Engholm Lodges

Engholm's Husky Lodges are situated next to the Karasjohka river, 6 km outside of Karasjok. The log houses 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. The wood heated sauna is cosy and it has separate room for relaxing and an outdoor hot tub, which is very popular.

The 'Barta' is a special turf-covered log house where we gather around the open fire, sitting on reindeer furs with local food and drinks. The Engholm Husky farm consists of 40-50 highly trained sled dogs for long-distance racing, expeditions and tours. Conditions are very good for fishing salmon and grayling in the Karasjok river (200m). Char, trout and pike are also found in the lakes nearby.
