STF Kårsavagge Mountain cabin

More about STF Kårsavagge 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.

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.

STF Kårsvagge is an ideal outing from STF Abisko Turiststation. After a tour on the chairlift up to the bare mountain region, it’s easy hiking to the mountain cabin.


It is cheaper to buy the accommodation online, then when you are at the mountain cabin.
