At the foot of Sweden’s highest peak south of the Arctic Circle, 1,797 m.a.s.l., is Sweden’s southernmost glacier and STF’s new mountain lodge. Two-footed arctic foxes are usual, and you might see the four-footed fox if you’re lucky.

The first hut was built onsite in 1897 to facilitate the climbing of Helags peak, 750 altitude metres above. Today, large crowds of skiers and hikers come to redo this exploit and enjoy the mountain lodge’s offering of served meals, shop and a relaxing sauna after the tour.

Despite the high location, the region is green with a profusion of flowers during the summer. Perhaps this is why the arctic fox enjoys it so much here. The threatened fox has possibly its largest population in Sweden right here.

Already during the Middle Ages, pilgrims hiked through the Helags area on their way Nidaros (now Trondheim) to visit Olaf’s sacred grave. Traces of what is believed to be a Middle Age overnight hut are at the foot of the Predikstol mountains. A Viking Age sword has also been found here.
