STF Tarrekaise Mountain cabin
Lush greenery with a view of the peaks along Padjelantaleden
About the accommodationSTF Tarrekaise lies embedded in luxuriant vegetation by the northern shore of Tarraure. The mountain cabin is on the Padjelantaleden hiking trail between Kvikkjokk and Staloluokta. The view from the cabin across the double peak of Staikas Mountain, on the two sides of a dazzling glacier, is striking.
Take a nice cooling dip when you arrive. There is a bathing spot in Tarraure, where the mountains reflect beautifully in the water.
Above the mountain cabin lies the small mountain plateau Hilldo, with its spectacular view over the Tarra Valley – a good, secluded place for relaxation and meditation. For those who want to feel a little of a sense of history, there is the old Tarra River cabin five kilometres away along the trail to Vaimok. The cabin, from 1887, is today STF’s oldest building and an excellent outing destination.
The Tarra Valley has a rich flora with the Northern Wolfsbane, Globe-flower, Alpine Lady-Fern and Moor-king. And the area has true bird life with, among others, grouse, black grouse, tufted duck and the Long-tailed Skua. Walk quietly along the trail and with a little luck, you can come in close contact with the large elk grazing in the lush birch forest.
