Engholm Husky Lodge
in Karasjok is "a different place".
This is where we have our base and this is where most of our adventures and activities depart from. At Engholm husky Lodge you will be staying in log cabins designed and built by Mr. Sven Engholm. The unique style of the lodge comes from using only natural materials plus creativity to create the comfortable, relaxed and natural atmospherere. Most cabins are equipped with a wood burner to provide environmentally friendly heating and these add to the cosy and homely atmosphere of each cabin.
The unique design is also found in the lodge kitchen. The small and intimate kitchen is designed to bring people together in a social setting. Here you will meet your trip mates and other lodge guests in a relaxed atmosphere that encourages you to share your stories.
The 40 to 50 highly trained sled dogs at Engholm Husky Lodge are friendly and social dogs. As a lodge guest you are welcome to visit the dog yard to meet these elite athletes and see how they are cared for every day.
