Nangu Wilderness Lodge

Northern Lights Break at Wilderness Hotel Nangu

The vast frozen expanse of Lake Inari in Northern Finland sets an impressive scene for a romantic winter holiday to search for the Northern Lights and take part in thrilling activities. The scene is set on the lake’s southern shore, where Wilderness Hotel Nangu enjoys a prime location in anticipation of the Aurora Borealis and with uninterrupted views of Finland’s snowy wilderness beyond.

This luxurious boutique lodge is an adult-only resort, offering very comfortable accommodation in the different room types and a cozy open-plan lounge and restaurant area with a log fire to relax and marvel at the winter wonderland through the panoramic windows.

We are delighted to offer a 4 night holiday which includes return transfers, comfortable wilderness accommodation, all meals and several activities, or if you prefer, this break can be tailored to your personal requirements.

DAYS 2-4:

On our 4 night break the following activities are included during your stay. You will receive safety information and instructions on how to use any equipment by an English speaking guide.

Explore Snowmobiling
After an introductory lesson, you’ll join a snowmobile excursion taking you through the untouched wilderness on the snowy trails surrounding the hotel. Driving in pairs, stops are made on route allowing you to swap drivers, take photos and enjoy the winter scenes. A lunch stop is made to warm up with hot drinks and a snack before returning to the lodge.

Husky Safari and Meet the Reindeer
A short transfer takes you to the husky kennels where you’ll find a pack of excitable husky dogs waiting to take you out on a dog sledding adventure. You will be shown how to handle your own sled before heading out in pairs, one mushing the team and one as a passenger, each taking turns to drive the dog sled through the beautiful winter scenery. Enjoy the moment as the dogs fall silent once on the trail allowing for nature’s silence to take over.

DAYS 2-4:

Meet the Reindeer
You will get the chance to meet a reindeer herder and his reindeer, learning all about the Sámi culture and life of a herder in the Arctic region. You will be able to get close to these amazing animals, some may even feed out of your hand!

Gentle Snowshoeing
Clip on the snowshoes and head out on the crisp snow into the winter wilderness, enjoying a more relaxed way to experience the beautiful landscape. Along the way, the guide will share stories about Finnish nature and wildlife.

Aurora Snowmobiling
In the evening you will head out on a snowmobiling tour in search of the Northern Lights. After a safety briefing, you drive in pairs across the frozen Lake Inari looking for the best spots to view the open night sky, making stops to take photos and swap drivers along the way.

DAY 5:

After breakfast, you will be transferred back to Ivalo Airport for your flight home.

It is also possible to tailor-make your own personal trip. For example, why not upgrade to an Aurora Cabin on the first or last night of your trip for optimum aurora viewing potential.
