I will be traveling from Helsinki to Akaslompolo over New Year's eve. I want to travel by rail to Kolari and transfer to the bus. I keep hearing that there is a TrainBus option available from VR Finland but I do not see this on the website. It says there is a bus that leaves from Levi after the train arrives in Kolari, but will I need to make the reservation in order to get on the bus? I'm based in the U.S., so I won't be able to visit any VR stations to book the tickets.
1.) Is it possible to book over the phone?
2.) Do I need to book, or can I show up and pay for my ticket when I arrive in Kolari?
