Nuuksio Reindeer Park and White Reindeer Teepee Restaurant
Experience a touch of northern exoticism in Finland's southernmost private reindeer park in Nuuksio. The reindeer came from Inari in Finnish Lapland to Nuuksio at Christmas 2013 and are well adapted to their southern home. Reindeer herd in the park: Bull deer Oscar (born 2010), bull deer Niila (born 2012) and the female deer Taika, Lumi and Nella (born in 2013). Ins spring 2019 we received a supplement to the herd when curious Usva (born 2018) and her mother Tähti (born 2016) arrived to the park, so the total number is now 7 reindeer. The "old reindeer" showed the newcomers immediately the order of precedence which usually goes to the size of the horns. Oscar, the oldest reindeer, is the boss. In the spring, when they drop there horns, the order of rank may change momentarily depending on whose horns are the first to drop. Reindeer horns are the world's fastest growing bone, new horns grow up to 1-2 cm / day.
The atmospheric White Reindeer Teepee Restaurant is located in the Reindeer Park. Enjoy lunch, a three-course dinner with wine or tasty campfire coffee prepared in the tepee. The restaurant is fully licenced. Popular meals include flamed salmon, wild-stew prepared on the fire and Lapland cheese and cloudberry jam for dessert. Souvenirs can be bought at the end of the visit.
A visit to the Reindeer park, a campfire coffee break or dining in the teepee restaurant can be combined with a meeting day in the Karhunpesä/ Bear’s Nest Villa.
We have arranged wedding celebrations and christenings, celebrated successful work projects and just enjoyed unforgettable and relaxing moments around the campfire with reindeer strolling around in the park.
