Accommodation / Norway

Engholm Husky Farm

Karasjok is the centre for Sámi culture in the wilds of Lapland and Engholm Husky Farm and cabins are located 6km from the main village. This accommodation, situated in the remote forests of North East Norway, provides a wonderful introduction to the Sámi culture within this remote region.

All cabins are decorated with local items that the owner (and resident interior designer) Sven has collected and crafted from natural materials scavenged from nature in the area around the lodge.

When out mushing, your host may see a piece of wood that would make a coat hanger, a shelf, a lampstand, anything really. He uses his GPS to pinpoint its location and then picks it up next time he’s passing and fashions it into something both useful and remarkable. Lampshades made from bird feathers, comfy seats and dining tables hanging by ropes from the ceiling, reindeer skin stool covers and much, much more. Everywhere you look there is something that reflects living here in the Arctic. Your stay is made extra special by dishes served in the cosy dining area including locally sourced reindeer and fish.

Aside from the unique collection of log cabins the lodge is also a working husky farm that is home to about 50 working dogs - so be prepared for the wolf-like calls of the dogs in the morning.

Hotel facilities

There are only eight individually designed cabins here, each with Wi-Fi access. Each of these cabins has sleeping facilities for between two and six people, with the majority having log fireplaces and their own toilet and shower - those without, have access to a large bathroom in the main building. The lodge also offers a sauna and a hot tub, with intoxicating views of the surrounding scenery.
