Blåhammaren is the smallest and highest mountain lodge run by STF. It is situated off the beaten track, in roadless countryside, accessible only on foot or on skis from Storulvån, Rundhögen or Storvallen. As the lodge already lies high up in the mountains, it is not far to the nearest peak, Blåhammarkläppen.

The mountain lodge has around 50 beds in the main building and an annex. The main building offers twin rooms, 4-bed rooms and 6-bed rooms as well as toilets, showers, a sauna and drying room. The annex contains a 14-bed room and a room with mattresses on the floor, as well as self-catering facilities and a drying room.

We serve a breakfast buffet, a lunch of fruit soup (which also has a history dating back to the 1920s). Dinner is served at 6 pm sharp– a three-course buffet with common seating and table plan. The lodge is fully licensed.

Blåhammaren is a small lodge with a high level of occupancy, which means that dinner should be booked when booking accommodation. Special food requirements should be mentioned when booking.

We have a small shop with a limited selection of food items, sweets, clothing and souvenirs.

And there’s plenty of room here if you want to put up a tent. For a charge of SEK 100 SEK (members of STF and HI associations) or SEK 200 (non-members), you can gain access to all of the facilities of the mountain station. It is not possible to book a place for a tent, but remember that campers can obtain meals at the lodge (full board), if they book meals in advance.

To see and do
There are many suggestions for daytrips from the lodge. The staff can gladly help with tips and ideas.

STF Blåhammaren is cash free. You can pre-pay your stay, but on site you can only pay by card.
