Log Cabin & Overnight Husky Safari 16.12.-22.12.

Log Cabin & Overnight Husky Safari 16.12.-22.12.

Luxurious cabin in Nellim, far out in the wilderness with a sledge dog safari,  snowmobiling to a reindeer farm, snowshoeing and an aurora camp. 

Aurora Borelis  is a natural phenomenon with the highest propability to occur in September-October and again in February-March. The northern part of Lapland belongs to the auroral zone. You can see auroras there throughout the winter on three out of four nights, even though you cannot see them if the weather is cloudy. You need a clear and dark night. The best time of the day is plus minus 2 hours from the midnight.

Nellim wilderness hotel  is located by the 3rd biggest lake of Finland, lake Inari. The Nellim village is in the south-eastern end of the lake, 45 kilometres east of Ivalo. Nellim has ten aurora bubbles, glass igloos, which offer a unique way to watch at the northern lights safe and warm through the night from your bed. 

Polar night takes place from the first week of December to the second week of January. The coldest month is January. After that the days are getting longer fast and the sun shines more and more warming the days and daytime activities. For families we recommend the early season from mid-November to late December and again from mid-February to mid-April.

Activities included in the package:

1) Snowshoeing tour  (4h) takes you to the snowy forest. After a while you will arrive at campfire where you wilderness guide will prepare lunch for you. Snowshoeing is easy but gives you a good deal of exercise. Alternatively you may choose cross-country skiing by easy back-country skies.

2) Snowmobiling to a reindeer farm (5h), where you will hea wbout reindeer herding and can feed reindeers. On the way back you can see, how winter fishing takes plase by nets and can try ice-fishing. 

OR 

Cross country skiing 2h  is a fun activity taking place at the hotel. Your skiing instructor will give you easy back-country skies to start with. You wil learn the basic techniques and will make a short skiing tour in the hotel neighborhood. 

+

Aurora tour 2,5h is worth taking on one night at least. There are several types of aurora safaris available: by car, snowshoes or pulled by a snowmobile. By car you can get to the famous Paatsjoki bridge and have campfire, by snowshoes you have to work out yourself in order to get to campfire and in third option you are pulled to campfire by snowmobiles and you can look at the sky without having to drive. 

3. Overnight husky safari   takes you over the Arctic landscape, rivers and lakes to a wilderness cabin. Each participants including the 14-year old has his/her own team of huskies. When arriving to the wilderness cabin, you will first take care of the dogs, then yourselves. 

The Alaskan huskies  are friendly, social and active dogs, which are very eager to run and pull the sledge. They like working!  Sled-dog ride  is a great way to experience the Lappish nature in winter. In mid-winter, when it is dark outside and you are using headlamps, it is really exciting. In spring, when it is really bright and white outside, it is really enjoyable. For the overnight safari you'll get your own sledge pulled by 4-5 huskies, which means you get to mush your team the whole time and train your skills in mushing in many ways. in many kinds of terrains.
