More about STF Sårjåsjaure Mountain cabin
The daughter to Konsul Persson, who was rather bored during her father’s stationing in Sulitelma, fell in love with this place and her father built her a cabin here. The cabin is therefore often called ‘Konsul Persson’s cabin’. The cabin was donated later on to STF by descendants of the daughter. Now under STF management, the cabin receives hikers along the Nordkalott Trail.
“Konsul Perssons stuga” is situated on a promontory, with a magnificent waterfall just to the north and a sandy beach of length several hundred metres just to the south of the cabin. Glacier water in the lake glimmers in shades of turquoise that depend on how the light falls. The cabin is unmanned and open all year around.
The Nordkalott Trail goes along the beach of Lake Sårjusjaures, with a Norwegian Trekking Association (DNT) cabin at the other end of the lake.
Fishing, easier alpine tours and total relaxation of the most meditative kind are words that fit well to describe a stay here.
