Staying here will be one of the memories that stays with you for the rest of your life! I am so sad that -- against the adivice of the owner -- we stayed for only one night. You need a minimum of 2. The setting is beautiful. The cabins are unique and wonderful. You enter your cabin and feel that you are coming home. If you want to sit and read, there are swings on the porch. If children want to play in water, there is a rushing stream at the bottom of the hill. If you want to walk in the woods, there is a trail. If you want to watch the sled dogs fed - you're welcomed morning and/or evening and given the chance to hold a puppy (maybe a future winner of the Iditerod??). If you want to fly fish, talk to Sven. Sven and his wife are the most amazing people you will ever meet. The young people working here are friendly and very interesting to talk with; they come from all over Europe. If you don't cook for yourself in the cabin, you can share meals with the young people. You don't have many choices for eating at restaurants. The cabins are 6 m outside of Karasjok and you can visit the Sami Village there (you can eat here but this is expensive); or take a tour of the Sami parliament. Some of the cabins come with indoor plumbing, others require you to share facilities, so reserve early if this matters to you. The sled-dog adventures look absolutely amazing, but even if you don't go to Karasjok for that experience, make an effort to stay at Engholm's Husky Lodge.
