Lahti is located less than an hour from the Helsinki-Vantaa Airport and therefore is very easily reached from the airpot.

The Ring Rail line brings an easy connection from Helsinki-Vantaa Airpot to all over Finland. The train takes approximately 50 minutes from the Airport to Lahti.

Bus

The bus from Helsinki-Vantaa Airport leaves once on hour and the journey takes about an hour and 20 minutes.

Both long-distance buses and trains stop at the Travel Centre. Lahti Travel Centre is located in the transport hub of the city centre next to the existing railway station and it’s in a walking distance from the Lahti Sport Centre. You can also continue your journey by local bus, because most of the local buses stop at the Travel Centre too.
