Important information for everyone travelling by train

For everyone travelling to Rovaniemi by train, it is important to note that the VR rail traffic does not operate normally on 16th and 17th October. Due to railway work between Rovaniemi and Oulu, all night trains from Southern Finland are cancelled, as well as day traffic on 17.10. The train connections operate normally again from 18.10, so the returning traffic is possible also by train.

In case you need to book alternative flights or buss tickets, we recommend doing it as soon as possible, since the tickets are sold out quickly due to autumn half-term.
