The stopping-place has road access from the north and south, and there is plenty of space for both small and larger vehicles to park. Four buildings are positioned close together like a small yard, whilst a grill-house is situated somewhat nearer the fjord. The site has been chosen in order to create a feeling of intimacy and proximity precisely due to the magnificent scenery around. Building 1 comprises a kiosk and toilet block: camping vans and campers are allowed to use the site as well. Buildings 2 and 3 are two open sales booths for Sami arts and crafts. This is where the Sami sell their special handicrafts, duodji, beautifully fashioned articles made of horn, bone, leather and wood. The sale of duodji has long been an important source of income for the Sami. Building 4 is an open information board under a pyramidal roof. Round about there are tables and benches made of thick wooden planking, where visitors can sit down. During the winter these are stored in buildings 2 and 3.

This photograph was taken in the early spring, showing from left to right: the grill-house
the information house, before the information was set out
one of the sales booths, where the tables and benches have been stored. In the right-hand corner is the kiosk and toilet block.
