Transport

Help File
Getting there and away
You can travel here by air or train, and even by ferry. Lots of options, you might want to browse the net.

Getting around
Easiest transport is defenitely by train. Distances are long in Finland, and even though sometimes you can get by with a bus and even with your bike, usually it is better to rely on our high quality railways. Go to VR Passenger Service to learn more. Sometimes flying costs the same as travelling by train, so check for example Blue1 for offers.

Air
Helsinki-Vantaa Airport -website also provides a list of Finnish airports and other good info about flying in here. Cheap flights: Ryanair (they fly from London Stanstedt,Riga and Frankfurt Hahn to Tampere) Blue1 (they fly from eg.Hamburg,Stockholm,Amsterdam,Berlin,Copenhagen,Brussels etc. to several places in Finland)

Train
VR Passenger Service is the Finnish railway organisation.

Bus

Finland, being a land full of lakes, has many opportunities for boating your way around here. This obviously works only in the summertime.
