At the Huskyfarm
Bei uns gibt es nicht nur jeden Menge zu sehen, sondern auch jede Menge zu tun: die Hunde At our farm there is not only a lot to see, but also a lot to do: the dogs need daily food, clean water and cleaned places. In addition, the dogs and especially the puppies are happy about many cuddles, as you can see in the small video.
The pigs and chickens are always hungry as well. The latter also usually thank you quite properly for it – The eggs have to be collected and taken to the kitchen.
If you want to be active in handcrafting, our workshop offers wood and tools to build or repair doghouses and more…
If you have booked the Huskyfarm- or Family Vacation with us, then we can go on a hiking tour during the two activity days. Our local mountains right outside the front door offer an incredible panorama after a sporty climb. And if you take puppies or an adult dog on a hike, the kids will quickly forget that hiking can also be exhausting.
We are also happy to carry out hikes with overnight stays in tents or huts. Especially the tent makes incredibly flexible and expands the hiking horizon considerably.
We have prepared a few hiking suggestions that they can undertake independently or with guide.
Very close to the Huskyfarm there are some rock walls where it is good to climb. Children also enjoy this challenge, because here they solve problems on the wall themselves, communicate with the instructor and develop trust in the person who belays the climber.
Our instructor will find the appropriate climbing level for beginners and advanced climbers of all ages.
If you have booked the Huskyfarm or Family Vacation, we can climb on a rock wall in the canyon during the two activity days.
Climbing harnesses, ropes and other equipment are always ready for you on site.
If you have booked a Huskyfarm- or Family Vacation with us, we can arrange a canoe trip on our lake in front of the house during the two activity days. Steering a canoe is learned quite quickly, but until it goes straight without many serpentines, it takes some time.
We can also organize the canoe tour as an overnight trip with a tent or hammocks.
This offer can also be booked separately. You can find the prices in our price list.
We also have worked out some tour suggestions that you can do independently or with a guide.
Several tours by bicycle on the road can be made from the Huskyfarm. The most beautiful one leads to Sørdalen, framed by steep mountain walls. If you ride this route all the way, you will have covered 31 kilometers.
With mountain bikes there are several routes, some of which go above the tree line.
Bicycles can be rented at the farm.
Mushrooms and berries
In the late summer and autumn, it is time to harvest. First the mulberries ripen, then the blueberries and finally, in September, the cranberries.
The mushrooms shoot out of the ground from August. We say: the harvest of berries can vary enormously, but there are always enough mushrooms!
The berries can be preserved or used in delicious cake recipes.
The mushrooms are best dried over the stove or boiled down.
We can show you the best places for the berries and mushrooms!
Husky training begins in early September when the daytime temperatures start to drop. As long there is no snow, a four-wheeled cart serves as a substitute for a sled.
As soon as the dogs see the pulling harnesses in our hands and we pull the wagons into the starting position, a heath spectacle is created among the dogs: all of a sudden they wake up from their summer sleep and are very excited to get going again!
Activities further away
An hour’s drive away, you find the Polar Park where you can see all the native predators such as wolf, wolverine, bear, etc. in very large, fenced forest areas. More information here
IIn Bardufoss there is the Polarbad with saunas and a fun pool. More information here
In summer you can watch whale on the coast in front of Andenes. You can get there via the absolutely worth seeing island Senja. A car ferry from Gryllefjord takes you to Andenes. Two days should be calculated for this trip. More info here.
Four days should be calculated if you want to visit Lofoten by car. This is worthwhile in any case.
