There are two trails Färdledarvägen and Sommarleden. Both trails lead to Låktatjåkko Mountain Lodge and are marked with red stone cairns. Färdledarvägen is a bit longer but reward you with beautiful views.
The northern trail is called Färdledarvägen. On the map Abisko-Björkliden-Riksgränsen it is marked with small black lines. On the map Fjällkartan BD6 it is marked with red dots.
From Hotell Fjället you take the gravel road towards the golf course, after approximately 500 m there is an information sign where the trail starts. Take to the left, and follow the signs towards Låktatjåkko. After one kilometer the trail splits in two. Hold to the right (north west) up towards the ridge, follow the red stone cairns which take you all the way up to Låktatjåkko Mountain Lodge. The first kilometer is pretty steep but it will flatten out when you reach the plateau Rákkasláhko. In the end of Rákkasláhko you will cross a smaller creek flowing from the north (right). The two trails come together but you will continue to follow the right one (straight ahead) and walk up on the snow field. Notice that the trail is a bit tricky to see here. After the ascent you will follow a ridge where you will have an amazing view over small lakes and both the Swedish and Norwegian mountains in the horizon. After about two kilometers the two trails come together again and you follow them to the Mountain Lodge.
The southern trail is called Sommarleden. Marked with red dots on both the Abisko-Björkliden-Riksgränsen map and Fjällkartan BD6.
Same start as Färdledarvägen. When the trail divides the first time you take the left trail that follow the river "Rakkasjokka". You walk along the trail that is marked with red stone cairns until you come up on the plateau Rákkasláhko, where you will cross a smaller river flowing from the north (right). The two trails come together but you will continue to follow the left one. Cross the snow field to south west and continue to walk on the trail, which is well marked. Two kilometers before you will reach the Mountain Lodge the two trails come together.
