Lammi Biological Station is situated 100 km north of Helsinki and is hard to reach by public traffic. To make your travelling easier we offer special SCAPE-transportation from Helsinki city centre via Helsinki-Vantaa Airport to Lammi by bus. On sunday, we will travel back to Helsinki-Vantaa Airport and Helsinki city centre. The exact locations of bus stops and the travel schedule of this bus will be announced on this website as well as to participants by E-mail.
On Thursday 24 October, morning flights to Helsinki are recommended as afternoon flights may arrive too late for the SCAPE-transportation, which is planned to leave mid afternoon.
On Sunday 27 October, late afternoon or evening flights from Helsinki are recommended as the SCAPE-transportation is planned to arrive mid afternoon.
There are no extra costs for this SCAPE-transportation. We strongly recommend that all of you would make use of the special SCAPE-transportation!
Traveling to Helsinki by air
Traveling to Finland by ferry from Stockholm
Some Scandinavian Scapers may prefer the ferry from Stockholm to Turku. Tallink Silja Line and Viking Line each offer a night and a day journey to both cities. The same companies offer a connection from Stockholm directly to Helsinki once a day (night journey).

What if you cannot catch the special SCAPE-transportation bus or if you missed it?
Only if there is no possibility at all to catch the special SCAPE-transportation on Thursday or in case you missed it, the best alternative is to take a bus from Helsinki city centre or Helsinki-Vantaa Airport to the town of Lammi. This journey is offered several times per day and takes between 2 and 3 hours depending on the connection. Most connections require a transfer in either Lahti or Hämeenlinna. Since Lammi Biological Station lies 5 km from Lammi town, we need to pick you up by car.
In case you know beforehand that you cannot catch the special SCAPE-transportation, please inform us as soon as possible.
In case you missed the special SCAPE-transportation, call Niek (+358 465423935).
We would like to emphasise again that this scenario is an exception for those who have no option to catch the special SCAPE-transportation due to necessarily late arrival in Helsinki or for those who missed the SCAPE-transportation due to travel delays.
