tulla perille

  1. To arrive (in/at the final destination of a journey).
    Milloin tulemme perille?
    When will we arrive (in the destination)?


Usage notes[edit]

  • In Finnish, one does not arrive "in" or "at" somewhere but "to" somewhere.
  • If one wants to specify the place of arrival, the adverb perille can be replaced with a noun inflected in illative or allative case, depending on where one arrives ("in" or "at" somewhere).
    Milloin tulemme Jyväskylään?
    When will we arrive in Jyväskylä?
