Overview

Nangu Wilderness Hotel is an adult-only resort. With a setting on the southern shore of Lake Inari it has breathtaking open views - perfect for witnessing the northern lights and offers high quality accommodation and thrilling winter activities.

Offering a different concept to its three sister properties - Nellim, Muotka and Inari, which are family friendly resorts - Nangu 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, it is within easy access to the airport and surrounding areas.

Providing an ideal location for relaxation as well as aurora spotting should the conditions allow, there is also a wide range of outdoor activities including husky safaris, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and ice-fishing to keep you entertained both day and evening.

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 everyone. Toast the New Year with sparkling wine before gathering outside for bonfire and fireworks to welcome 2021!

Accommodation

Nangu Wilderness Hotel

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.

Aurora Accommodation Options

Sleeping 2 people, the Aurora Log Cabins have a laser-heated glass roof directly above the bed giving a direct view to the northern sky. Alternatively, for a truly unique experience the Aurora Hut offers a ‘glamping’ opportunity overnighting on Lake Inari only a few hundred meters from the resort’s main building.

Activity Information

finnish lapland inari snowmobiles

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.

finnish lapland apukka resort nordic skiing

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.

finnish lapland inari wilderness aurora istk

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.

finland lapland nangu snowshoes snow

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.

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.
