This mountain cabin accepts payment by card or by Swish but also bring some cash with you on your hike. Telecommunications do not always work in the mountains.

The area has a very old history. There is an overnight cabin ruin from the Middle Ages at the foot of the Helags mountains. A grave from the Viking Age has also been discovered on the same trail. Two old pilgrim trails from Ljusnedal and Ljungdalen into Norway are also here. The region is also reindeer grazing grounds to the Mittådalens Sámi village. Socially structured, a Sámi village or siida is a reindeer foraging area, a group for reindeer herding and a corporation working for the economic benefit of its members all in one.
 
The mountain cabin lies on a barren and easily hiked high mountain plateau, and is a day’s hike between Helags Mountain Station and Mount Ramund. The area around the cabin has excellent fishing, not the least during the wintertime. Purchasing fishing permits is easiest done on the web at www.natureit.se
 
The cabin’s name comes from a military accident that killed three military soldiers. At the site, the dome-shaped Agellhyddan cabin was first built in 1945. The present cabin was built in 1965.
 
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.
