Keys for the Hyypiö reservable rental hut are available in the key cabinet located in dry toilet in the Hyypiö courtyard. The key cabinet will open with the code that comes with the invoice.
The cabin has wood heating. The kitchen has a wood-burning stove and a gas cooker, and there is a heating stove in the main room; the amenities include candle lighting, tableware and cooking utensils. Please note that it takes some time before the hut is properly warm!
There are two bunk beds and a dining set in the main room. The sauna is near the cabin (the distance to the lake is roughly 50 metres). In addition, the yard has a traditional chimneyless smoke sauna (for use on reservation only) as well as a toilet, well, woodshed, campfire site, waste containers (mixed waste, biodegradable, metal and glass), jetty and a boat.
The Harju well located beside the Sauna is also meant for hikers. The water in Harju well doesn't meet the quality requirements set for domestic water, so hikers need to bring their own drinking water (2 July 2019).

You can swim in Lake Kyynäräjärvi. There is no official beach.
Please remember to bring your own linen!
