    Cabin description

    On a trip between Brøttem and Støren autumn 1963 two guys found a nice place not far away from Kråklivollen. After besieging the owners, Sør-Trøndelag E-verk, in four days, for getting the permission to build there, they could start. The office of the Norsk Luthersk Misjonssamband was destructed and in modified version rebuilt at Kråklia.

    New year 1964 the small cabin was opened. Inside you could find a bed (2x3m), a stump, an oven, a bed table and some floor. When the Studenterhytta got a new roof in 1971, Kråklikåten got the old one as floor. Now the cabin has several beds, a table and a window. Anyhow it's a small cabin without much comfort. It's nice situated and every year the cabin is washed by the river in spring.

    Kråkfjellet and Reinsfjellet are two possible targets for trips. It's also possible to go over to Nicokoia or Lynhøgen.


    Route description

    It's easiest to come by car. You take the road from Lundamo up to Håen. From here you take a path along the stream Kråka. The cabin is not good visible from the path. It's situated 15 minutes from the path in a u-turn of the river you have to cross. In the cabin book you can read a lot about wet feet. Bring gumboots!

    A longer trip is from Brøttem. Here you can come by bus (see Nicokoia). From Selbusjøen you have to follow the road along Selbusjøen up to Dønnøysætra. Here you will meet a new road. You have to pass Olavatnet and Søringen on the southside and go towards Brungfjellet and Sandafjellet, where you have a nice view! Then go down to Kløftvatnet, pass it on the east side and go over to Svarttjønnin and Kråksjøen. The last four kilometres you can go along Kråka down to the cabin. This trip takes about 6-7 hours.

    It's also possible to take the train or bus to Gauldalen and start from there. You can for example leave the bus at Rognes and follow the path to Skilbreitjønna and go down to Håen from there.

    If you want leave the cabin and don't have car, you can always choose another route back. For example you can try to come to Støren, from where you can take bus or train to Trondheim. This is a nice, but also demanding trip in winter and is recommended for experienced skiers only.
