Wilderness huts are special free shelters in the backcountry, meant for short stay. Although comfort varies, mostly these shelters have at least a fireplace and a place to put an isomattress.

Especially in more populated areas, the shelters are often quite close to a settlement and so within walkable distance from a (main) road.

Locations

Andorra

In Andorra there are 26 mountain shelters. See here.
