Eskelisen Lapin Linjat is one of the largest transport companies offering scheduled routes and coach charter services in Lapland. The company, established in 1928, is still run by the same family – now in its third generation.

Transport services offered

Eskelisen Lapin Linjat offers both scheduled routes and coach charter services. Our home ground is Lapland and the North Calotte Area. Our route network reaches all the way from Oulu and Rovaniemi to the shores of the northern Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean, to such places as North Cape, Tromsø and Vadsø. We have scheduled routes from Helsinki via Rovaniemi to tourist centres in Lapland and northern Norway. Our coach charters are at your service for trips with destinations in Finland or abroad.


We utilise all national and regional tickets available at Oy Matkahuolto Ab. We also have Eskelinen’s own list for our inexpensive connections from Helsinki, Lahti–Jyväskylä and Helsinki–Oulu to Lapland and northern Norway. Prices for tickets to Norway can be found on a separate pricelist.
