Part of the film Gold Fever in Lapland was filmed at the point where the Rivers Kyläjoki and Ivalojoki meet. All the props have been cleared away except this hut which is fashioned for the 1800s.

Pets are permitted in the hut, but only in case that other visitors agree with it. The hut is open for use from the beginning of June through to the end of September.
