More about STF Stensdalen Mountain cabin
The summer offers fine orchids, while a bounty of chanterelles awaits you in the autumn. The site is a site of historic interest – the Sami people ran a school here in days past. Even today, the dwellings they used when harvesting peat can be found here, as can also remains of reindeer fencing in the birch forests.
The mountain cabin lies along the trail between Vålådalen and Sylarna. You can make excursions from the cabin to Lillstensdalfjället, Storstensdalen and Östra Bunnerskalet. You will be able to see dippers down at Stensån dive to the bottom and seek food in the flowing water. Stensån is perfect for a quick dip after a hot sauna, in summer and in winter.
This is how it works in a mountain cabin
In a mountain cabin you stay cozy and easy with self catering in multi-bedded rooms. 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. The rooms are different sizes with bunk beds and usually heated by gas stoves. All mountain cabins offer accommodation for guests with dogs. You can not pre-book a specific room or bed - the principle is that you are guranteed a place to sleep. You can pre-pay an unspecified place to sleep on STF's website. An unspecified bed means either a regular bed or a comfortable mattress on the floor. Quilts, pillows and blankets are given for both sleeping options. You need to bring your own bed linen or a sleeping bag. Many of our cabins have shops where you can resupply. Some of these stores also sell gas cylinders, T-fuel, mountain maps and mosquito repellent. Several of the cabins also have a wood-fired sauna.
