More about STF Såmmarlappa Mountain cabin
Lynx are at home on the steep and large rock slopes just north of the mountain cabin and wolverine often use its hunting zone nearby. A quiet moment looking out from the cabin window can, with some luck, give you a reward that you will not soon forget.
A natural outing during the summer is to experience the roaring rapids of the Tarra River, about one kilometre from the cabin. Follow the Padjelanta Trail north until you hear the rapids at their loudest. Then turn west. The river races out from here into a deeply carved canyon.
If you want to experience it alone, make your way over with the ferry and go up towards Fierrovagge Valley. A small detour at the tip of Vuosák provides you with a view several kilometres down into the Tarra Valley.
A tough challenge, via Såmmargårsså just north-east of the cabin, is to go up to the bare mountain region and further on to the peak of Måskásgájsse, 1,724 m.a.s.l. The view of the Tarra Valley below and the high mountains of Sarek to the north are worthy reward for all the effort of getting up. If you’re fortunate enough to get here with skis in the winter, the only thing to do is congratulate you on an exceptional run back to the 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.
