Sårjåsjávrre

Svårighetsgrad: null

The little red cabin stands were the lake empties into Sårjåsjávrre and is one of STF’s oldest mounting cabins, built when mountain tourism was in its infancy in the 1920s. It is a stunningly beautiful area. The lake lies embedded among high, snowclad mountain cliffs and in the south-west towers the mighty Sulidälbmá massif. The water is made turquoise by sludge from the glaciers high up around the lake. Below the cabin porch, at the mouth of Lake Sårjåsjávrre, the water forms a foaming waterfall that crashes down through a narrow rocky canyon.

This is foraging land used by Tuorpon Sámi community and on warm days the reindeer make their way up towards the glaciers and snow, to find cool air and escape the insects.
