How to get to Särestö
Särestöniemi museum is situated in Kaukonen village, Kittilä: drive the main road 79 to Kaukonen, follow the Särestöniemi-museo sign and turn to a dirt road that takes you directly to the museum. Our accurate address is Särestöntie 880, Kaukonen. It's a one hour drive from Levi or 1h 15mins from Ylläs.
Parking for the marked area (P) only with 400meters walk to the ticket Café & ticket sales. Reduced mobility parking is possible near the Café building, next to Reidar Särestöniemi's statue.
Ticket sales from the Café, N.B: the cashier closes at 5pm.
The museum consists of three separate buildings with a bit of distance between each one. Only the Café is wheelchair accessible, other buildings can be reached through stairs. (the Gallery building stairs do not have a rail). The buildings are in a forest area, so the terrain varies; sturdy shoes are recommended.
An accessible restroom is situated in the Café building. There is also a baby care table.
Personal aides have free entry to the museum. Guide dogs are also welcome.
Ask for customer seating in the exhibition premises from the Café/ticket sales.
The Café also provides torches during winter since the museum outside area has reduced lighting conditions.
