A number of buildings at the foot of Helags, which at 1797 m is the highest Swedish massif south of the Arctic Circle, and it also hosts the country's southernmost glacier. Since the winter of 2007 this facility is classified as a fjeld station, and there is merit for this – it is electrified, there are actual showers, a large sauna and a small shop, and simple dishes are also served. There is, however, no running water in the accommodation buildings, and neither are there water closets. It is possible to order transport from Kläppen – by snowcat in the winter and by helicopter in the summer.
