More about STF Gåsen Mountain cabin
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.
The cabin is the centre between mountain stations to the west and mountain cabins in the Vålådalen Nature Reserve. There is often snow in the area during the winter and the cabins can be difficult to find at a distance. For years, snow has remained right into the summer season.
Hiking trails go from Gåsen in five directions. In Gåsen, there is also an old hiking trail between the Sámi camp in Tjallingen and Ljungris
Gåsen’s peak and Härjångstöten, perhaps the most magnificent peak in the area, are tempting and challenging ascents. At the peak, there is a box with a guest book for those who have gone all the way up. The western slope of Gåsen has rich, limestone flora.
