Fiskerhytten [438-4] is a former trappers' hut, located about ½ km west of the Zackenberg trappers' station. In 2008 the hut was restored by Nanok. Fiskerhytten is well suited as temporary base camp for 1-2 persons. Visitors are welcome to use the hut and the supplies during the stay. The hut must always be left only in a good condition, meaning:

  • Any damages repaired
  • All doors and windows / shutters securely closed
  • Coal stove cleaned for ashes and ready for use
  • Hut nicely swept and cleaned
  • Coal bucket filled with coal
  • Pieces of firewood put in paraffin
  • Hut lamp filled and the glass removed
  • Matchboxes with matches ready in opening
  • Snow shovel secured and visible on the outside of the hut
  • Never use all coal and fuel
  • No garbage or open and smelling food in or near the hut
  • Never leave any food opened or unopened. The smell attracts polar bears

Note: Due to possible damage by polar bears the present condition of the hut is not known.
