Beautiful base for hiking in Padjelanta
About the accommodationSTF Ritsem is located next to the Ritsem Sámi camp and is an excellent starting point for hiking and skiing in the Áhkká massif, and the Sarek and Padjelanta National Parks. From here you’ll have a beautiful view of Áhkká and Akkajaures glittering beaches.
Here, you can take a coffee at the little restaurant and purchase smoked fish. Continue two kilometres along the Padjelanta Trail to STF Akka mountain hut. If the weather is good, there is a nice place to swim with cliffs near to a stream 300 metres from the hut. If fishing is your interest, continue towards the rapids in the Vuojatätno River and try your luck (fishing permit only applies from the western shore)
The church tent at the Sámi camp in Vaisaluokta should definitely be visited. A popular church weekend is held here each year at the beginning of July.
Those searching for a real challenge can climb Mount Kallatjåkka on the Ritsem side of Lake Akkajaure – expect a very long and hard day that is rewarded during the winter with a long, pleasant ski run back down. A much easier tour is to climb up towards Stuor Sievgok north-west of the hut.
