More about STF Tarfala Mountain cabin
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.
Tarfala is the most high alpine cabin of all STF mountain cabin. Day tours here from Kebnekaise Mountain Station are common. From Tarfala, you feel the distance to the large glaciers and peaks. The cabin is surrounded by several peaks over 2,000 metres high – Kebnekaise’s north and south peak, Kaskasapakte and Kaskasatjåkka.
The icefall glacier with its fascinating crack formations is very close to the cabin. If you want to get close to Kebnepakte glacier, you can walk the trail north to Lake Tarfalajaure. Observe the glacier from a distance if you lack knowledge or experience, or go along with one of Kebnekaise’s guides on a glacier hike.
