Dierpmesjávri / Termisjärvi Reservable Wilderness Hut
The hut is located on the north shore of the five-kilometre-long Lake Termisjärvi (Dierpmesjávri), on the west side of a stream which runs into the lake from Salmikuru Ravine. There is no marked summer trail to the hut. Termisvaara (Dierpmesvárri), which is Finland's southernmost fell over 1,000 metres high, is located south of the lake. The hut is meant for skiers and hikers only. The hut is approximately 15 km from Kilpisjärvi.
