Hel

Getting there & away

Hel can be reached by road and rail; even in the off-season there are fairly regular services by train and bus from Gdynia. When you arrive by rail, follow the brick footpath 500m to the town centre.

You can also get to Hel via the Ferry Tram (Tramwaj Wodny; www.ztm.gda.pl/ferry) from Gdańsk or Sopot.

Another waterborne option is the pleasure boat/hydrofoil from May to September from Gdańsk and Gdynia.

If you arrive by train and don’t feel like walking to the sights, electric-car operators tout for business at the train station as services arrive, and will happily drive you to Hel and back (5zł one way to the town centre, other places negotiable).
