Darregájsse (Tarrekaise)

Svårighetsgrad: null

The tourist cabin at Darregájsse (Tarrekaise) lies on the Badjelánnda Trail at the entrance to Laponia World Heritage Area if you are hiking north-west from Huhttán/Kvikkjokk. The cabin lies embedded in verdant birch forest on the north shore of Lake Darrejávrre.

The first tourist cabin built in the mountains stood on a site not far from the present-day cabin. The Darreädno shelter, a short way up along the river, was completed in 1889. It lies on the Arctic Trail, which turns off the Badjelánnda Trail and continues towards Sulidälbmá and the Norwegian border. In those days it was thought that Sulidälbmá was Sweden’s highest mountain, which inspired many people to hike from Huhttán/Kvikkjokk towards the snowclad summits in the west.
