Hi, can someone tell me is there a train from La Rochelle / Paris to Helsinki, or the only way to go there is to travel by plane? Thanks

There are other routes as well - you could do a combination of train and ferry if you want to avoid flying, but it would still be a marathon. Have a look at the Man in Seat 61 website for some ideas on how to make the journey.


Easiest option is to fly from Paris, though.
