Two cottages (and nowadays also a sauna) north of Lájtávrre, right next to the settlement called Aktse (there is also another cottage belonging to the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation nearby). This place is often called the gate to Sarek, and the view into Rapadalen, with Tjahkelij and Skierffe flanking Nammásj is one of the most classic photo motifs in Swedish outdoor history. Nowadays the aforementioned settlement is inhabited for most of the year, and during the summer season boat tours are offered to tourists, in three directions: straight across the lake (Kungsleden), upstream Ráhpaädno to the border of Sarek, and eastwards to the so-called bicycle track, which in turn leads to a car road at the Sijddoädno bridge. The latter route is often employed as a "shortcut" to Aktse, breaking off the Kvikkjokk road around Tjåmotis.
