Future plans

Hellsten Hotels took over Kvikkjokk Mountain Lodge about a year ago. Already from the very beginning I clearly stated to each and everybody, that it will be a five year period for us to do what I want; to upgrade parts to hotel standard and to freshen up the hostel parts and add more rooms, and above all to add quality service and quality restaurant to the facilities in Kvikkjokk.

One of the first tourists here, Carl von Linné, visited Kvikkjokk in 1732 during his trip of Lappland. His poetic botanic descriptions inspired many to come here to one of the mountain world’s absolute treasures. Beginning a tour of Sarek from Kvikkjokk is ideal.

The village is one of the oldest Swedish settlements in Lappland. During the 1600s, Kvikkjokk was a local metropolis and a centre for silver ore processing from the mine in Mount Alkavare in Sarek. Botanists meet close to the village, but no expert knowledge is needed to enjoy the profusion of flowers.

The delta that forms where the rivers Tarraälven and Kamajokk meet the lake Saggat invites visitors to wonderful paddling tours. Here, you can see the well-known giant elk that are attracted by the luscious pasture. It isn’t unusual further up the valley Tarradalen to come across bear tracks.

Day tours by foot go to the nearby hill Prinskullen and to Vallespiken on the border to Sarek. At 1,400 m.a.s.l., you have an unparalleled view into Sarek with the wild valley Tjuoltavagge way below your feet and the mountain Pårtetjåkka’s 2,000-metre peak to the north. To the north-east, look at the profusion of birds in the plains at Pårek, with all its meres and bogs – a must for the bird enthusiast who can consider going north of Kungsleden (Royal Trail).

Besides Kungsleden being nearby, Padjelanta Trail and Nordkalott Trail both have their southern ends here.

  • Enkel standard

    Det är synd att inte denna fjällstation fått mer stöd för upprustning och utveckling. Intrycket är slitet och nedgånget men platsen och servicen är det absolut inget fel på. Jämfört med många andra vandrarhem är det lägre standard, och jag vet inte om man kan skylla på att det är just en avlägset belägen fjällstation - Abisko har man ju satsat mycket på. Det är synd att inte utveckla eftersom potentialen finns.

  • Only for kungsleden backpackers

    Focused on kungsleden backpackers. Poor one day hikes information, poor level of information for turism beside the main activity focus. Smell an cleanliness could be improved substantially. Not proper location and activities for more than 2-3 days stay. This should be warned and more flexibility for cancellation policy. Mosquitos specially annoying, no measures taken until asking.

  • Bra service, god mat, gott helhetsomdöme. Tycker dock att bastun var en besvikelse, en alltför liten bastu utan dusch och med svårigheter att ta ett dopp i jokken. Om möjligt, bygg en ny bastu vid stranden! Tycker också att den fina gamla delen av stationen borde utnyttjas bättre. Vi satt ofta på övervåningen, helt ensamma (vilket i och för sig var skönt, som omväxling mot det ofta röriga och överbefolkade allrummet utanför receptionen).

  • Rörig omständlig planering ex med väldigt lång vandring till dusch vid bastubad. Inga toaletter i anslutning till boendet. Ständigt av och på med skor jobbigt. Restarang kök och servering dock väldigt bra. Boende delar väldigt slitna och omöjligt att utestänga från mygg.

  • Fint och lämpligt läge för vandrare

    Stannade bara en natt, men det var fint och trevligt på alla sätt och vis. Praktiskt beläget vid Kungsleden. Lite omståndigt att behöva gå mellan byggnader för självhushåll.

  • Jag tycker att många i personalen var så orutinerad. En liten genomgång i hur man serverar o tar beställningar skulle inte skada. Vi fick vänta o vänta pågår mat o dryck. De hade ingen "koll" på läget. Sedan tycker jag att en uppfräschning av toaletter o duschar vore bra. Varför inte bygga en altan ut mot älven?' Det skulle gå att få till det riktigt bra.

  • Stationen återupprättad

    Jag har besökt Kvikkjokk fjällstation sen 70-talet. Mitt första intryck: jag blev imponerad av läget vid Kamajokk - och matsalens fondbild av Tore Abrahamsson över topparna från Luottlako. Senare försvann den bilden samtidigt som standarden på stationen föll; inredningen i matsalen var nu typ konventionell vägkrog med dålig inredningssmak. Ett annat viktigt intryck: parkeringsplatsen som anlades ovanför stationen förstör vildmarkskänslan. Likaså nedhuggningen av urskogen runt Kvikkjokk; för detta känner jag bara sorg varje gång jag måste hasa mig själv och 30kg-packningen över kullfallna träd längs stigen upp mot Pårek (sommartrid). Nå det kan kanske inte stationen göra så mycket åt. Besöket nyligen återupprättar mitt förtroende för själva stationen. Här kunde jag nu äta en renrätt som smälte på tungan; och en god röding från fjällsjöarna. Kanske inte billigt men definitivt värt pengarna. Tack för det!

    Fantastisk natur, väldigt god mat, hjälpsam och trevlig personal som kompenserar det ganska slitna anläggningen. Kommer gärna tillbaka.
