Northern Lights Tour Ivalo and Inari

Northern Lights Tour Ivalo and Inari

Magic of Lapland! First two nights in a boutique hotel, then two nights in an aurora cabin with activities you wished for: aurora snowmobiling, mushing a team of huskies and snowshoeing.  We added some Sámi culture. 

Ivalo-Saariselkä  is located in the most northern part of Finland. It is one of the few inhabited areas in the world with such a northern location and therefore this area offers ideal circumstances for notrhern lights watching. Part of Saariselkä is located in the Urho-Kekkonen National Park. The most famous Arctic hills are called Kaunispää, which is next to the village and Kiilopää, which is 17km away from the village. Urho Kekkonen National Park  (=UKK-park) established in 1983 and covering 2 550 square kilometres, it is one of Finland's largest protected areas. It is named after the former president Urho Kaleva Kekkonen.

The wilderness lodge is an adult only boutique hotel by lake Inari. It has been under renovation all summer and autumn, so we cannot yet offer authentic pictures of it but we trust the owner, who also owns three other wilderness hotels. Every single hotel room they have recently built or renovated has become ecological luxury at its best.

Guesthouse Husky  has over 140 Alaskan huskies. 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 at its best. As the days are warmer, even children sitting in sleigh can take a longer 4h safari version..

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.

Before arriving to Inari, you will spend a night in an aurora cabin at Muotka Wilderness Lodge on the hills of tundra. If you are lucky with the weather, you will experience the night of your life observing the dancing lights on the sky.

You will spend the next two nights in a brand new wilderness hotel by lake Inari. This is absolutely the best time of the year for all kinds of activities on the frozen lake. Snow is shining and daytime temperatures vary from -5 to 0 degrees of celcius. Days are getting longer and longer but it is still possible to see northern lights at midnight if you are lucky. You will have a chance to sleep one night in an aurora cabin and observe sky and the changes of light.
