Áhkká (Lule Sami: "old woman"), also known in its "Swedified" form Akka, is a massif in the southwestern corner of Stora Sjöfallet National Park in northern Sweden.

The massif has eleven individual peaks, of which "Stortoppen" is the highest at 2,015 metres (6,611 ft). This peak is only the eighth highest in Sweden, but it takes the prominence of Áhkká to more than 1,500 metres, which is the highest in Sweden. Due to this and the fact that the massif is well held together and rather isolated, it has an impressive appearance, earning it the nickname "Queen of Lapland". In the Sámi tradition it is a holy mountain, and many wanderers regard it with a sense of awe and mystique.
