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.
This is how it works in a mountain cabin
Our mountain cabins offer a simple and authentic stay in multi-bedded rooms with self catering. The rooms are different sizes with bunk beds and usually heated by gas stoves. On site you will be greeted by a cabin manager. As a guest you chop wood, fetch water from the stream or lake, wash up and clean up after youself.
