Easy access by rally train from Helsinki

From Helsinki to Jyväskylä the fastest connection is the Pendolino train, which takes about 3.

5 hours. Train tickets can be purchased from the net store of VR (Finnish State Railways).

If you are flying to Helsinki-Vantaa, the simplest solution is to take the local train or a taxi from the airport to Tikkurila station and change there to a Jyväskylä-bound train.

The Rally Train, organised in cooperation with the rail company VR, is an easy and responsible way to travel. Travelling with the environmentally friendly VR Rally Trains, complete with restaurant cars, you don’t have to worry about parking either, as once in Jyväskylä you can hop on board a bus at the Matkakeskus Travel Centre. The shuttle buses will take you directly to the best spectator areas in Neste Rally Finland, the Rally Arenas. Book your places in advance!

NB. The Extra Rally Trains transport rally-goers from Helsinki to Jyväskylä (via Tampere) on both Thursday 1 and Friday 2 of August. The Rally Train timetable will be adapted to suit the Harju special stage schedule.
