STF Aktse Mountain cabin

More about STF Aktse Mountain cabin

If you’re in Aktse, the Skierfe cliff is a must. You will walk by Aktsekallio (nine stones) on the way up to Skierfe. The stones are an ancient and sacred place of sacrifice and it is said that nine bears have been killed here. With its almost 700 metres of vertical descent, the view from Skierfe over the Rapa River delta, Lake Laitaure and in to Sarek is magnificent.

The easiest way to visit STF Aktse is to take the road up from Tjåmotis to the Sito River bridge. From there, walk about ten kilometres along a forest road to the boat landing at the east end of Laitaure. The other way into Aktse is along Kungsleden, which passes right over Lake Laitaure. During the summer, a daily water taxi is available. Those who wish to give their arm muscles a workout can row, but bear in mind that the lake is big and very vulnerable to weather.

Our mountain cabins usually do not have electricity, and mobile phone coverage often does not reach them. This means that our cabin managers do not have the facilities required to handle a modern booking system. If you have paid for accommodation in advance, you will be met by a welcoming and dedicated cabin manager who will not know about your advance payment. The manager will, naturally, ensure that you obtain the best possible accommodation. If you provided extra information in the “Comments” field when making your booking, we will do everything in our power to inform the cabin manager of this. We hope, however, that you understand that this is not always possible.

Remember to take confirmation of your prepayment with you.


It is cheaper to buy the accommodation online, then when you are at the mountain cabin.
