More about STF Gåsen Mountain cabin
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.
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.
