Welcome to our hostel

Being next to Sweden’s highest mountain requires a dose of humility. The mountain guides and custodians share a respect for nature’s forces, as their will to carefully show you the way up. This year is 100 years since the first guests came to Kebnekaise.

If you want, life at the mountain lodge can offer difficulty with demanding alpine tours, climbing courses on rock or ice, ski mountaineering, glacier walking and cross-country running over mountain moors. But your stay can also be almost spiritual with excursions in the valley under an open horizon, hikes along Kungsleden (Royal Trail), freedom and absolute calm.

After a day of mountain wind, reflection and perhaps many metres of altitude, sit down in the warmth of a fire and dream a while. A delicious three-course meal awaits before you go for a good night’s sleep. Before your next tour, eat a hearty breakfast with newly-baked bread.

STF has a long history at Kebnekaise and throughout the years, lasting traditions have developed. People still gather around the fire in the oldest part of the mountain lodge, Stenhyddan, after 100 years to share their thoughts after the day’s outings and give each other tips before the next adventure.

Additional fee for non-members : 100 SEK per person per night

All members of staff were friendly and tried to be helpful. On the second night we had a private room Elsarum and that was excellent The boot drying machine was brilliant A greater range of dried food in the shop would be appreciated

All members of staff were friendly and helpful but they struggled to find my booking details even though I had prints of the emails As a consequence we had to move. Initially we were given one new location llater we were given another namely Elsarum. Victoria was very helpful and we were delighted with The boot drying aperatus was brilliant The range of dred foods could be improved, we found better varieties of dried food on the trail Overall my friend and I really enjoyed our stay

Wonderful to have electricity, running water, mobile phone and WIFI after 5 days of trekking Kungsleden. The computerised check-in process was very slow since all data passes to and from Stockholm on a slow connection. But in every other way service was very efficient. Wonderful restaurant for evening meal, a bit expensive, but very much appreciated after 5 days trekking. Great breakfast there and more reasonably priced.
