Full description

Nangu Hotel offers a different concept to the other three properties that Mari and Jouko own, which are family friendly resorts – it is an adult only resort consisting of three log buildings, giving the hotel an authentic feel of Lapland and only 20 minutes from Ivalo village with easy access to the airport and surrounding areas.

Activities

Nangu offers a wide range of different activities including husky safaris, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and searching for the aurora. Please refer to the itinerary section for the specific activities.

Accommodation

The main lodge is open plan with a large panorama window facing the lake and comfortable lounge areas with fire place at one end. There are 24 rooms in total, furnished in an authentic Lapland style and split between standard rooms - 15 are in a separate building and 4 are in the original part of the lodge. The third building houses the superior rooms (larger with panoramic window facing Lake Inari), 1 of which has a private sauna. So the number of guests will be relatively low, giving an intimate and cosy atmosphere to the resort.

Activity Information


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. Light lunch included

Cross Country Skiing (approx. 2 hours) - 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 admiring the beautiful scenery, stopping to take pictures and enjoy warm drinks on the way.

Aurora Camp (approx. 2.5 hours) - Seated comfortably in a sledge pulled behind a guide’s snowmobile you are 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. The atmosphere by the camp fire is an experience by itself and located away from any artificial lights, Lake Inari is one of the best places for aurora viewing.

Aurora snowmobiling (approx. 2.5 hours) - After receiving instructions and safety information head to Lake Inari looking for the best spots to view the open night sky in search for the northern lights. The driving distance depends on weather conditions.

Aurora Snowshoeing (approx. 2.5 hours) - Snowshoeing on the frozen lake during night time is an adventure of its own. You wander on the lake and surrounding wilderness heading for the camp, where you sit back with hot drinks while gazing at the sky, waiting for the aurora to appear.

Husky Safari and Reindeer Farm visit (approx. 6 hours) - After a short lesson the huskies will take you through the beautiful scenery. Continue to the Reindeer farm and meet the reindeer. Learn more about the life of a herder before heading back to the hotel. Lunch included.
