This mountain cabin accepts payment by Swish but also bring some cash with you on your hike. Telecommunications do not always work in the mountains. Payment by card is not accepted at STF Syter mountain cabin.
Kungsleden (Royal Trail) passes the cabin and onwards over the archipelago into the southern part Lake Tärna, over five suspension bridges and two beam bridges. Only a few kilometres from the cabin, this lake archipelago is a wonderful outing destination.
Also, take advantage and discover Syterskalet, a u-shaped valley with extremely steep mountain sides and a verdant valley floor where Syter Stream finds its way.
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.
