|International E-road network|
European route E 12 is a road that is part of the International E-road network. It begins in Mo i Rana, Norway, transverses Sweden and ends in Helsinki, Finland, with a ferry line between Sweden and Finland. The part within Finland is Finnish national highway 3. The road is about 910 km (570 mi) in length.
The ferry line has one departure per day. It risks being cancelled because a commercial company operates it, and it is unprofitable because of low passenger figures. There is no government support, only domestic connections can get it, since it is a principle especially in Sweden that international travel should not be supported by taxpayers. However, the city of Vaasa supports the ferry route.
