Family northern lights break 16.-21.2.

Family northern lights break 16.-21.2.

Stay in a wilderness hotel next to the Russian border and enjoy aurora activities each evening.

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.

Focusing on aurora borealis you could have this kind of activities: 

 

Aurora tour  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.
