More about STF Saltoluokta Mountain station
One of the main reasons visitors come to the mountain lodge is the outstanding possibilities to enjoy the fantastic Swedish mountain region at its best.
We are situated right on the edge of the large World Heritage region Laponia, including the Stora Sjöfallet, Sarek, Padjelanta, Muddus national parks and Sjaunja and Sör-Stubba nature reserves. This region has received its world heritage status not only because of its wonderful natural beauty but also because of the ancient Sami culture that lives on today in the area.
Many of our guests stop here as part of a longer hiking trip. They may have started in Kvikkjokk and spent a few days hiking northwards, passing Aktse and the famous Skierfe cliffs with views over the Rapa valley. Or maybe they started in Ritsem or Suorva and have hiked through Sarek national park to end at Saltoluokta and a longed for shower and delicious meal. Maybe they started in Abisko, following the Kungsleden trail southwards to Vakkotavare and then taken a bus to reach Kebnatsbryggan and Saltoluokta. Or maybe they have planned to do this trip in reverse and decided to use Saltoluokta as the starting point. However, many decide to have a more relaxed existance, staying at Saltoluokta and making exploratory day trips in the surrounding area, on their own or with one of our skilled guides.
Our annex Kierkau contains our ”cabin beds”, popular among hikers and passing skiers. The rooms have bunk beds, storage for clothing and the forest right outside the window. Common shower and toilet facilities in the corridor. There is also a self-catering kitchen and a drying room in the building. Pine panelling in the corridors and rooms gives the genuine cabin feeling. Cosy accommodation and Saltoluokta’s equivalent of “compact living”.
Förarstugan and G:a Station are our oldest buildings, established in 1912. Accommodation in cabins with kitchen facilities. The cabins have no water – shower and WC facilities are in the service building next door. The service building also houses a large self-catering kitchen. Rooms have bunk beds. Only in some of theese rooms it is allowed to bring pets.
Our most popular accommodation lies in the main building, particularly for those who want to be close to everything. The same building houses our restaurant, shop and reception. It was built in 1918 and has, as far as possible, the original fittings. The accommodation here is charming, with timber walls, open fires, creaking floorboards and the majority of rooms have fantastic views over Lake Langas and Sjöfallsfjällen. The four-bed rooms have one bunk bed and two single beds. A wardrobe, chest of drawers and a small table are also provided. Rooms are also decorated with soapstone stoves, just as they were almost 90 years ago. These four bed rooms are the most popular family rooms at Saltoluokta, regardless of whether you are staying for one night or one week. WC facilties are in the corridor. Showers and a sauna are provided in the next door building. If you want to stay at the heart of things at Salto, stay in the main building.
Laponia was built in 1997 and is the latest addition to the buildings at Saltoluokta. The rooms are on the middle floor, with 2 beds in each. A table, chest of drawers and wardrobes are also provided. Laponia has a drying room for the building’s guests. The double rooms in Laponia are the most modern and comfortable at Saltoluokta.
