About

Activity adventure | Natural world | Northern Lights

Location

Situated in the northernmost tip of Norway, in a valley next to the Krokelva River, the lodge is just a 23km complimentary Range Rover ride from Alta airport. The area, while ideally suited for outdoor pursuits such as hiking and dog sledding is probably best known as an unrivalled vantage point for viewing the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights. A naturally occurring phenomenon, the sweeping green light display is a breath-taking experience. The region also offers unique angling opportunities with ice fishing available in the winter and fly-fishing in the summer.

Accommodation

The lodge’s accommodation comes in the form of 16 cosy log cabins. While each room has its own distinctive décor and style, all come with extra thick duvets and an array of charming handmade wooden furnishings. Choose between the standard rooms or larger superiors with each interior clad in tongue and groove timber and locally sourced wooden floorboards. In the summer, the snow peels back to reveal sculpted banks and typically Scandinavian grass-covered roofs.

Dining

Staying faithful to tradition, the lodge’s onsite restaurant uses locally sourced ingredients wherever possible. Its hearty dishes are the perfect way to a round off a day spent in the snow. Norwegian game such as reindeer, elk, hare, grouse, duck and goose form the centre-point of a menu which also features excellent local fish including salmon and trout caught in nearby rivers. There are also handpicked berries and mushrooms native to the Atla region and, for the more adventurous, there’s even expertly prepared wild sheep, boar and seal.

Facilities

The lodge presents the perfect mix of outdoor activity and indoor comfort. Whether by dogsled, snowmobile or simply by foot, Ongajok’s organised tours allow you to experience the incredible beauty of this northern wilderness. A real highlight is the Northern Lights safari. In the warmer months, guests can enjoy fly-fishing, cross-country cycling and river boat cruises. Back at base, the outdoor hot tub with views of the Aurora Borealis and “midnight sun” is ideal for warming you up. The sauna and relaxation centre don’t hurt either.

Winter at Ongajok Mountain Resort

4-day tailor-made break

Ongajok Mountain Lodge is tucked away in the remote far north of Arctic Lapland, about 25km from Alta. Often it's the hardest places to reach that are the most rewarding but the splendid isolation of this remote mountain farm is well worth all the effort.
