Staying at the log cabin of Såmmarlappa itself or put up your tent on their grounds, seems like the best option during this part of the hike.
If you are looking for alternative places, you might discover that your options are very limited. Because of the dense growth of trees and shrubs, there aren't that many open areas to accomodate your tent. The views from these places aren't the most breathtaking either (just trees and the hiking trail), and on top of that it might be hard to find a stream with fresh water. So we didn't see a better option then to stay here, on the grounds of the log cabin of Såmmarlappa. The clear advantage of course is that you can use their facilities for a minor fee. And at this place that was absolutely perfect! The Stugvärd was a busy bee, making sure that the mountain hut was in tip top condition and everyone received a warm welcome. We even were served fresh baked cake upon arrival! A luxury I never imagined possible in a remote area like this, with no power and no running water.
The Log Cabin is rather small with 18 beds. But as demands aren't that high, it doesn't really fill up, not even during high season. The inside is cosy and warm and as a real bonus they have a relatively big assortment of provisions. The camping spots are located on the side of the river, slightly removed from the log cabin. But I need to give a word of warning though: the ground isn't very level, making for a rather bumpy sleeping place.
The Mountain Hut is open: 16/2 - 1/5, 30/6 - 09/9 (2007). Costs per person per night: 195 SEK for members of the STF, 295 SEK for non-members (during normal season). During high season (19/3 - end of season) it will cost 240 SEK for member and 340 SEK for non-members.
Camping fee is 40 SEK per person per night, non-member 60 SEK.
