Rytitupa is located at the Rytivaara Crown Tenant Farm in Rytivaara, along the Syöte-Kouva UKK-trail. The wooden hut is a former wilderness hut which earlier stood at south hillside of Rytivaara. There it served hikers for 10 years before it was moved 3 km to its present location and changed into a reservable hut. In the Rytivaara hut you can experience spending the night in a forest croft, with an atmosphere of the olden days.
