Description

There is a signpost guiding you to Tikkasen Vieriharju on the right side of the road approximately 7 km before Kemihaara. The hut is located approximately 50 metres from the Korvatunturintie road. In the summer, you can park your car in the lay-by behind the hut. The Korvatunturintie road is narrow in the winter, and the lay-by cannot be used – if you want to park, shovel a parking space for yourself along the road. Parking in the lay-by during winter prevents the ploughing of the road. You can travel to Savukoski from Kemijärvi railway station by bus or using a pre-bookable taxi service (website in Finnish). You should book the taxi the night before at the latest. You can take a taxi from Savukoski to Kemihaara (approximately 100 km). Taxi services are provided by Korvatunturin taksi, tel. +358 40 730 6484 . They also offer car transport services.
