More about STF Njunjes Mountain cabin
STF Njunjes mountain cabin will be unmanned during the winter of 2021. This means that only one safety room with two beds will remain open. Given these restrictions, please plan your mountain hike so that you can complete the Tarrekaise-Kvikkjokk stage in a single day. Distance to Tarrekaise: 7km. Distance to Kvikkjokk: 15km. The large cabin is locked during the winter season. Safety rooms are unlocked all year round. There is no daily supervision, so if you need to spend the night in the safety room, you you will need to provide your own water and snow removal. Manned during the summer of 2021 1/7-5/9.
If you walk over the bridge southwards, it is possible to make several easy day tours in the area of the cabin. Passeuksa is a place of sacrifice located five kilometres west of Njunjes. Ahkalmfallet is another worth seeing, situated two kilometres west. For experienced hikers, there are possibilities to do various alpine tours, such as Njunjesvarro, Jungagajsse and Vouka.
Tarra Valley is a long mountain valley that stretches from Kvikkjokk to the corner of Padjelanta National Park. The valley is especially rich in wildlife, such as grouse, elk, wolverine, lynx and bear. The fishing is during both summer and winter.
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.
