A night with a 100 dogs?

This is a trapper´s home, and where our 100 Alaskan huskies live. You will see and learn how it was to be a trapper in the old days, and you can spend the night in our wooden Teepee hut.

Decades ago trappers came north with dreams of freedom and the big catch. Soon they would have to cope with the dangers and isolation of the arctic in the quest for their dreams.

We will serve a meal that will take you back to the trapper´s daily lives, and to times of celebration when they would prepare a real feast.

At the bonfire, we will tell stories about how the trappers made a living from winter hunting. The you spend the night in a Teepee, with a 100 huskies watching over you. The next day you are are ready for dog sledding.

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.

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.

Escape the town lights and busy life and join us for a unique Trapper’s Dinner at Trapper’s Station.
