Public transportation to Tangosauna

From Helsinki Vantaa Airport to the Marathon venue

If you can't make it for the Tangosauna bus, you can either travel by train+train+bus or bus/bus+6km taxi. The national route planner https://opas.matka.fi/ has an updated schedule, use "Terminal 2 Saapuvat / Arrivals, Vantaa" as departure and "Vierumäki Country Club" as destination. Here is a route suggestion.

Travel to Tangosauna with train+bus:

At the airport, board a train to Tikkurila (direction Pasila/Helsinki)

At Tikkurila Railway station, board a train to Lahti

At Lahti Railway station, find the bus stop named A (ask for directions there, if unsure)

At platform A, Board bus 88 (direction Heinola) or 89 (Direction Valkjärventie), they depart at least at 15:18, 16:18, 17:18, 18:18, 18:48, 19:18, 19.48, 20:18, 22:18, 22:48 and 23:18. Note: If you arrive Tangosauna after 17:00, you should check in at Scandic Hotel Vierumäki - right next to the bus stop.

Go off at the stop named Rampsintie. Here you can check in to your room at Scandic Vierumäki Hotel and finish off with a short walk to Tangosauna.

Example journey: You land at 17:00. You catch the 17:33 P-train from the Airport (Direction Pasila/Helsinki), it arrives in Tikkurila at 17:39 - from there you catch the 17:48 Z-train to Lahti.

After jumping off the bus at the Rampsintie stop, you can check in at Scandic Hotel Vierumäki before walking over to the country club.

Example journey 2: You arrive too late to catch the 88 or 89 bus from lahti (after 21:00). You find the stop for long distance bus travel at the airport, and at 22:30 board the Savonlinja bus headed to "Mikkeli matkakeskus". You go off at "Vierumäen liittymä" (the bus driver will help you). There is a gas station here, where you get some snacks and ask the staff to order you a taxi. Take the taxi to Scandic Hotel Vierumäki where you check in and finally you walk to the Country Club.

From Marathon venue to Helsinki Vantaa Airport

Travel time: about 2 hours 30 minutes.

Take the bus 89 (direction Orimattila Linja-autoasema) from Rampsintie (Departure times: 08:34, 09:34, 10:34, 11:34, 12:34, 13:34, 14:34, 15:34, 16:34, 17:34, 18:34, 22:34). It should arrive in Lahti travel center after 40 minutes where you can catch a train towards Tikkurila and then switch to the train to the airport. Total travel time is between 2h 20 minutes and 3 hours depending on your connections.

Example journey: You need to be at the airport at 14:45. You check the VR railway company's website, and see that you can be at "Helsinki Airport" by 14:45 if you hop on a train leaving Lahti at 13:20 with one change at Tikkurila station. To catch that train, you can take the bus (schedule above) from the venue (a few hundred meters walk) at 12:34, so you’ll have time to have breakfast and maybe even dance a couple of tandas before you go (just make sure that you know exactly where the bus stop is - ask the staff at the venue).
