|Considerations:||There is no water nearby. Water has to be brought in.|
The Kivalo wilderness hut was built in summer 2009. The hut with fireplace is provided with beds for four people. In addition to the hut there is a campfire site, a dry closet and a fire guard tower, which today serves as a viewing tower.
There is no water nearby. The water should be carried for one and a half kilometers from the fountain-trickle located near the jaeger-hut.
The Kivalo wilderness hut is not the original fire hood. In the 1960s, there was a site-like cab with a construction site built before the current building. To the former Fire Tower tower you can admire the scenery to the other level. Access to the highest level has been blocked.
