A unique opportunity to experience nature at its most beautiful, all alone in the wild yet in full luxury
We kept getting asked if we had any recommendations for a special type of accommodation while visiting the Lillehammer/Sjusjøen area for dog sledding, and now we finally do! From the winter of 2017 we have been able to welcome guests to our incredible Arctic Dome, a luxurious tent-like creation, based on the famous iglo shape in order to see both the star-filled sky and the northern lights. Built by a local company in the Lillehammer area!
Over the summer/autumn it will be located in the beautiful Åstdalen that you can see in the video above, a true summer paradise. Just 15 minutes away from Sjusjøen, right next to the stagnant river of Åsta, perfect for canoeing, fishing, swimming and amazing hikes. Free use of two canoes with lifejackets is also included with your stay.
GlaMPING In idyllic ÅSTDALEN
Experience absolute silence and relaxation as deep into the Norwegian nature you can get. Soft beds, comfortable chairs, all the equipment you may need, and room for your whole family or group of friends. You get to enjoy the nature while still leaving in absolute luxury. There is a little road leading into where the dome is placed, road description will be given beforehand. Drinking water is provided as well as outdoor cooking facilities and a proper bed. You will only need to bring your own bed sheets and food. Canoes at your disposal are included.
Canoing In ponds and river ÅSTA
The Arctic Dome is located just at the opposite side of the river where the road goes. If you are interested in just renting canoes without staying over, there is also two canoes located just by the road with much more accessible. Look for the little boathouse on the image with the two trees, where the canoes are located, about 4 km south from Øvre Åstbru. If you are staying in the dome and would like access to more canoes, you are able to use these ones as well.
Get in touch with Ida on firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in renting the canoes, and you will get the code to open the keypad! Price is NOK 300,- per day, per canoe.
Åsta is also wonderful for fishing, ask for fishing licenses at the barrier by Øvre Åstbru!
Equipment and BOOKING
The dome is equipped with a bed for two, as well as foldable double mattresses, so in total room for 10 people sleeping over. Duvets and pillows are included for 6 people, but bring duvet and pillow covers, along with bed sheets yourself.
A firecamp pan, charcoal, lighter fluid, coffee pot, coffee/tea and drinking water is included and will be there as you arrive. A toilet is located on the outside with a washpot, soap and some anti bacterial napkins!
