Musta Mäntyjärvi is our own excursion destination, primarily intended for fishers, but you can also enjoy the nature in many ways. In addition to fishing, the area is well-suited for lake canoeing, camping, gathering berries and mushrooms, or hiking in nearby forests. It is a short distance away from Patvinsuo national park, and even the Ruuna camping area is just a few dozen kilometres away.

In addition to Musta Mäntyjärvi, there are several other small lakes nearby, where you can also test your luck in fishing. There are also several rivers in the nearby area for fishers and canoers. Some of which are well-suited for excursion canoeing, some are more challenging due to the lack of water during dry periods and beaver dams. However, our guides will provide those interested with advice on suitable canoeing routes during different seasons. If necessary, we shall arrange transportation and a canoeing instructor for the routes.

The hut can accommodate approximately 15 people to dine at once.
