Wasaline has a brand new ferry which is operating on the route between Vasa in Finland and Holmsund around 20 min by car from Umeå. 

The weigh-in time at the competition hotel as well as the finishing time of the competition on Sunday are synced to match the ferry arrival and depature times. This is because we want all our Finnish wrestling friends to be able to come here and wrestle and get home on time for the Sunday ferry departure.


To book ferry tickets, check out the Wasaline website.



By train - the railway station is within walking distance from the competition hall and wrestling hotel.

The railway station in Umeå (Umeå järnvägsstation) is located in the centre of Umeå and just a couple of minutes away from the competition hotel.. There are both overnight trains and day trains from many parts of Sweden that stop in Umeå every day.
