More about STF Pältsa 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.
The landscape is characterised by tundra with a peculiar flora thanks to the cold and barren climate. Here, you can hike along vast boulder ridges close to extremely steep mountain peaks on the Norwegian side.
If you walk up the mountain Pältsan you might be forunate enough to find the Laestadius poppy, a botanical rarity worth seeing.
The area is very rich in bird life, in particular passerines and wading birds. Many lakes and watercourses in the area are rich in fish.
From Pältsan, you can see the midnight sun from mid-May to the end of July.
