    Hello, where is this congress held? At Stadshotell?

    br Kimmo
  • The congress will be on Lappari in Torneå.
    It is 2.6 km between Haparanda City Hotel and Lappari.
    There will be buses between Haparanda City Hotel and Lappari in Tornio. It takes about 7 minutes.

    I will be traveling from the US. Do you have recommendations on best airports or trains to use to get to the conference? Many thanks
  • Hello Mark
    and all the rest of you who will travel to Haparanda / Torneå.
    The best part is to travel by air. Nearest is Kemi in Finland approx. 30 minutes from Haparanda / Torneå. We also have Luleå in Sweden which is approx. 1 h and 40 min from Haparanda / Torneå.
    If you stay longer than the congress, I recommend that you rent a car. The communications are not what they should be up here in the north. If you rent a car, you can enjoy more of the landscape here in the north.
    Welcome to Midnight sun and sauna.

Transport to Congress
We have four airports around us and two routes to Europe and the world via Stockholm or Helsinki. The airports are in Luleå(Lulea), Kemi, Rovaniemi and Oulu.
SAS and Norwegian goes to Lulea and Finnair to Kemi, Rovaniemi and Oulu.  
The best way to travel around in Swedish and Finish Lapland is to rent a car. The traffic is very calm and you may meet some reindeers. Transfer can also be arranged.
