Instructions for visiting the port

Driving instructions to the port

Motorway E18 / 7 runs right by the Port of Loviisa. When approaching the port on the motorway from either the east or the west, exit at junction 66 in Loviisa. Follow the signs saying ‘satama / Valko’ through the roundabouts and turn from Helsingintie onto Valkontie number 178 in accordance with the signs. Follow Valkontie for approximately 5 km and turn left at the last sign saying ‘satama’. This should bring you very near the port gate.

If you do not yet have an access pass, there is a truck stop area outside the port area, and a parking space outside the port gate for short stops. Please do not block the road, thank you!

If you need to visit the port office, turn left onto the road leading uphill to the port building.

The following addresses will lead you to the port gate when entered into a satnav:

Terminaalintie 1, 07910 Valko
Siilotie 6, 07910 Valko

Port office (outside the port area):
