The Vuojatätno forms the outflow of Lake Vastenjaure in the Padjelanta National Park . Its direction of flow is east-northeast. After 8 km the Varka, the outflow of the Sallohaure , flows into the Vuojatätno from the left. After another 7 km the Vuojatätno flows into the Kutjaure , which is also fed from the north by Sieperjåkkå . Shortly after leaving the Kutjaure, the Sjnjuftjutisjåkkå coming from the south meets the Vuojatätno. It now forms the northern border of the Stora Sjöfallet National Park . After a total of 28 km the Vuojatätno reaches the Akkajaure , the water level of which varies greatly due to its regulation.
The Vuojatätno thus forms the main source river of the Stora Luleälven . It drains the entire Padjelanta area, in the south to the Sulitjelma massif , in the west to the Norwegian border and in the east the western and central parts of the Sarek Mountains .
Due to its location, almost the entire catchment area and the entire course of the river are located in protected areas and in a region rich in precipitation and partially glaciated, the Vuojatätno is a water-rich and natural stream. There are several rapids. The Padjelantaleden runs not far from its south bank and crosses it shortly before it flows into the Akkajaure.
