More about STF Unna Allakas Mountain cabin
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.
Please note that you can only pay with cash at this mountain cabin. Paying with Swish or debit card will not be possible.
