Payment by card is accepted at STF Kårsavagge mountain cabin. Swish service depending on type of subscription.
Whether the ghost rumours are true, we don’t know, but John Bauer got the inspiration for his trolls on the way to Kårsavagge Valley.
The area around the cabin is easily hiked, though if you want to go out of the valley, the climbing is essentially strenuous in every direction, if you don’t return towards Abisko. A few challenging routes go from STF Kårsavagge to Låktatjåkkå cabin. You can go over the ridge southeast to STF Abiskojaure on Kungsleden (Royal Trail). Visit the Kårsajökeln, a glacier with endless moraines and a beautiful delta.
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.
