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.

Inclusive Packages

There is a choice of 3, 4 and 7 night breaks which all include transfers from and to Ivalo airport; full board starting with dinner on the first night to breakfast on the last day; winter clothing for the whole stay and a range of different activities including husky safaris, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, reindeer farm visit and searching for the aurora. Please refer to the itinerary section for the specific activities included with each tour.

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


Lake Inari Snowmobile Adventure (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 trip there will be an outdoor lunch by the camp fire.

Husky and Reindeer day at Nellim (approx. 7 hours) - In the morning you will be transferred by car (approx. 30 mins) to Nellim resort where you will be split in to two groups – one group will head for a Husky safari while the other takes a snowmobile sled trip to the reindeer farm. Both groups then return to Nellim for lunch before participating in the other activity in the afternoon.
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. Sleds are based on two people sharing, taking it in turns to drive.
Visiting the reindeer farm gives you an insight on Sámi culture and way of life in the north. The reindeer herder greets you and tells you more about his life. You have the chance to fed the reindeer – the curious ones may even get close enough to eat out of your hand! Travelling by snowmobile pulled sled you visit the Russian border and the beautiful Nellim church.

Ice Fishing trip with Snowmobile sleigh (approx. 4 hours) - Hop on a sleigh pulled behind a snowmobile driven by the guide and head out for a calm trip full of ice fishing and wonderful winter scenery. Find a good spot and set up camp, waiting for the fish to bite. Lunch is included by the open fire – if you’re lucky it may even be the fish you catch!

Snowshoeing (approx. 4 hours) - Explore the varied terrain around the hotel using snowshoes, a great way to walk on the different surfaces of the frozen Lakes to the enchanting forest and hills. During the walk the guide will share stories and information about Finnish nature and animals. A lunch stop is made with hot drinks around an open fire. This trip is perfect for photographers and nature lovers.

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.
