  • Description


    We are a sled-dog kennel located 15 minutes outside the city Alta in Northern Norway.

    -Our Husky Lodge is growing fast, along with the size of our dog yard. From 20 dogs in 1990 to the almost 100 huskies that call Holmen Husky home today. Through the years we are proud to say that we have kept building on the passions that started it all. From our dog sledding trips to our accommodation, we do everything we can to let our guest have an experience of a lifetime!

    We have overnight stay at our lodge for up to 26 people in 2-person Tipi-bungalows, cabins and an Arctic Dome.

    At holmen you will help out in our "barn" serving dinner and breakfast to our guests, cleaning rooms, prepare food, feed the dogs, dog training, guide-work in general.
    Everything from fixing a fence to take on a booking is what we do here, and we love it!

    Our work is very flexible.
    We have our guest in focus, and all the work we put down is to make sure that our visitors gets an experience of a lifetime. With dogs and nature, but most important with the hospitality from our staff.

    The main areas for work will be in the Lodge, reception, kitchen, cat hotel and dog yard, as well as everywhere needed. We look for people with multiple skills, as well as positive attitude to different type work, all together as one team.

    You need to see it, take it, fix it, do it, lift it, make it, clean it, get it.

    Look forward to meet you.
