Guided Northern Lights Break 13.-17.3.

Guided Northern Lights Break 13.-17.3.

Travel to the northernmost Lapland in a small group of 6-10 people. Experience all the winter activities from snowshoeing and snowmobiling to ice-fishing and sledge-dog safaris. Enjoy Lappish delicacies and hunt for northern lights.

Northern lights are dancing on the sky in this area on 3 out of 5 nights. However, you can only see them on a clear night, when clouds are not covering them. Aurora hunting means finding open spots, where the sky is clear.  The experience is magical. Your guide will give you tips, how to catch northern light moments as great photographs..

Please note that there is no guarantee you will see northern lights as it is a natural phenomenon. 

Boutique hotel Nangu  is an old wilderness lodge, which has been fully renovated during 2017 and opened on 20th of December.  You will find log houses with cozy hotel rooms split around the area. Dinner is served at tables. The hotel is located by lake Inari, the third largest lake in Finland, also called as the sea of Lapland.

Inari  is the centre of the Sámi culture in the Finnish Lapland. Sámi people are the indigenous people of the Arctic area of Finland, Sweden. Norway and Russia. In Inari there is the Sámi parliament and a very insteresting museum called Siida giving you the basic understanding for the area right after arrival.  There is also a very good restaurant called Aanaar, white-listed in masterclass.

Inari Wilderness Hotel  is owned by the same family as Nangu, Nellim and Muotka Widlerness Lodge. This is a brand new holiday resort by lake Inari as well. There are large, luxurious aurora cabins with own sauna and bathroom. This is, how you will spend your last night observing auroras.

Your tour leader Riitta  is a local Finnish tour operator, who has been taking hundreds of Responsible Travel clients on tailormade self-guided tours to Lapland. She will join this group herself making this tour safe choice for you and offering an interesting chance to travel together in a small group. 

Activities: 

1. Snowshoeing (4h) gives you sports after the flights. As your whole body is working, snowshoeing keeps you warm. Half-way you will sit by open fire to have some lunch. 

2. Lunch at Design House Idoli offers you a chance to enter the world of Finnish design. Hosted by Hanneli and Pekka Sillfors you will get a chance to taste Lappish delicacies and enjoy the unique mileau. It is also possible to make purchases.
