The Huskyfarm Innset is located in the mountains between Norway and Sweden, 35 km from the next town Setermoen at lake Veslevatn. In former times the Huskyfarm had been a small sheep farm. During the last 20 years all the farm building have been thoroughly restored.
The oldest building is our cabin which we use as holiday home. The core consists of an old log cabin. Rooms have been attached to 68 qm in total and now there is room for six people in living room, bed room, kitchen and bathroom with sauna – an ideal holiday home for families.
The sauna that is attached to the bathroom is used by all the guests of the Huskyfarm.
The biggest building of the Huskyfarm is our guest house with 150 qm. It is also one of the two new houses of the farm.
The ground floor gives room for our work shop and store rooms for dog sleds, skis,pulkas and all kinds of equipment.
The attic is designed to accommodate the guests that participate in one of our longer dog sledding trips as long as they still stay on the Huskyfarm. There are four rooms with four beds each, a combined lounge/kitchen (42 qm), two WC, a shower and a washing machine. The kitchen is fully equipped. The centre of the lounge is a cast iron wood stove. This kind of accommodation is typical for the Norwegian mountain cabins and is quite similar to the cabins we use on our dog sledding trips.
On the opposite east side of the Huskyfarm property is our bakery with a huge wood-fired stone oven which was build in 2008.
The fourth building is our private house.
Opposite our house are the nine kennels with different packs of puppies and young dogs being “educated” by older alpha dogs. Here in the kennels the dogs are learning about the social behaviour within a husky pack. As pack behaviour is very important for huskies this is a necessary part of their growing up although it some times means quite a lot of stress. The hierachy is strict and the process of learning about it is sometimes painful for the youngsters. Mobbing or other antisocial behaviour is not unusual. Older alpha dogs or lower ranking dogs are therefore glad that they have their very own little huts outside from the kennel where they can rest in between the dog sledding tours.
