Breakfast and other meals is not bookable during the winter. We recommend that you bring your own food and store it in a cooling box that insulate and prevents the food from freezing. You can also be purchased in Skinnskatteberg and then immediately cook the food over the open fire. Primitive cooking equipment can be borrowed. We can help you with some advice if you need.
Drinking water will be assigned to each hut, kep it in the hut so it does not freeze. It is also possible to melt snow for cooking, make coffee, etc.
