Unfortunately you don't get to Ivalo by train but you can take a night train from Helsinki to Rovaniemi and continue by bus about 300 km to Ivalo.

You can try to find some information here.

Try this link:


And choose “Connections”.

Good luck!

A regional airline has advertised very low fares from Helsinki(nowadays) to Kittillä - called soder airlines -Alot less than train fare, but some folks really enjoy rail travel over flying if that is your fancy I sure don't want to disrupt that. But for pure economic concerns give it a thought. I am sure a bus can take you to Ivalo from Kittillä , a popular ski resort village.
