How to get to Finland

There are over twenty airports dotted around the country, but you’re most likely to arrive at Helsinki Vantaa Airport, which is the main hub for international flights. British Airways, Norwegian and Scandinavian Airlines fly into Helsinki with routes offered from most major European cities. Finnair, the national carrier, is also worth checking out. Ferries arrive from Tallinn (Estonia) and Stockholm (Sweden) at Helsinki and Turku; contact either Tallink Line or Viking Line for tickets and timetables. Another increasingly popular route into the country is overland by train from St Petersburg to Helsinki, which thanks to a new high-speed rail link takes under three and a half hours.
