More about STF Unna Allakas 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.
The mountain cabin is a good starting point for a visit to the old mining area Sjangeli, four kilometres north. Mining was conducted here from the end of the 1600s until 1840. The mining town is nicely located near the beach of a lake and the view towards the Norwegian mountains to the west is fantastic. Today, wood barracks, a stone house and pit reminds us of this era in mining. Gabna Sámi village has a summer camp nearby. 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.
During the Second World War, the cabin was a refuge for the Norwegian resistance movement. Designated Sepal 2 “Anna”, this place was used to plan sabotage and carry out espionage on German activities in the area on the other side of the border.
