Details

WILDERNESS CABIN: Facilities in wilderness cabins are often more modest than in holiday cottages. Cabin is not preheated before customer’s arrival. Cabin should be cleaned by the customer during the holiday and after that. Due to long distances maintenance doesn’t check the cabin after all customers. If the cabin is not cleaned or there are deficiencies, please contact the caretaker immediately on arrival by calling. Please, remember to bring your own bed linen and towels (can not be rented). This cabin requires outdoor attitude and skills (how to make fire, for example). If you’re not sure, please consider another option. Water is not examined yearly so boiling the drinking water before use is recommended. The cabin can be reached by car during the summer. During snowy season car park 200 m form the cabin. Available for rent: Mid-April - early December. The National Park of Helvetinjärvi is only 3 km away, Helvetinkolu Gorge 10 km. The atmosphere of the past logging culture can be sensed in the cabin. This simple cabin is especially suitable for outdoor-minded groups who want to travel back in time and experience the spirit of the past. Distances: Vaskivesi (shop) 20 km, Ruovesi (e.g. restaurant, gas station) 20 km, Parkano 60 km, Tampere 70 km. Good trekking-, berry picking – and mushroom picking terrain. There is a path through the yard (which other hikers and canoeists use). River Haukkajoki has a 20 km long canoeing route. Good swimming facilities in lake Haukkajärvi (3 km) and Heinälahti (1 km). River is moderate to swim. More information: www.outdoors.fi/helvetinjarvi

    Täydellinen askeettinen erämökki. Todella hyvät löylyt saunassa ja jokeen oli virkistävää kastautua. Aivan ihana paikka !

  • Tero N, Elokuu 2021

    Mökin nykyajan mukavuuksista karsittu yksinkertaisuus kääntyy tämän mökin kohdalla isoksi plussaksi. Mukava irtiotto arkeen. Iso ja tilava rakennus. Hyvät sängyt. Kaikkea tarpeellista niin ruokailuvälineistä, kynttilöihin kuin puuvarantoihinkin oli runsaasti. Saunamökki joenvarrella oli erinomainen lisä vaelluksen päätteeksi. Ja tietysti rauha ja hiljaisuus isona plussana

  • Lilli K, Elokuu 2021

    Täydellinen loman- ja viikonlopunviettopaikka. Polku lähti melkein mökin nurkalta ja parin km päästä löytyy hiekkaranta. Joessa ja järvessä kirkas vesi. Kaivovesi mökillä täysin juotavaa, ei keitetty vastoin suositusta. Mökki on hämärä, joten otsalamppu on suositeltava että näkee touhuta. Puukko kannattaa myös...See more
