One cottage beside the car road to Ritsem, where Kungsleden reaches Suorvajávrre. It is typically employed as a start or end point for travellers on said trail, who seldom stick around for long. The shop which has previously been here will be retired during the winter of 2021.

NOTE: There is no open room in this cottage during the off-season months, and neither is there an assistance phone.
