More about STF Vaimok Mountain cabin
If you want an overview of the surroundings, trot up the rocky path to Vajmok cliff. From here, look at Sulitelma to the west, Fierrovagges steep wall to the north and Staika’s two peaks to the south-east.
The area’s nearest lake is bare and rocky, but a few kilometres along the trail towards Pieskehaure, a verdant moor spreads out. Wolverine and the occasional Lapland owl are present.
During the summer, most outings take place at the north side of the lake, where the mountain cabin is located. Winter opens up unimaginable possibilities if you go skiing over the lake. Many nice and more difficult challenges await those who want to carve a few telemark turns. Weekend visits here in April are busy when the sun gets really warm. Lying on a reindeer skin with a jig rod and fishing up char on the lake then becomes popular.
A shortcut to Tarra Valley, if you can use a map and compass, is to walk through the unmarked landscape of the Fierrovagge Valley and down towards STF Såmmarlappa. It’s easy walking, but very good orienteering skills are needed when you reach the mountain forest before the Tarra River. A ferry over to STF Såmmarlappa is available.
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.
