the modern Home of arctic Trappers

Trapper’s Station – home to the Arctic trappers and their 90 Alaskan huskies. Raring to take you for a ride through the wild Arctic scenery.

The loud barking of the huskies is the first thing you’ll notice as you approach the Trapper’s Station. Despite the noise they make, the dogs are friendly and eager to take you for a sled ride. Decades ago trappers came north with dreams of freedom and the big catches to be found in the vast wilderness. Soon they would have to cope with the dangers and isolation of the Arctic in the quest for their dreams.

Besides dog sledding, at Trapper’s Station you’ll experience how it was to be a trapper. Listen to the great stories about making a living from winter hunting. We will serve a meal that will take you back to the trappers’ daily lives, and to times of celebration when they would prepare a real feast!

Reindeer skins, warm sleeping bags, fire in the oven and howling dogs outside – this is the true Trapper’s Station just like the old days. Trapper’s Station offers unique possibilities for accommodation and dining.  Welcome to our Gamma, wooden teepee type hut, for a real trapper’s dinner or an expedition style sleepover. The station is also home to for 90 Alaskan huskies, so you can expect some barking once and awhile. Trapper’s Station also have a secondary station, for our staff to sleep in. Many of the trappers back in the old days had several secondary stations that were a couple of days’ walk from their main station, using them when on hunting trips to seek shelter from the harsh weather.

GAMMA - WOODEN TEEPEE

Welcome to our Wooden teepee type hut, the Gamma. Here you will sleep on reindeer skins and in sleeping bags around an open fire. There is no running water or showers at the station, but the outdoor toilet is heated for your comfort. With a very weak mobile signal you really feel like you are out in the wilderness, even though you are only 15 minutes’ drive from the city. Remember that the station houses our 90 Alaskan huskies, so you can expect some barking during the night. All prices include transportation to the station, guide for polar bear guard and breakfast at the station. Trapper’s Dinner at the station can be booked for additional cost.

The dogs in the summer need just as much love, attention and exercise as in the winter and we are happy to offer summer dog sledding. Instead of being dragged in the traditional way behind a wooden sled, here at Basecamp we have constructed wagons that enable an equally enjoyable and exciting experience.
