STF Akka Mountain cabin
The location and surroundings make this mountain cabin popular among widely diverse groups, like families with children and alpinists. It’s only two kilometres from the boat landing near Änonjálmme to STF Akka, which makes getting here easy for families with children who want to use the cabin as a base camp for few days. Fishing, short hikes and swimming with rock slabs along the stream attract both children and adults.
The easiest alpine tour is to Pålnotjåkko Peak, from where you gain a panoramic view towards Áhkká and Padjelanta – the highest in the country. Only 300 metres from the cabin, near the beach at Akkajaure, is a field 200 metres long and 100 metres wide with possibly the largest concentration of Moor-king in northern Lapland. Skiing in area is superb, with all types accessible. For those who want that little extra, they can dream of Áhkkás massive peak, 2,015 m.a.s.l. From the peak goes one of Sweden’s greatest ski runs – a change in altitude of an amazing 1,500 metres down to the lake.
A 200-metre icefall can be climbed on the northwest side of the massif. The first known climb from the valley straight up to point 1004 was done in March 2008 by two Polish climbers.
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.
