  The little blue dot to the left is our tent
by sim1

The warmest welcome I had was here, at the Mountain Hut at Alesjaure. We arrived very early in the day (around 1:30 or 2 or something like that). Most hikers don't arrive before 4 o'clock in the afternoon, so it was rather quiet at the Mountain Hut. But the welcome of the staff was so nice and heart warming. I felt at home here right away!

You can camp at the Mountain Hut itself, but they were very friendly and gave us the tip that camping just outside the Mountain Hut area would be for free! A perfect combination of having the luxury of the Hut in the area, but without paying the camping fee. So nice of them! So that's what we did! We crossed the bridge over the river and set up our tent. A big and good lunch was prepared in the kitchen and we enjoyed a lazy afternoon.

Sitting on a little bench in front of the mountain hut we looked down on the surrounding area. Down there, just across the hanging bridge, a bit to the left at the river you can see a tiny blue dot.... our tent and resting place for the night. It's quite the climb up and down to the mountain hut, but it is just perfect. It was nice and quiet down there, and we found a rather secluded spot, away from all the other tents. And from up here, on this little bench in front of the Hut, you have stunning views over the valley.
