Hossa Wilderness Huts

The wilderness hut is a modest but good place to stay for those who are out in nature. Open to all and unlocked, they can be used for a night or two without booking in advance. Facilities include sleeping lounges, a table, benches, cooking utensils, a stove, a dry toilet and sometimes a gas stove. Firewood, a saw and an axe are also provided. Smoking is not allowed in the huts, and pets are not allowed in some of them.
