Notices

Tappuri Open Wilderness Hut has been renovated in June 2007.

The peak seasons for this hut are Easter holidays and the autumn´s ruska season.

The wilderness hut is located close to the Näkkälä herding co-operative's reindeer fence and is therefore often used by herders.

Pets are permitted in the hut, but only in case that other visitors agree with it.

Visitors must come prepared with warm clothing, food, drink, maps, compass, orienteering skills and matches. Fog or storms can form in just a few hours. Take also your own toilet paper.
