Flying to Helsinki

Most international flights arrive in Helsinki, so flying to Helsinki and taking a bus or a train to Turku might be a viable option for participants coming from abroad.

By bus

They accept payment in cash (euros) and the most common bank and credit cards, Visa, Master Card and Euro Card. The route involves changing buses; the driver ensures that passengers and their luggage transfer to the other bus.
