Wilderness Hotel Inari has a wonderful location by a beautiful Arctic lake in the far northern reaches of Finnish Lapland and just a few minutes from Inari village - this perfect setting combines pristine nature, breath taking views and an ideal place for aurora viewing. The wilderness resort offers exciting winter activities as well as accommodation in three different styles.
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 local 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.
Travelling in December - Christmas and New Year
Christmas and New Year are a very magical time here in the Arctic, beautiful festive lights sparkling in the snow, decorations and tasty traditional food and cakes. On Christmas Eve, the much awaited Santa will bring a small present for children and adults alike. Toast the New Year with sparkling wine before gathering outside for bonfire and fireworks to welcome 2021!
