STF Arådalen Mountain cabin
Stay in Sweden's second oldest mountain cabin
About the accommodationArådalen is a valley to the west of the Hundshögen mountain, in the southern Ovik mountains. The hostel, which dates from 1895 when a tourist station was built here, is thus located in genuine mountain surroundings. The hostel today is enjoyed by both experienced mountain tourists and families with children.
There are plenty of opportunities to go for easy day trips up the mountain from Arådalen, including trips to the summit of Hundshögen and to the old and well-preserved pastoral cabin in Östra Arådalen. These cabins were once an important part of farming in Jämtland, and also served as sleeping accommodation for the first generation of mountain tourists.
If you’re a keen angler you can try your luck lake fishing in the Visjön or river fishing in the Arån. The quiet surroundings and welcoming landscape woven with small mountain streams invite families with children to explore the great outdoors together.
This is how it works in a mountain cabin
Our mountain cabins offer a simple and authentic stay in multi-bedded rooms with self catering. The rooms are different sizes with bunk beds and usually heated by gas stoves. On site you will be greeted by a cabin manager. As a guest you chop wood, fetch water from the stream or lake, wash up and clean up after youself.
