More about STF Fältjägaren Mountain cabin
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 at the cabin.
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
In a mountain cabin you stay cozy and easy with self catering in multi-bedded rooms. 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. The rooms are different sizes with bunk beds and usually heated by gas stoves. All mountain cabins offer accommodation for guests with dogs. You can not pre-book a specific room or bed - the principle is that you are guranteed a place to sleep. You can pre-pay an unspecified place to sleep on STF's website. An unspecified bed means either a regular bed or a comfortable mattress on the floor. Quilts, pillows and blankets are given for both sleeping options. You need to bring your own bed linen or a sleeping bag. Many of our cabins have shops where you can resupply. Some of these stores also sell gas cylinders, T-fuel, mountain maps and mosquito repellent. Several of the cabins also have a wood-fired sauna.
