Campfire Sites, Campfire Shelters, Lean-to Shelters and Wilderness Huts
There are campfire sites, lean-to shelters and campfire shelters in the Hetta Area. Most of these are managed by Metsähallitus. Lighting campfires is forbidden when there is a forest fire warning in effect even in spots designated for them. During the driest part of summer we recommend that you do not light fires in closed campfire shelters or in the fireplace in wilderness huts.

It is the responsibility of each hiker to dispose of waste that accumulates during the trip. Biodegradable waste should be placed in a dry toilet or composter, and small amounts of clean paper and cardboard can be used as kindling in a campfire. You can get more information on recycling and waste management on the Hiking without Littering pages.
In the recreational zone of Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park camping is allowed in the vicinity of huts and campfire sites. In the wilderness zone you are free to camp anywhere, but campfires may only be lit near bodies of water.
