Drinking Water

  • Every open wilderness hut has a water point.
  • The waters along the trail are usually safe to drink, but drinking water straight from its natural source is at ones own risk. During warm weather water should be boiled before drinking.

Waste Management

  • There are recycling points at the two northernmost open wilderness huts on the trail.
  • There are waste bins for mixed waste at other open wilderness huts.
  • We ask that despite these waste bins you bring your waste out of the area. Read more about Hiking Without Littering.

Firewood Supply

  • Firewood is brought to open wilderness huts by snowmobile during late winter and they are ready chopped mixed wood in a sack. Empty sack is disposable waste. Maintenance and delivering firewood stresses the environment, so we ask that you use firewood sparingly.

Maintenance and Management

  • Waste management and firewood supply are managed by Metsähallitus, Natural Heritage Services Lapland. For more information contact Northern Lapland Nature Centre Siida tel. int. +358 206 39 7740.


  • There is a dry toilet at each open wilderness hut.

Overnight Stays


  • Camping is permitted as an Everyman's Right along the trail. By camping at old tent sites you can reduce the wearing down of the land.
