Let Us Introduce Ourselves
Olav is a retired aeronautical engineer, licensed aircraft mechanic and bush pilot who worked in the arctic for more than thirty-five years and has flown tourists to the North Pole four times! In his early twenties Olav immigrated to Canada from his homeland in Norway after attending a private college in Great Britain. As a young boy his favorite hobby was building model airplanes and later models which he could fly, often crashing them and then patiently putting them back together. Winning competitions now and then made it all worthwhile. By the time he was 15 he was an honest to goodness pilot flying gliders and learning how to build real airplanes which he still enjoys doing in his spare time. Olav is no longer flying commercially but he still does enjoy flying with Judi in his spare time.
Judi is an American who was born in Switzerland where she spent the first six years of her life. The following eight years were spent growing up with her missionary family in Montevideo, Uruguay where she spent lots of time riding horses on the beach and playing with her dog. The countless hours spent training her Boxer to do tricks and teaching him to be obedient prepared her for something that was beyond her wildest dreams; training her own huskies in the Arctic for dogsledding adventures.
We can truly say that we love life, enjoy what we do and feel that it is a privilege to be able to live right here in the beautiful Canadian Arctic. Please allow us to be your hosts during your brief stay.

A Cozy Bedroom
In each kitchenette we provide coffee makers with coffee and also an assortment of teas, hot chocolate and juice. Our breakfast is simple and you prepare it yourself whenever you are ready to wake up in the morning. We stock the cupboards with foods that keep well such as cereals, regular powdered milk & soy milk, rye crisp, margarine and jam, canned fruit & oriental noodles. Nothing fancy. Just plain and simple. Sorry, we do not have a dining room available to guests.
We also have a really special cabin that is very private, spacious and a little more deluxe than our regular cabin units. In addition to private bath this cabin has a double shower, a queen bed and a full kitchen as well as an outdoor porch with a propane barbecue. We call this one our “TWILIGHT CABIN” or honeymoon suite.
