About the accommodation

The mountain cabin lies right next to a Sàmi camp at the northern beach of Sitojaure, between Saltoluokta and Kvikkjokk. The lake and the luxuriant mountain birch forest are an oasis for birds such as the redstart, willow warbler, blackbird, black-throated loon, long-tailed duck and common scoter.

Socially structured, a Sámi village or siida is a reindeer foraging area, a group for reindeer herding and a corporation working for the economic benefit of its members all in one.
 
After a day in the mountains, many hikers take a dip in the shallow and warm lake – for the mountains.
 
You can do a nice outing to the outlook at Lulep Vaggevarasi, 732 m.a.s.l., and admire the terrific view over Lake Sitojaure. The peak can be easily reached from Kungsleden (Royal Trail), about 800 metres north of the mountain cabin.
 
At Sitojaure, you have mobile coverage with the operators that use Telia’s network.
 
For a longer day tour, climb one of the peaks Tjirak or Tjiraksnjurte. Follow Kungsleden northward approximately three kilometres, turn north-west and go around the steep south and east sides of Tjirak. From here, you can look into Sarek to the west, the steep mountain sides down to Lake Sitojaure, and Ultevis’ virgin forests and bogs in the extended lakes to the west.
 
During the summer season, the Sámis have regular boat service on the lake for hikers who want to connect to and from Kungsleden at Svine on the southern beach. For more information about boat service, please see www.sitojaure.com/en/

There are no rowing boats on Lake Sitojaure.
 
This is how it works in a mountain cabin
Our mountain cabins offer a simple and authentic stay in multi-bedded rooms with self catering. The rooms are different sizes with bunk beds and usually heated by gas stoves. 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.
