Lankojärvi Reservable Wilderness Hut

Suitable for overnight stays for hikers and groups with good navigation skills. The hut is located in the Urho Kekkonen National Park's wilderness zone, which has no marked trails. You can follow a marked trail until Lake Rautulampi. The distance from there to Lake Lankojärvi is eight kilometres, and you will need a map and a compass to manage it. The nearest shops and restaurants are located in Saariselkä. The hut was built in 1967.
