STF Vakkotavare Mountain cabin

More about STF Vakkotavare Mountain cabin

The climbing is demanding and you have to count on sweating a little before being rewarded for your hardship – an almost breathtaking view over the snow covered peaks of Akkajaure, Sarek and Áhkká. A few hundred metres from the cabin is good fishing in Lake Akkajaure, where the rapids have their outflow. Also, feel free to visit the Suorva warehouse and dam construction that has made this Sweden’s largest regulation warehouse.

The mountain cabin has its own bus stop with daily connections to STF Ritsem, STF Saltoluokta and Gällivare.

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.
