is located on south face of Kaunispää fjeld. The cabin is equipped with modern facilities and internet connection.
Hotels and services of Saariselkä centrum are quite near the location.
As the venue is located in cabin, the accomodation capabilities are limited.
There are two options:
1) You can accomodate to the cabin
2) Reserve a hotel room (recommended!)
Option 1 - Lodging in the cabin
If you will accomodate in the cabin, the price is included in the registration fee. However, there
are limited number of private rooms in the cabin, so first come, first served principle applies here.
Furthermore, you have to take into account, the the cabin accomodation is not the most comfortable one,
there might be some noises from the venue in the evening.
Option 2 - Hotel
If you decide to go to hotel, you should reserve the room by yourself. Hotel costs are not included in the registration fee.
