If you have more time, you may also go to Metsavenna campfire site, which gives an overview of the life of the Forest Brothers, the partisans in the 1940s-50s. The Saarjõgi River study trail, starting at the campfire site, offers an opportunity for a longer hike.


The hut sleeps 9 people. Pet – 5€ per night.

Please bring your own sleeping equipment, dishes, drinking water, safe candles.

There are tables, benches, a fireplace and cooking stove with minimum kitchenware. No electricity in the hut. Water both for drinking and other uses needs to be taken along. Outside there is an outdoor fireplace and dry toilet.


This was the home of the main character Põrgupõhja Jürka in the 1964 Estonian film "Põrgupõhja uus vanapagan". Photo exhibition of making the film is displayed upstairs.

Winter accessibility:

The parking area and access roads are maintained. Firewood is available at the campfire site.
NB! In winter when the outside temperature falls below -10°C, it is cold in the hut despite heating. This is why overnight stay in the hut in winter is recommended only with proper winter sleeping equipment!
