Questions regarding Finnish rail website tickets / prices

Jump to last reply

I'm looking on the Finnish rail website for return tickets Helsinki → Saariselkä, using the VR Online Shop:
https://shop.vr.fi/onlineshop/Welcome.do?request_locale=en

It doesn't matter what dates I put in, a week out or 2 months out, the radio buttons that allow me to select a particular train are greyed out. I can't select anything at all. I'm trying to determine both price and timing and can't tell, for example, if 139,63 € for the 6:06 AM departure is one-way or round trip.

So the questions are:
1) Do the greyed-out buttons mean there are no available seats? Seems hard to believe.
2) Is the RT fare about 150 €, or is it closer to 300?

As a side note I can see fares to St. Petersburg here:

... but am having trouble with the domestic tix.

Advice appreciated!
Thanks.
