At the moment the cabin is not suitable for children under 10 years old due to some ongoing construction , Sorry.

The cabin was built in the sixties and we have kept it that way , and we try to create that feeling of surviving in a wilderness area ,which is not far wrong ,even although everything needed for your stay is at the cabin.
There is no electricity in the cabins in winter.
And no running water from october to end of april.
Solar power is in summer months only.
It would spoil the beauty of the wilderness and that feeling of being out in the middle of no where.
There is enogh solar power for mobile phone charging and a reception on most mobile networks.
We are aurora hunters, guides and photographers and when the northern lights are dancing over your heads at the cabin, i guarantee you will be awe struck.
The cabin area is still very dark with minimum light pollution as we call it , and is growing like a cancer and very soon there will be no dark areas to view the night skies .
And in summer we have 24 hour day light and that is an experience on its own.
We have parking on road side directly below the cabin.
There is a slight walk up to the cabin around a 100 yards or more .
It entails a steep gradual walk up a hillside through the birch tree's which could be covered in snow in the winter months.
A good level of fitness is required for this rural winter wonderland.
Temperatures can fall to -20 in this area and all outside water supply will be frozen all winter.
Hence we use the wood stove to thaw out any frozen water in the winter months.
