Reindeer herding is still a major source of livelihood for some tribes. The days were long, the work hard and the drinks would flow as they told tales by the light of the fire. Herder’s huts, whilst still popular in the Arctic, are virtually unheard of in the UK, making this a unique and memorable place to enjoy a taste of the outdoors.
Based on the Sami Reindeer Herder’s Hut, this quirky cabin is full of character and very cosy. Once inside it’s hard to remember you’re not in Lapland! The design incorporates an internal fire and barbecue for cooking and keeping warm in those Arctic nights. One bag of fuel is provided for your stay, further bags are chargeable.
The hut can sleep four and, as well as bedding, we like to think we’ve got most things covered. From cutlery, to water, to coolbox including milk and even a camping toilet if you’re caught short in the night. It’s hard to remember you’re on a campsite with showers, a bar and people within reach. Guests can now take advantage of the newly refurbished gym or relax in the sauna for an additional £10 per person.
The hut can also seat fifteen and is the perfect way to entertain family and friends in a way the weather can’t spoil, in fact the colder outside the better it feels inside. The hut can be hired for the evening and we also offer fondue party packages. We supply all the fuel, lights and cooking utensils – you supply the guests and the drink!
