Closest Airport

Unfortunately Kuopio Airport will be closed totally for traffic the whole of July because of runway resurfacing. http://www.finavia.fi/passengers_release?id=68608
13.3.07 Kuopio Airport will be closed 2 July 29 July 2007 Air traffic will come to a halt in July at Kuopio Airport, and the airport will be closed from 2 July 29 July 2007. In the air traffic areas, runways and taxiways will be resurfaced and other repairs will be carried out to the paving. A new rainwater drain will be dug under the runway and taxiway, and a fixed stop cable system will be built for Hornet jet fighters.
Because of the above mentioned we recommend you to fly to Helsinki (see information on bike transport below) where you can either:
- fly to Joensuu + 128 km/ca 1.5 hours by road to Kuopio
- fly to Jyvskyl + 155 km/ca 2 hours by road to Kuopio
(in both of the alternatives above please check the availability of cargo space for your bikes!)
- hire a car: 370 km/ca 4.5 hours to Kuopio
- travel by rail (transfer to Helsinki railway station 30 minutes + ca 4 hours by rail)
- take a bus via Helsinki city centre to Kuopio: ca 5 hours
