At lake Jirejaure on the approach to Jireskalet there is an open cabin with four beds, 8 km from the village Umasjö. The cabin has an emergency telephone. There is rose quartz just outside the cabin.

Three km further into Jireskalet, 11 km from the road, lies the Glimmerstugan cabin. Mica was quarried here from the 1930s until 1952. Thin sheets of this slate mineral were used as insulation in electric motors and as windows in stoves. The cabin was restored by the Västerbotten county administrative board in 1995. It has four beds and is available for public use.
