On our way towards Tarrekaise we passed the Mountain Hut of Njunjes. The Stugvärd here gave us a warm welcome and some good tips about the next leg of our hike. Outside the Mountain Hut is a camping table, making it a perfect spot to stay for lunch. The water supply comes from the mountains above, transported down by an easy accessible hose, making the process of collecting fresh water an easy task. They even have a luxury of an outdoor shower cabin! One warning though.... the water is probably freezing cold! But showers are very rare in this area, so this certainly can be a luxury item :-)
There are no provisions for sale at the Mountain Hut, but there is a phone available in case of emergencies. There is one log cabin available that sleeps 20. Like all the Mountain Huts in this area, the Mountain Hut is never "full". Maybe there are no more beds available, but you can always take shelter inside the mountain hut and stay for the night, although this might mean sleeping on the floor.
The Mountain Hut is open: 09/3 - 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.

The Mountain Hut at Tarrekaise
The Mountain Hut of Tarrekaise is located on a nice spot at Lake Tarraure, surrounded by forest. There aren’t so much of alternative locations to put up your tent in the area, so we decided to stay here. You can either camp, like we did, or stay at one of the little Mountain cabins. There are 26 beds available at Tarrekaise: one bigger cabin, with 2 x 10 beds, and a smaller one with in total 6 beds. You can buy some supplies here, although very basic: canned food and food in packages, a limited selection of chocolate, candy, soft drinks, and even light beer. No fresh food though! There is a stugvärd around taking care of the properties and a phone available in case of emergencies. The mountain hut is open during winter and summer, but closed during spring and autumn. Open from 16/2 - 1/5, 30/6 - 09/9 (2007).
This Mountain Hut is owned by the STF (Swedish Tourist Society) and the quality of the mountain huts is often good and the stugvärd experienced. And unfortunately I have to say most of the time..... but not this time! I guess the mountain cabins were up to standard (I didn't take a look inside), but the stugvärd was inexperienced and couldn't give us any advice about the surrounding area. They regularly change the ones that are running the cabins though, so maybe you are more in luck then we were and are able to get some good advice about the surrounding area by the Stugvärd.
A stay at the mountain hut will cost you 195 SEK (for STF members) and 295 SEK for when you are not a member of the STF during low season. During high season (which is most of the time) it will cost 240 SEK for members, 340 SEK for non-members.
