Engholm Husky (Lodge)

A "DIFFERENT PLACE Engholm's Husky design Lodge is situated next to Karasjohka River, 6 km outside of Karasjok. The designed log houses here at the lodge were built by Sven himself and have a special charm. Sven has made all the interior furnishing and decoration in order to create a unique and personal atmosphere in each house. Interesting "dog musher library". The wood heated sauna is cosy, it has separate room for relaxing and our outdoor hot tub is very popular. The ‘Barta’ – a special turf covered log house where we gather around the open fire sitting on reindeer furs with special food and good drinks. We are licensed for food and beverage. – and the ‘Barta' is frequently used for a "different" social events. Our farm consists of 40-50 highly trained sled dogs for long-distance racing and tours. Conditions are very good for fishing salmon, and grayling in Karasjok River (200m). Char trout and pike in the lakes nearby.

We join the native reindeer herders - the Sámi - in their annually reindeer herd migration to the Arctic coast. The tour is unique and this opportunity is a rare privilege, provided by sami reindeer herders. The tour starts from the inland, the heart of the Sámi culture, and heads north towards the arctic coast where the reindeers have their summer grazing and calving areas. You will be taking part in the daily work and learn how they drive their reindeer herd, escorting them from their winter grounds to the summer area. Taking part in the reindeer migration means traveling, eating and sleeping like a Sámi reindeer herder. Your direct participation means that you will be living close to the reindeer, assisting when necessary in herding them over the desolate Finnmark plateau by snow machine. We will be sleeping around an open fire in a Lavvu (sami tent) and be served traditional sámi food. In the middle of April there are daylight almost 24 hours, the snow is starting to melt and it is good time for ice-fishing. Some great ice fishing can be done in the numerous lakes we pass by. Accommodation the night before and the nights after the tour is on Engholm Husky Lodge.
