Travel & Transportation

The nearest airport is Helsinki-Vantaa, less than an hour away, from where there are regular buses to Lahti. It is very well served by rail and bus, from Helsinki centre, and enjoys good connections with Finland’s other main towns and cities, and is situated by the main motorways to the north, making it very accessible by car.

Getting around Lahti is easy as the efficient public transport system of buses radiates out from the Market Square, Kauppatori, in the city centre – although be aware that some buses may have one number but leave in opposite directions!
