By air

Turku has an international airport with several daily connections to Helsinki, Stockholm, and Copenhagen. A large number of airlines offer flights to Turku through one of these three hubs. The airport is 8 km from Turku with regular local bus connections to the centre. The bus takes about 20 minutes and costs 2 euro. There is also an airport taxi.

As an alternative, you can fly to Helsinki which is about 170 km from Turku. There is a direct bus connection between the Helsinki-Vantaa airport and the centre of Turku. The bus takes about 2h 30min and costs about 26 euro.

By sea

If you feel adventurous, you can fly to Stockholm and take one of the large cruise ships that sail twice a day between Turku and Stockholm. The cruise is a great experience and you can also visit Stockholm at the same time. The cruisers are operated by Silja Line and Viking Line.

By land

Travelling from elsewhere in Finland by land, you can use either bus or train. Regular connections from major cities enable flexible moving around.

Reaching Tuorla

If you come with a car, please see instructions on Tuorla Observatory Visitor Info. If you take a taxi, the taxi driver should know where Tuorla is. The LOC is unfortunately unable to cover any costs of taxi rides (or petrol or car rental costs). If you take a bus, please see instructions on Tuorla Observatory Visitor Info. If you need to find your way to the bus station in Turku centre, or think you need a map of Tuorla area, fetch this map of both locations. The JPG file is 300 dpi and should print exactly to the size of an A4.
