More about STF Arådalen Mountain cabin
The hostel is situated in a genuine mountain environment and has welcomed visitors since 1895, when it first opened its doors as a tourist camp. Today the hostel still welcomes mountain tourists as well as 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.
Our mountain cabins usually do not have electricity, and mobile phone coverage often does not reach them. This means that our cabin managers do not have the facilities required to handle a modern booking system. If you have paid for accommodation in advance, you will be met by a welcoming and dedicated cabin manager who will not know about your advance payment. The manager will, naturally, ensure that you obtain the best possible accommodation. If you provided extra information in the “Comments” field when making your booking, we will do everything in our power to inform the cabin manager of this. We hope, however, that you understand that this is not always possible. Remember to take confirmation of your prepayment with you.
