At Holmen Husky Lodge, we want you to feel close to nature and none of our accommodations get you closer than our Tipi Bungalows. Here you can watch the wonders of nature from the comforts of a soft and warm double bed. Large windows, reaching from the floor to the ceiling, almost make you feel like you are sleeping outdoors. There is no better place to watch the Midnight Sun or Northern Lights.
The design is steeped in history, from the Sami lavvos to the tipis of the Native American tribes. These indigenous peoples dressed branches in animal skin and shaped a structure ideal for sleeping and keeping warm around a fire. Our tipis are made from wood, with a wood burning stove that keeps you warm even on the coldest nights.
Toilet and shower facilities:
There are no shower or toilet facilities in the Tipi itself. At Holmen Husky Lodge we want our guests to experience a life closer to nature. Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean you have to do your business in the forest. We have modern toilet and shower facilities, but you have to walk a couple of meters to get to them. The same goes for eating or relaxing at our main lodge.
We want our guests to experience a different life, where everything is not just readily available. Nature feels much closer if you have to step into fresh air whenever you have to eat, shower or use the toilet. Don’t fight it; embrace it. When will you ever experience something like this again?

Staying in the Holmen Husky Lodge was by far the best hotel experience I’ve had in years! The staff is super helpful and friendly, they gave us great tips for restaurants and things to do in Alta. The tipis are an unique experience too, from the tipis we were able to see the northern lights ❤️We unfortunately did not have any snow to go dog sledding, i guess i will have to come back and have another amazing time at the Holmen Husky Lodge 😆
There's not much I can write here that's not already honed in on by other reviews, but this place is just incredible.The staff are friendly, the dogs of course are all very cute and the huts in which you stay are a great experience. Complete with a furnace and a view of the northern lights there's not much more you could hope for in a getaway. We were fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of the dancing lights on our first night unintentionally, and they were nothing short of spectacular.I would highly recommend Holmes Husky as a getaway for a few nights. Try some of their teas and don't forget to wrap up for when your log fire goes out in the morning!
“The one night we spent in a Sami tent, was the best night we had in the whole of our trip to Norway cruising the length of the coastline. Lovely and toasty warm both in the tent and from the staff. Northern Lights and countless stars - what more you ask for! We also did a husky dog sled with you which too was the tops! There is nothing better!!!”
