Full description

Wilderness Hotel Inari is another of the four creations of Mari and Jouko Lappalainen, owners of the popular resorts Nellim and Muotka Wilderness Hotels, both of which have been big hits with our guests for many years.

Set on the shores of Lake Inari this stylish resort offers a classic winter experience coupled with cosy accommodation and mouth-watering Lappish cuisine. The main lodge is home to the restaurant and bar with floor to ceiling windows with far reaching views, comfortable sitting areas in front of the warming log fire.

Immerse yourself in the wilderness and spend your day either mushing your own team of dogs, speeding  along the snowy trails on a snowmobile, feeding the reindeer, learning about the local Sami culture and traditions or just taking the time to enjoy the quietness of the  forest.

And of course evenings are filled with sky gazing and searching for the magical colours of the aurora.

Accommodation at Wilderness Hotel Inari is part of the experience and ranges from wilderness hotel rooms, to traditional log cabins to Aurora cabins with glass-fronted domes roofs for the ultimate aurora viewing whilst still keeping your toes warm!

Activity Information


Snowmobile try out (approx.2 hours) - This is perfect for those who have never tried snowmobiling before. First you are given full safety instructions and a lesson before heading out on a small journey into the nearby surroundings.

Snowmobile Safari (approx.4 hours) - The guide will show you how to handle the machines, and after a full safety briefing and driving lesson you head out to Lake Inari and its surroundings. Snowmobiling through white winter scenery is a breathtaking experience. During the day, there will be a chance to try ice fishing and lunch by the open fire.

Husky Safari (approx.3 hours) - Husky sledding is a must do experience when visiting Lapland. You will be taught how to drive the sled before heading out for the safari, where the huskies pull the sled through beautiful scenery. Enjoy the dog’s excitement at the start, and the serene silence once they get going. You have lunch before or after the activity, and the guide will also show you around the husky farm. Sleds are based on two people sharing, taking it in turns to drive.

Gentle Snowshoeing (approx.2 hours) - This trip is perfect for anyone who wishes to try snowshoes. With gentle snowshoeing you get light exercise, and a relaxed atmosphere from the nature and peaceful surrounds.

Cross Country Skiing (approx.2hours) - The traditional Finnish winter sport is definitely something you have to try on your trip. Cross country skiing used to be the most common method of transportation – there is no other method as quiet taking you through frozen and snowy scenery than on skis. The guide shows you how to use them, and once everyone is ready, you take a nice route in the surrounding nature.

Reindeer Farm visit (approx.2.5 hours) - Travel by car to the reindeer farm and learn about the life of a reindeer herder and the importance of reindeer to the local people. Meeting a local herder and his peaceful reindeer is one of the top memories for many visitors.

Visit to Sami Museum Siida (approx.3 hours) - Visiting the museum is a nice change from the outdoor activities. The museum is fairly small, but full of information about Sámi culture and history. In addition to the permanent exhibitions, the museum usually has other seasonal exhibits.

Aurora Camp (approx.2.5 hours) - You will be comfortably seated in a sledge pulled behind a guide’s snowmobile and driven to one of the chosen camp spots where an open fire and hot drinks keep you warm while waiting for the sky to show the magical northern lights.

Aurora Snowshoeing (approx.2.5 hours) - Experience the atmosphere of old forests on this relaxed snowshoe walk in the evening to the aurora camp. Walking in the dark forests with the moon as your light and dancing lights overhead is unforgettable. Warm up by the camp fire with hot drinks before returning.

Aurora Hunt by Snowmobile (approx. 2.5 hours) - After driving instructions this snowmobile tour heads to the clear spots where there are higher chances of seeing the northern lights. The distance travelled will vary depending on weather conditions, and if the sky looks promising you will stop to wait for the light show.

Reindeer & Ice Fishing with Snowmobile (approx.4 hours) - meet an authentic reindeer herder and learn about his semi-wild animals and about life in the north. There is also the chance for a short reindeer sledge ride at the farm, as well as snowmobiling and ice fishing with lunch by the open fire.

Snowshoeing (approx.4 hours) - A calm and peaceful way to enjoy the beauty of the snow covered forest - spot animal tracks in the snow and if you're lucky, also meet some wildlife. Lunch by the open fire is included.

Aurora Hunt by Car (approx. 2.5 hours) - Depending on weather, you will try to chase the aurora by heading for one of the specific camp spots and if needed head further out in search of the amazing lights. During the trip warm drinks and snacks are included.
