Situated at the end of the road, in the heart of Norwegian Lapland, the Ongajoksetra hotel is a truly spectacular wilderness lodge. With across nine buildings designed in the style of traditional Norwegian mountain farms, the 16 guest rooms are pleasantly decorated and many feature a loft space. Nearby Alta, the largest town in the Finnmark region of the Norwegian north, is home to 6,000 year-old UNESCO-protected cave paintings. Exciting activities, including horse riding, ice fishing and cross-country mountain biking can be arranged at the hotel throughout the year.

Eat

The menu at Ongajoksetra’s mountain lodge restaurant features game and fish which has been present in the area’s unique cuisine since ancient times. Reindeer, elk, hare, grouse, salmon, trout, Arctic char and halibut all make an appearance on the menu. There’s also an abundance of locally foraged ingredients, such as mushrooms and berries picked in the Alta area. The emphasis on locally sourced, home-cooked cuisine spreads to the sweet treats – delicious cakes, breads, jams and desserts are worth getting out of bed for.

Sleep

This homely feel is continued with the décor of the rooms, with individual furnishings and pretty art works decorating each one. Superior rooms have en suites with showers

Do

A whole host of activities are on offer. In winter and spring, guests can enjoy Northern Lights safaris, dog sledding tours, snowmobile safaris and ice fishing, whilst summer and autumn brings fly fishing, cross-country cycling and river boat safaris. Return to the hotel for a warming sauna, and watch the Northern Lights or the continuous wave of the midnight sun from the hotel’s outdoor wooden hot tub.
