In case you have serious difficulty in finding a suitable travel connection that allows you to use the SCAPE-transportation, please inform us.


Traveling to Helsinki by air

Most Scapers will probably fly to Helsinki-Vantaa Airport. Finnair, SAS and Norwegian Air Shuttle provide most of this airport's connections to other countries.


Traveling to Finland by ferry from Stockholm

Some Scandinavian Scapers may prefer the ferry from Stockholm to Turku. Tallink Silja Line and Viking Line each offer a night and a day journey to both cities. The same companies offer a connection from Stockholm directly to Helsinki once a day (night journey).

Baltic Scapers may feel tempted by the short distance from Tallinn, which is abridged by Tallink Silja Line several times a day and by Viking Line and Eckerö Line two times per day.


Advise after ferry travel to Turku

When traveling from Stockholm to Turku by ferry one can continue either by bus to Helsinki city centre or Helsinki-Vantaa Airport or by train to Helsinki city centre.


What if you cannot catch the special SCAPE-transportation bus or if you missed it?

Only if there is no possibility at all to catch the special SCAPE-transportation on Thursday or in case you missed it, the best alternative is to take a bus from Helsinki city centre or Helsinki-Vantaa Airport to the town of Lammi. This journey is offered several times per day and takes between 2 and 3 hours depending on the connection. Most connections require a transfer in either Lahti or Hämeenlinna. Since Lammi Biological Station lies 5 km from Lammi town, we need to pick you up by car.

In case you know beforehand that you cannot catch the special SCAPE-transportation, please inform us as soon as possible.

In case you missed the special SCAPE-transportation, call Niek (+358 465423935).

We would like to emphasise again that this scenario is an exception for those who have no option to catch the special SCAPE-transportation due to necessarily late arrival in Helsinki or for those who missed the SCAPE-transportation due to travel delays.


Traveling to Lammi by car

For traveling to Lammi Biological Station by car, you can find travel directions on the station's website.
