Welcome to STF Helags Mountain Station – STF’s youngest station is situated with a view up towards Helagstoppen (1797 metres above sea level) and towards Sweden’s southernmost glacier.
The first cabin was built in this location in 1897 to facilitate the ascent of Helagstoppen, 750 metres above. Today many skiers and hikers arrive in order to repeat the feat and to enjoy the mountain station’s selection of good food, shop and a relaxing sauna after their excursion.
Despite the high altitude, it is still green and full of flowers here in summer. Perhaps that is why the Arctic fox likes it so much here. It is here that this endangered fox has what is perhaps its strongest population in Sweden.
Accommodation is in three cabins with four-bed rooms and one eight-bed room. If you want accommodation that is a bit more authentic, you can stay in the wood-fired Gamla Östan, which has a five-bed room and a nine-bed room.
We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner all days. Breakfast is served at 7:00-9:15 during summer. If there are many guests you will be given a time slot, in order for us to keep distance. During the day, 11:00-16:00, we offer yummy waffles and goulash. Our dinner starts with a presentation at 17:30 and 19:30 every day during summer. You will be given a time for dinner when you check in! The dinner is a set menu, so make sure to let us know if you have any allergies or if you prefer vegetarian or vegan food, before arrival. Swedish fika could be bought all day! If you need to purchase any supplies or sports equipment, you can do so in our shop.
