At the foot of the highest mountain in Sweden south of the Arctic Circle lies the Helags mountain station. Skiers and hikers come here to climb the summit or to simply enjoy what the mountain station has to offer: good food, shopping facilities, and a relaxing sauna after their trip.
In 1897, the first hut was built on the site in order to facilitate those who took on the challenge of climbing to the top of Helags, some 750 meters above. These days, large numbers of skiers and hikers come to repeat the great feat and to enjoy the mountain station and its selection of food and facilities. In spite of the station being situated at such a high elevation, summertime at Helags treats visitors to green and flowery scenery. That might just be why the Arctic fox thrives here so well. Perhaps the largest population in the country of this endangered fox makes its home right here. Accommodation is offered in three huts with 4-bed rooms. For a more genuine adventure experience, you can stay in the wood-heated G Östan with one 5-bed room and a 9-bed room. Dinner is served at 6 pm and breakfast at 6 am. During the day, waffles and goulash are offered.
