Welcome to Holmen Husky Lodge in Alta, Norway.

Alta, the City of the Northern Lights, is nestled at the end of Altafjord, far up in the north of Norway. Just outside this arctic town, you’ll find Holmen Husky Lodge.

Opened in 1996, the main building converted from an old barn, Holmen Husky Lodge provides an array of exciting adventures, unique overnight stays and great local food to their their guests.

Unique overnight stay

Come join us for a magical overnight stay here at our lodge. It’s the perfect blend of luxury and wilderness adventure!

Our lavvos are insulated against the winter’s cold, and come with a double bed (with comforters and heated blankets just in case), and a wood-burning stove at one edge of the tent so you can watch the crackling fire as you curl up in bed. One section of the lavvo has been replaced with a floor-to-top window. On clear winter nights, you can watch the stars travel past overhead, and if you’re lucky you might get a glimpse of our local light show, the Northern Lights!

In total we have place for 24 overnight guests at our lodge divided over eight, 2-person Tipi bungalows and one, 6-8 person Family/Group Tipi bungalow.
