School Holiday in the northernmost Lapland 10.-18.2.

School Holiday in the northernmost Lapland 10.-18.2.

First a few days in the wilderness, then a short visit to the village of Inari before two days at a husky farm and two sledge dog safaris. Last but not least a night in a luxurious glass igloo.  

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. 

In spring the days are getting longer and the sun shines more and more often. During the days you can ski on the Inari lake or on ski tracks.

Activities:

Aurora camp (3h) takes you by sleigh pulled by a snowmobile on lake Inari to watch on northern sky and sit by a campfire. If you are lucky, you will see northern lights.

Snowshoe tour  (4h) allows you to enter the snowy forest and get up to the hills to see the Nellim village and the wide open views of lake Inari. Snowshoeing is easy but gives you a good deal of exercise. Light lunch and warm drinks by an open fire are included.

Snowmobiling safari to a reindeer farm  (5h)  leads you further away on the frozen lake. First you will have a snowmobiling lesson and get instructions how to handle this powerful machine. After you feel comfortable with driving, it is time to go and drive to a reindeer farm, where you will have a short reindeer sleigh ride. You will also learn, how winter fishing takes place. You will see the beauty of northern nature and landscape. Your guides will tell you about life in the wilderness. Picnic lunch is included in the tour. 

Village of Inari  is the center of Finnish Sámi people. The Sami people (or Lapps)  are indigenous people living in the northernmost areas of Finland, Norway, Sweden and Kola peninsula of Russia. In order to get a better understanding of the area, where you are traveling, we have included in this package a visit to the Sámi museum Siida. In Inari you will also see the Sámi parliament of Finland called Sajos as you will walk by on your way to Siida. Your hotel Kultahovi is well known for their Lappish kitchen.

Guesthouse Husky is a husky farm and a small family owned hotel. There are over 150 Alaskan friendly huskies, which are always eager to run and pull the sledge. They really 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. You will have two husky safaris. First a 4h safari two people sharing one team of huskies. For the day 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. Alternatively you can choose a 3-day husky safari taking you to a wilderness cabin and all in all 150-170km of mushing at extra cost of +328€/person.

Saariselkä  is the most northern skiing resort in Finland. It is a ski village known as a cross-country skiing paradise but there are also 15 slopes and a lot of other activities, for example the longest toboggan slide in the country (=over 1 km). On your way to your last hotel you can stop in the ski village for a couple of hours and take a taxi to the Muotka wilderness hotel, when you want (this taxi is not included in price).

Muotka Wilderness hotel is located on the hills close to Saariselkä but out of the illumination in Kakslauttanen. This hotel has big aurora cabins with enough space for 3 people and an own bathroom and sauna. Our clients really like the igloos of this relatively small hotel.
