Welcome to Svenborg! We live in the forest at the foot of the mountains. Only 30 minutes drive from Bardufoss and very close to the Målselva river.

Log house

It has an area of 120 m² and can accommodate 7 beds (up to 10 people). There are 2 bedrooms, a mezzanine, a fully equipped kitchen and a large bathroom. Built and furnished by us, the house has a unique atmosphere and lots of details about local life, reindeer herding and Arctic adventures. Parking is available right by the stairs and the bedrooms have a beautiful view of the forest. Excellent wireless internet access.

Other buildings are the farmhouse where we live, the barn where we store equipment, and the dog walker's cabin. In addition we have a sauna, a Sami tent and a cabin 5 km up the mountain.

Program 

Overview 

More time, more nature, more practice, deep inner exploration, beautiful hikes, exciting excursions, more relaxation, more joy! Be a part of it and create unforgettable memories in an extraordinary place with us!

The hike and Yoga retreat will be an adventurous week both through nature and inside us. Daily yoga practice will make us both physically and mentally stronger and calmer. But don't worry, you won't be bored. Every day after the yoga practice, we will go on a hike to the pure nature that surrounds our farm - you will be able to choose either an easy or a challenging version. Afterwards, we have plenty of options on how to spend a relaxing evening on the farm - relaxing in the sauna, sitting by the fire or cooking together with local ingredients. In addition, during the week we have several special excursions such as canoeing, sleeping in our mountain hut or a day trip to stunning island of Senja. of course all activities will be optional and if you prefer to have some calm me time you can always stay at our cozy husky farm !

Yoga Instructor - Suzanne Borovcova 

Yoga has been a part of me since I was a little girl, thanks to my parents. After 12 years of competition in gymnastics, I gained experience in yoga while traveling around the world, especially in India, the cradle of yoga. There I attended my training to become a certificated yoga teacher of ashtanga vinyasa yoga. I am currently traveling full time, and because I love to combine movement, people and interesting spaces, I am organising classes and retreats along my journey - right now Norway - with amazing nature which we will discover through hiking!

Food

Summer is the richest season for local vegetables and fruit in northern Norway. The local blueberries and arctic berries in particular make great breakfast smoothies and dessert cakes.

Otherwise, we try to cook mainly with local ingredients (as much as possible because we are, after all, located above the Arctic Circle) so that every day is also a culinary experience.
