Our lodge is located in the heart of the Salangsdalen valley, at the end of a small street. The few neighbours are milk producing farmers. The village Setermoen and also the nearest supermarket are 35 km towards the North. However, despite the secluded location with the Bardufoss airport we are easy to reach! The airport is only a just an hour car ride away, which is a stone’s throw for Northern Norway. Towards the South, Narvik is 98 km away.
On our lodge we have a residential building; an operational building with a workshop, kitchen for the dog food and baths/toilers; a wood fired sauna near the river; our two cozy log cabins „Helge Ingstad Hütte“ and „Eivind Astrup Hütte”; and a Lavvo (Tipi).
THE EARLY YEARS
With a lot of support for our family and partners we have been able to setup our lodge over the past couple of years.
We officially moved to the Municipality of Bardu in 2008 with 8 huskies. A lot has happened since then! The kennel grew quickly and for many years we developed our dog sledding packages on a rented farm. In 2011, after searching for all this time, we found the perfect farm. Finally, we could dedicate ourselves 100% to our business!
We built the operational building with a workshop, dog food kitchen and bathing area in 2012, as well as our first cozy log cabin “Helge Ingstad”. In the following year we built the second cabin “Eivind Astrup”. Both cabins have been built with attention to every detail and lovingly decorated with an unique charm.
