Brief handout for 134 km runners how to get yourself to NUTS Pallas

Check list is based you come via Helsinki

Book yourself a ticket from Helsinki (IATA: HEL) either to Rovaniemi (RVN) or to Kittilä (KTT)

  1. RVN: There are multiple options to fly to Rovaniemi operated by both Finnair and Norwegian. If you don’t have much time to spare, best is to arrive on Thursday 14th July flying back on 17th Sunday late afternoon.
  2. KTT: Kittilä option can be used if you fly at least one day earlier on Thursday. Finnair flight departs from HEL at 10.35 arriving to Kittilä at 13.05 hrs.
  3. Book a rental car to wait for you at Rovaniemi or Kittilä (check our Europcar offer; booking code 52526860)
  4. Add Lapland Hotel Saaga as your destination (address to navigator: Iso-Ylläksentie 42, 95980 Ylläsjärvi – booking). It takes about two hours to drive from Rovaniemi and 30 mins from Kittilä. Note out that start of 134 km is set to Friday 15th at 18.00 hrs so in case of any delays we won’t recommend arriving on any Friday flights.

Cost difference between these two flight destinations as of date are around 150 € to RVN and 420 € to KTT (return ticket to HEL).

Remember to book a seat to the bus taking you back from finish to hotel Saaga on 16th from MyNextRun.

There are also hotel options available at Hetta (finish point for both 55 and 134 km) where “Enontekiö Tourist information” is able to provide more information. Unfortunately Lapland Hotel Hetta seems to be already fully booked.
