Nangu - Lake Inari Auroras Overview

Escape to the wilderness of Finnish Lapland this winter on an activity-filled break at hotel Nangu, set on the shores of a stunning lake. This adult-only (16+) hotel offers elegance, comfort and peace and is positioned in a remote destination that is ideal for searching for the Northern Lights, due to its complete lack of light pollution.

If you were to close your eyes and think of the perfect winter setting, what would you visualise? A snow-carpeted landscape, a location that feels almost in the middle of nowhere, warming hot drinks, toasty open fires, and rustic log buildings? If you spend a winter break at Hotel Nangu, this idyll will be converted into reality…

Wilderness Hotel Nangu sits on the remote southern shores of Lake Inari, perfectly positioned in a wintry haven that offers the ideal combination of relaxation, activities and Northern Lights viewpoints. Our four-night itinerary includes all of this, as we have rolled all the best activities into just three days. There’s time to enjoy your accommodation in between, and three Northern Lights hunts in the evenings.

By day, you will find yourself speeding over the frozen expanse of Lake Inari by snowmobile and guiding your own team of huskies. By night, you will, of course, be on the look-out for the Aurora Borealis. Twice you’ll travel by snowmobile-pulled sleigh as you venture towards a dedicated Aurora Camp, where a warming campfire waits for you. The third will be by snowmobile, so you can search further afield, hopefully escaping any localised cloud cover that might obscure the dazzling colours and formations of the lights.

Your base for the duration is owned by, Jouko and Mari, who already oversee three of our most popular hotels which are in North East Lapland. We’ve worked with them for years and we know that they have been desperate to make their boutique hotel dreams a reality. Hotel Nangu was newly renovated in 2017, and offers elegant rooms, with the option to upgrade to superior rooms with panoramic windows. Not only does the hotel offer ultimate comfort, but it is open to adults only over winter for added tranquility.

So, make a dream a reality this year and experience a winter that you thought only your imagination could conjure up.
