About the accommodation

The mountain cabin is on the shore of Lake Vistasjåkka on the hiking trail between Alesjaure and Nikkaluokta. This is a verdant oasis among the towering mountains, snow and glaciers. Vistaskåtan, the first tourist facility in the Kebnekaise area, was built here.

The present cabins are located in the same place, wonderfully encircled in Vistas valley of birch forest. The long valley is abundant in reindeer, elk and grouse, and you can also see wolverine and lynx tracks.
 
From STF Vistas, you can do both shorter promenades and more demanding full day tours. A few kilometres from the mountain cabin is a waterfall. If you get really close, you can experience this show from the flat rock slab. Also try the steep climb towards Mårma. You will feel it in your legs, but the brilliant view is worth the reward.

If you go onward to STF Nallo and want to do a different route, hiking around Räittatjåkka massif is a good suggestion. The tour goes through an exquisitely beautiful high alpine landscape.

Please note that you can only pay with cash at this mountain cabin. Paying with Swish or debit card will not be possible.
 
This is how it works in a mountain cabin
Our mountain cabins offer a simple and authentic stay in multi-bedded rooms with self catering. The rooms are different sizes with bunk beds and usually heated by gas stoves. On site you will be greeted by a cabin manager. As a guest you chop wood, fetch water from the stream or lake, wash up and clean up after youself.

The distance from Nikkaluokta to STF Vistas is about 34 km. In summer, you can take a boat up the Vistasälven and reduce the distance you walk by about 10 km.
