Bjørnfjell Mountain Lodge

The Heart Of The Arctic

Situated in the heart of the arctic, the mountain lodge exhibits a deep-rooted connection to Norwegian farming and cabin culture. On average, Norwegians spend 60 days a year in cabins. This is a part of their cultural heritage. In earlier times the farmers brought their livestock into the mountains on pasture during the summer, and while herding the cows and sheep they lived in small cabins. At the mountain lodge they lived by the food they made, the berries they gathered, and whatever the nature offered them. At Bjørnfjell Mountain Lodge we want to give you the opportunity to take part in this Norwegian cabin culture. Stay comfortable inside our cozy cabins or in a room in the main lodge while enjoying the surrounding nature.

The Mountain Lodge

Nestled amongst mountains and open space, the area catches the spirit of skiers, hikers, Northern Lights enthusiasts, families, and more. The accommodation lies 379 km above the arctic circle, and 20 km away from Alta City Center, which makes it a stunning location to be engulfed by open nature and natural phenomenon.


The mountain lodge exudes a chic yet authentic charm that radiates serenity and comfort. Designed with natural wood accents, and a calming interior, our mountain accommodation is an oasis of Nordic elegance.
