Located in the province of Nordland, close to the glacier Okstindan, the Rabot Cabin is the latest addition to The Norwegian Trekking Association’s collection of spectacular self-service refuges for hikers exploring the challenging northern terrain. The cabin, which is only accessible on foot or skis, was designed by Jarmund/Vigsnæs Arkitekter, who drew inspiration from the rock-strewn landscapes, and named it after Charles Rabot (1856-1944), a French glaciologist and geographer known for his courageous expeditions in the area in the 1880s. To this day, visiting the remote location is not without risk; a rescue hut is located 50 metres away, should the main cabin be wrecked by one of the frequent storms in the area.
