Other lodge facilities include a wood-heated sauna, an outdoor hot tub and a turf-covered log house where guests gather around the fire on reindeer furs.

Husky safari

Owner Sven was 11-time winner of Europe's longest dogsled race, the 1,000km-longh Finnmarksløpet. This experience has been key to the success of his hugely popular husky safaris, which you'll get to enjoy today, driving your own team of happy and eager huskies through the Arctic wilderness. Keep an eye out for moose and enjoy lunch round an open fire while out on safari. Return to the lodge in the afternoon, where there's an option to book the hot tub and sauna for private use.
