More about STF Sitojaure Mountain cabin
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. If simply getting wet inside is more your style, there is a nice cold spring only 50 metres from the guest cabin, where a wood troughing makes it easy to fill a water bottle or bucket.
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.
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. You can row during good weather – but it’s far!
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.
