Two cottages near the outflow of Vuojatädno into Áhkájávrre about 1.5 km from the Änonjálmme Sámi encampment, where the jetty for the STF passenger boat M/S Storlule is situated – there are regular tours several times a day between Änonjálmme, Ritsem and Vaisaluokta. The cottages serve as the natural base for tours up into the imposing Áhkká massif on the other side of Vuojatädno in both summer and winter. There is also a small sauna here, cared for by the guests themselves.
