Holmen Husky Lodge

kvaenangen, norway

Holmen Husky Lodge lies just outside Alta, the City of the Northern Lights. This city is nestled at the end of Altafjord, far up in the north of Norway. Just outside this arctic town, you’ll find Holmen Husky Lodge.

Opened in 1996 by owner and operator Eirik Nilsen, Holmen Husky Lodge provides an array of exciting dogsled adventures for their guests, magical overnight stays and great local food.

Around the lodge you will find an old renovated barn, which now is used as the restaurant for the lodge. Here you will also find a warm and cozy lounge where you can relax after a long day in the cold Arctic weather. Beside the barn you will find a new bathhouse with showers and toilets as well as a small lounge. The lodge has an outdoor Jacuzzi available for guests, as well as a big sauna. Against the forest side, the lodge has placed eight two-person tipi bungalows, as well as a larger group/family tipi bungalow.

Tipi Bungalow

  • Sleeps: 1 - 2
  • Bath: shared
  • Rooms: 1
  • Units Available: 8

When it’s time for bed, you’ll head to your tent/bungalow; but this is no camping tent! The Sami Lavvo`s are insulated against the winter’s cold and come with a double bed (with duvets and heated blankets just in case) and a wood-burning stove at one edge of the tent so you can watch the crackling fire as you curl up in bed. One section of the lavvo has been replaced with a floor-to-top window. On clear nights, you can watch the stars travel past overhead, and if you’re lucky, you might get a glimpse of the local light show, the northern lights!
