The lodge is located ca. 20 kilometers south of Kirkenes in Northern Norway. Idyllic location in the wilderness, with the Taiga Forrest.
Namdalen is only 3 hours away from Oslo. 3 flights per day from Oslo to Kirkenes. (2hours), From Kirkenes airport ca 15 minutes by car, and then 4 kilometers by boat to reach the lodge. (In winter we swap the boatride for snowmobiles or huskies.)
Why not combine a trip on Hurtigruten, with a visit to Namdalen Wilderness Lodge. One of the Hurtigruten ships arrives in Kirkenes every day.
In winter we arrive here by snowmobile or husky-sled. (15th of December – 1st of May). Our Lodge is right next to public snowmobile-tracks.
In summer we arrive the lodge by boat (4km) or on foot, a short but nice hiking trip of 2,5 kilometer. This is a great place to experience midnight sun in summer and Northern lights in winter.
A few kilometers west of Namdalen Wilderness lodge is Finland, and a few kilometers east lies Russia. Next to our lodge is “Langfjordvannet” a freshwater lake, this lake is 8 km long and here you can catch 10 different species of fish.
It is safe to say that Namdalen is located in the wilderness with few traces of civilization around. Here you can leave all stress behind and enjoy the peace and calmness of nature. There are no roads or traffic through our area. Although once a year in March Finnmarksløpet Europe’s longest Husky race passes our lodge around 200 meters from us. Also the “Pasvik trail” a shorter Husky race goes by on the same track.
