passenger and crew safety on board, Tallink Silja has adopted new safety standards and processes with a number of concrete safety measures that apply in both terminals and on-board ships.

“Safety and a safe journey for both our guests and our crew is our highest priority. We have introduced a large number of safety measures on board that are well established and the new normal by now. We also continue to limit the number of passengers and it is possible to bring the car on board for a safe boarding and disembarkation without queues and congestion,” Risberg said.
