Public transportation

If you can't make it for the Tangosauna bus, you can either catch a ride with a local dancer or travel by train+bus or bus+bus. Total travel time including waiting is around three hours, and we will post some suggested itineraries in March, when the bus schedules for the summer are available.

Keep in mind that you might need to travel by taxi (~15 min) for a piece of the journey if you arrive Friday evening. 

To Finland

The recommended travel plan is to arrive in Helsinki already on Thursday evening and not to have the return ticket earlier than Monday morning. That way you can attend both, the premilonga and the after party at El Atico in Helsinki.
