Arrival and parking:

We recommend arriving by public transport, or shared transportation to reduce emissions and to prevent traffic congestion on Nuuksiontie. The customers of the Reindeer Park share the same parking area with the guests of the Bear's Nest Villa, so parking spaces are limited. The nearest larger parking area is at the Finnish Nature Center Haltia, approximately 1 km before the Reindeer Park. 

NOTE! Parking on private roads is strictly prohibited. Residents must have access to their properties, and snowplows need to clear private roads freely during winter.


The Reindeer Park is accessed by wide wooden plank path from the car park (approx. 60 m) and a few steps at the end.
