Travelling and accomodation

TRAVELLING TO TARTU

The easiest way to reach Tartu by air is via Tallinn (Ülemiste) airport, to where there are many direct flights from a number of European cities, including Riga, Vilnius, Helsinki and Stockholm. Alternatively, you can connect via Helsinki, from where there is a daily direct flight to Tartu airport.

For travelling between Tallinn and Tartu, we recommendusing intercitybus transport. Buses between Tallinn and Tartu run daily every full hour, and even more often (every 30 minutes) during busy periods. The distance between Tallinn and Tartu is 186 km and the travel time by bus is approximately 2,5 hours. Buses are comfortable and most of them offer WiFi connection, entertainment systems, hot drinks. In Tallinn the buses make a scheduled stop at the airport, and in Tartu the bus station is located in the city center, next to the Dorpat hotel. Please consult the intercity bus timetable and purchase tickets online. During the weekends it is advisable to buy bus tickets in advance.


There is also an intercity train connection between Tallinn and Tartu. Express trains run 10 times per day and the travel time is around 2 hours. WiFi connection is available in all trains. Trains timetable and ticket information is available here.

For those arriving to Tallinn airport around midnight or departing from Tallinn airport in early morning, the minibuses operated by Tartaline take you from Tallinn airport to your hotel in Tartu and back. You can make reservations at Tartaline homepage.

It is possible to travel to Tartu from Riga by bus, but the travel time is going to be approximately 3,5 to 4,5 hours depending on the bus company, and the buses do not operate as often (around 6 times a day). For additional information, see homepage of Ecolines or LuxExpress.
