Getting to LAHTI
-
From Estonia (and Sweden) you can come to Finland by a ship. There are many options for ferries.
- By airplane, choose Helsinki airport https://www.finavia.fi/en/airports/helsinki-airport because connections are much better from Helsinki airport, than from city of Turku or city of Tampere.
- From Helsinki airport you can jump in to a bus or a train: http://visitlahti.fi/en/arriving
- In Lahti you can choose taxi, but hotels are so near, that you might want to walk, as everybody else does.
- You don’t need any local bus in Lahti, but if you want to travel by it: http://www.lsl.fi/english/
- Antti Prepula is ready to assist you, if you need some help. Don't hesitate to ask.
