    Hello, is there public transportation from the airport to Tornio? Thank you
  • There are local buses that run from Luleå Airport into the city center every hour.
    From the center, other buses go to Haparanda approximately every two hours.
    I think it is about the same between Oulu, Kemi and Torneå.

    Hello, where is this congress held? At Stadshotell?

    br Kimmo
  • The congress will be on Changed to Park Hotel (Lappari) in Torneå. It is 2.5 km between Haparanda City Hotel and Park Hotel.
    There will be buses between Haparanda City Hotel and Park Hotel 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.
