The Rykimäkero lapp hut is a cozy rest area along the Rykimäkero Trail. The old storage holds remind of the past, when food was stored in these kinds of constructions to keep it from animals.


Getting there

The Rykimäkero lapp hut is located along the Rykimäkero Trail, which is a 12 km circle trail that can be experienced in summer by hiking or mountain biking and in winter by cross-country skiing. If going clockwise, the lapp hut is found only 700 m from the starting point and this section is in summer accessible by wheelchair (with an assistant) and pram. The trail starts from Rykimäkero parking lot, approximately 19 km drive from Pyhä and 5,5 km drive from Luosto.
