Arrival to Ivalo Airport and transfer to Wilderness Hotel Nangu (approx. 30 min). Upon arrival you’ll enjoy a welcoming dinner and settle into your accommodation.
Days 2-6. Arctic activities
Snowmobiling is the best way to truly explore the wilderness. After a snowmobiling lesson and safety instructions, we will head off on a snowmobiling adventure that will take us through the untouched wilderness surrounding it. During the day, we will enjoy camp lunch by the open fire and warm drinks to keep us warm. Is there a better way to spend a winter day?
To kick off the day, you will be transferred to the husky farm.
On the Husky Safari, you will be taught how to handle the sled before heading out for a ride, the huskies pulling your sled through the beautiful winter scenery, passing through frozen Lake Inari. The dogs’ excitement is infectious and as the animals fall silent on the trail, you will realize that this is the only way to see Lapland.
Meet the Reindeer
You will have a chnace to meet the reindeer herder and his reindeer. This will give you an insight to the way of life in the North. The reindeer will welcome you and you will be invited to the reindeer enclosure. The guide will tell you more about the Sámi culture and the life of a reindeer. You will get the chance to feed the reindeer – the curious animals might even come up and eat out of your hand!
Ice Fishing Trip with Snowmobile Sleigh
Hop on a snowmobile sleigh and head out for a calming day trip full of ice fishing and magnificent sceneries. We will take you to the best spots for catching some fish, camp there and test our luck. During the day, we will enjoy warm drinks and have lunch by the open fire – if we’re lucky, it will be fresh fish we caught ourselves! If you wish to take a day to relax like the locals do, this is the way to do it!
On this activity we will be exploring the varied terrains around Wilderness Hotel Nangu on foot: from the frozen surface of Lake Inari to the enchanting forest and hills rising from the shoreline. We will trek through this winter wonderland enjoying the silence. During the trip, the guide will share interesting stories and information about Finnish nature and animals. On the way, we will stop to enjoy lunch and warm drinks by the open fire. This trip is perfect for photographers and nature lovers, as snowshoeing is a true eco-activity!
Cross Country Skiing
Learn this traditional Finnish winter sport on a relaxing skiing trip on Lake Inari. We will get to know the skis, how to cope with them and learn some useful techniques. This skiing tryout is all about learning something new: once you get the hang of it, it will be the nicest sport you have ever done. Don’t be afraid to fall over, as the soft snow will help you land safely. We will be skiing over the frozen Lake Inari, admiring the beautiful scenery with no hurry, stopping to take pictures and enjoy warm drinks on the way.
This activity takes you Aurora hunting on the amazing Lake Inari. You will be comfortably seated in a sleigh pulled by the guide’s snowmobile. This way you can enjoy the northern sky all the way to the camp place. While observing the night sky, we will enjoy the blazing campfire with hot drinks and each other’s company. The atmosphere by the campfire is an experience in itself. Lake Inari is one of the best places in the world for Aurora viewing, as our Aurora Camps are located far away from any artificial lights. With a bit of luck, we might get to enjoy this unique light phenomenon.
On this snowmobiling tour, you will head to Lake Inari in search of the Northern Lights, looking for the best spots to view the open night sky. Driving distance depends on the weather conditions – if the sky looks promising, we will make more stops to admire the Northern Lights that will hopefully appear for us.
