Hi, am trying to book overnight train tickets from Helsinki to Rovaniemi for Dec 2018. Does any one know if there is any way to book ticket in advance as website asks to book 130 days before travel date. Many thanks

The website asks you to book 130 days before travel date, right? Well, it's 130 days till 13 December. You can work out the rest for yourself.

The irony is that it is not letting book for anything beyond 8th Dec so am not sure how 130 days in advance works.

Which we site are you looking at? As far as I know www.vr.fi only allows booking 60 days in advance.

130 days is quite a strange number...

VR nowadays allows booking 130 days in advance.

However the second Sunday of December is the official train timetable change date in the European Union. VR probably releases the tickets only after they have confirmed the changes in the timetables.

Hi everyone, does anyone have the prices? also, how does it work? can you arrive in Helsinki airport, then just get on the train you booked? sorry if I sound stupid I've been on the official site/ticket page and I just really can't work out how to book it, if the trains are regular, how much it would cost....etc. planes from London to Rovaniemi are looking at about 300 pounds total and its pretty steep. planes to Helsinki are way cheaper but I have no idea what the prices are.
