    Hei!
    Thank you for your interest to be part of our team and our life.

    Our lodge is located 6km west of Karasjok Sami village by the Karasjohka river. Our neighboring villages - Lakselv 86km, Kautokeino 130km, Tana 200km, Alta 200km – and between them only open landscape with some mountain cabins, a few Sami settlements - else inhabited by reindeer, moose, bear, arctic fox, eagle, lynx, wolverine, and many other animals.

    Our team provides active holidays, mostly overnight tours and expeditions with sled dogs, for guests from all over the world. Our participants on tour are rather adventurous people who relish the chance to learn new skills and like to live life to the fullest.

    At the lodge we accommodate our guests in design log cabins, 8 cabins in total, built by and furnished by Sven himself, a truly unique atmosphere. Our mini restaurant seats 10 guests, serves local foods from the region. We pride ourselves to fish, hunt, gather and garden as much as we can. Processing and cooking has a high priority.

    The business has existed since 1979.

    Sven is 11 time winner of Europe's longest sled dog race, the "Finnmarksløpet" - 1000 km. He is a top ten finisher in Iditarod - a 1800 km race in Alaska. He is an experienced outdoor guide and has also lead several expeditions to Spitsbergen, Greenland and across Siberia. Thanks to his university studies in natural geography, it is a pleasure for him to explain the many geographical and natural phenomena's while leading a tour.

    "The desire to do something meaningful in life brought me to Karasjok. I had a longing within me for untouched nature. Based upon my own feelings for the area - the exotic light, the darkness and the great plateau - I developed a product which is bearing fruit. I built up to what we have today which has, with the years, become the success I had hoped for when I started 1979. ”Once infected with the sled dog mushing virus, there is no cure, there is only trail!”

    Our team consists of 4 - 5 two legged and 40 - 50 highly trained sled dogs for long-distance racing and tours, plus 1 - 2 litters with puppies in early education.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We ask that you visit for at least 2 month - preferably three or more. This is important for us because it gives you a chance to get to know all of us (both 2 and 4 legged) and get into our way of living. It also allows you to settle in properly and learn new skills.

    To be a part of the team will give you many memories that will last for long time! For sure the practice will be meaningful, interesting and fit for use and hopefully make your dream come true. If you always do what you always did, You´ll always get what you always got....
