Getting around Rovaniemi

The University of Lapland is located about two kilometres from the town centre (20–30 minutes by foot). Bus route no. 4 operates between the University and the town centre. The bus stop in the town centre is on Ruokasenkatu, near the corner of Valtakatu and the taxi station. In the University area, the bus stop is near the main entrance of the University main building.

A single ticket costs €3.30, and a transfer ticket (in Finnish: vaihtolippu) is €3.60.

How to get to the University from Hotel Aakenus: take bus no. 5 and change to bus no. 4 on Ruokasenkatu. Ask for a transfer ticket (in Finnish: vaihtolippu) and tell the driver the bus number you will change to (to ensure that the other bus will wait if the first bus is late).
