Book accommodation

Log cabins respecting the national park's traditions Joukojärvi pirtti and Riihelä accommodate guests by the Joukojärvi lake next to the national park. There are 8 beds in the cottage. Electricity is generated from the sun most of the year. The system delivers 5 kwh of instantaneous power and, thanks to the battery, is sufficient for normal use.
