We from the Huskyfarm Innset
If we only would introduce the people who will greet you when you visit the Huskyfarm, it will quickly give the impression that only these people have made their contribution to the establishment of the Huskyfarm. This is fundamentally wrong. Actually, far more than 100 people should be mentioned here. All these people have contributed to the establishment and operation of the Huskyfarm.
This does not only include the life partners, who invested energy in the Huskyfarm for many years, and not only Peter Bickel, who contributed significantly to the design of the Huskyfarm’s web presence as our webmaster for more than two decades.
This also includes all other, mostly young people, who prepared our dogs for the touring season with a brilliant training over several months in autumn each year. And that, day in and day out, in often bad, late autumn weather.
They who helped us build the buildings in the snow-free period, who hauled and split firewood from the forest, who spliced ropes and sewed harnesses.
And of course, the many guests, who could not always leave it alone to simply spend their vacations here, but painted the facades with a paintbrush in their hands and took great care of the dogs. All together have ensured until today, that the Huskyfarm as a family business can exist.

…grew up on one of Norway’s first organic farms on the southwest coast.
She moved to Oslo to study bioengineering and after graduation worked at the university hospital there.
In terms of sports, she is versatile: from dancing to triathlon to being a certified climbing instructor.
In Oslo she met Morten. From then on, the two of them spent a lot of time together in nature summer- and wintertime.
These weekend trips and vacations together and then a warm summer day up at the Huskyfarm in Northern Norway in 2018 led to the decision to move to Morten’s old home.
Both want nothing more than to be close to nature and share that closeness with others.
In the summer of 2020, a new chapter began at Huskyfarm Innset.

…grew up on the Huskyfarm Innset with dog sledding and the “Friluftsliv”. At the age of 19 he started studying his MScs in economics in Oslo and worked in the administration of the mountain sports outfitter Norrøna, among others.
In all those years he was very active in sports, be it on marathons or the 24-hour cross-country race Marka24. As befits a Norwegian, he also goes hunting. On our Spitsbergen expedition in 2015, which lasted several months, he was among others with Björn on Nordaustlandet.
But 13 years in Oslo were enough: With his partner Anne Margarete and their sailboat, the two set sail in May 2020. Destination: northern Norway.
Both then began their further life on the Huskyfarm in Innset.

…grew up on the outskirts of Hamburg, Germany and discovered the “outdoor’‘-life at an early age. It was no wonder that especially the northern Scandinavian nature did not let him go.
After his twelve-month hike, which took him over 3,500 kilometers from Oslo to the Soviet border near Kirkenes, he finally found his way to northern Norway.
More than 30 years ago he started to build up the Huskyfarm.
He earns his living by writing and photographing, as a hiking guide and as a musher. He lives together with his partner Katrin, his son Morten and his partner Anne Margarete and the meanwhile above 80 sled dogs on the Huskyfarm Innset.

… grew up near Munich, Germany and stopped by the Husky farm in 2018 on his 6500 km hike from Tarifa, the southernmost point of Europe, to the North Cape.
After three successful seasons on our husky farm, during which Alex actively supported us in dog training as well as in looking after guests, including day tours, an exciting year on Spitsbergen followed. There he completed a one-year study to become an Arctic Nature Guide, in which he was able to deepen his previous knowledge and skills.
Since the summer of 2023, he has been a permanent member of our team, guiding his own multi-day tours and continuing to share responsibility for the family holidays.
He shares his experiences on his YouTube channel “Wanderbursche”.

… grew up in Vardo, a small fishing town on Norway’s most remote northern shore. Vardo is Scandinavia’s only town that is located in the arctic climate zone. Ane’s youth was all about living in nature with Husky dogs. At 17 she had her first team of dogs and thus her own mode of transport during the winter – the longest season of the year. The dog sledge became her way to get to school and to work and made a driver’s license or a car unnecessary. At Hedmark University she studied Nature and Wilderness Management. She is a graduated agronomist and visited a full-year course of dog mushing at Malangen College. Countless fishing trips in the Barent Sea together with her father are an essential part of her youth. The northern territories of Scandinavia she explored during many hiking and skiing trips. During her work in Villmarkssenter Tromso she met her parnter Jan and ever since the two share their love for nature and Husky dogs.

…… grew up in the south of Germany. He has always felt drawn to the northern countries and untouched nature. On many occasions, by foot as well as by canoe and kayak, he explored the north of Scandinavia. But before fully succumbing to his ”longing for the north” he decided to sign up for an apprenticeship to become a chef. After three years of work in the Michelin-Star crowned gourmet restaurant, Facil, in Berlin, he decided to leave Gemany and move to Norway. The Huskyfarm, Innset, offered him employment as a dog trainer. He also worked to improve of the management style of the Innset kitchen. It seems as if Innset was, at that time, not sufficiently far north. The isolated territory of Svalbart/Spitzbergen attracted him and kept him for an entire cycle of seasons. Afterwards, Jan received an offer to work as a guide in Villmarkssenter Tromso. This is where he met his partner Ane and after working in Villmarkssenter for two seasons, Ane and Jan decide to start their own Husky farm near us.
