Facilities

A stove, a gas cooker, a well, a dry toilet and a wood shed. Basic cookware (pot, frying pan, coffee pot). Bunk beds with mattresses, pillows and blankets. NB! Please, take your own sheets and pillowcase to protect the bedding.

There is a sauna at the small lake, situated about 150 metres from the hut. Near the hut there is a campfire shelter and a camping site.

Notices

Please note that it takes some time before the hut is properly warm. 

In the winter, the well does not work. The water has to be fetched from the stream north of the sauna or melted from snow.

Please, do not wash dishes or yourself closer than 15 m to the well to avoid bacteria to get into the well.

The sauna fee is 7 € / adult, 4 € / child (under 7 years) or for a member of a group (a group is > 10 persons). Payment in advance in the Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park's visitor centres or in the Eräluvat webshop (verkkokauppa.eraluvat.fi).

We suggest the following arrangement; women use the sauna during even-numbered hours and men during odd-numbered hours. This way everyone will get a chance to go. The sauna cannot be reserved for private use.

The peak seasons for this hut are Easter holidays and the autumn´s ruska season. Pets are not permitted in the hut.

There is an open wilderness hut located 200 meters from the reservable wilderness hut.

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.
