How to get from Rovaniemi to Saariselka/Inari

Hi,

My friend and I are planning on visiting Inari in the 2nd week of September. We will be catching a train to Rovaniemi but are unsure how we can proceed from there to Inari.

Please could anyone guide us on how to travel this distance with regards to:

- mode of transport

- timings/timetable

- cost

Thanks in advance for your help!

Cheers,

Dee

With a bus about 3,5 - 4 hours. There are a few daily connections to Saariselkä. Cost is about 50 euros one way, if not eligible for any discounts.

For time tables see: http://www.matkahuolto.fi/en/

Use Rovaniemi for departure and Saariselka (not Inari) as destination.

You can buy a TrainBus ticket that will cover the whole journey to Saariselkä/Ivalo/Inari. You can find the timetables and prices in the VR journey search at http://www.vr.fi/en but you cannot buy the TrainBus tickets online. For this you'd have to contact the VR customer care or buy the tickets in the VR Booking Office at the railway station before boarding the train (allow enough time as the lines may be lengthy).
