Located in a beautiful setting close to the shores of Lake Inari and surrounded by pristine wilderness, the untouched landscapes are just waiting to be explored. From Wilderness Hotel Nellim you can do just that, whether by snowmobile, husky drawn sled or under your own steam on a snowshoe safari and on this 4 night winter experience you have the chance to do all 3!! Enthusiastic and experienced guides with an outstanding knowledge of Lappish culture will ensure you make the most of the daily activities lined up for you.
During your stay you will also have chance to venture out after dark to seek the spectacular aurora borealis. On one evening you will take a trip out to a wilderness cabin for a few key hours where uninterupted vistas of the northern night skies await you and a 2nd outing offers the opportunity to snowmobile at night in search of the northern lights. If natures' 'light show in the sky' puts on a performance, then this is surely one of the best places to experience this amazing natural phenomenon. Due to its far north-eastern location in Finnish Lapland and around 275km above the Arctic Circle your chances of seeing this magical display are greatly increased.
To maximise your chances why not spend one of your nights in an Aurora Hut. These spacious yet cosy cabins offer fabulous views to the night sky through the glass ceiling offering the ultimate in aurora viewing.
At the end of each day, retire to the comfort and rustic charm of the lodge where a warm Sami welcome awaits.
