STF Kårsavagge Mountain cabin
Coziness and beauty in a secluded valley near Abisko
About the accommodationThis small and cosy mountain cabin has a delightful location in a magnificent and secluded valley. “Kårsa” in Swedish means “ravine” and the name reflects the imposing slopes that surround the valley. Kårsavagge is an ideal destination for a trip from STF Abisko Turiststation.
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.
