Two cottages at the outflow of Gamaeatnu into Ábeskojávri – the largest one is actually an old barrack used in the construction of the Kiruna-Narvik railroad. This is the first cottage site one encounters after starting on Kungsleden from the north, and due to this and the easily trodden trail from Abisko the beds tend to fill up fast at the height of the tourist seasons.
