Spring Break in northernmost Lapland

Spring Break in northernmost Lapland

Late spring the nights are getting lighter and lighter so you can take all out of winter activities. Northern lights can be seen at midnight until mid April.

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.

The wilderness hotel  is located by the 3rd biggest lake of Finland, lake Inari. The village is in the south-eastern end of the lake, 45 kilometres east of Ivalo. The hotel 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. This is the time, when Finns themselves usually get to Lapland to ski or spend days on lake Inari fishing. 

Activities:

Snowshoeing  is the best way to take a close look at the Arctic nature and at the same time it is easy but efficient sports. A lunch by open fire is included in this 4-hour walk.

Husky tour (4h) takes you across the rivers and through the snowy landscape. Nothing beats the feeling you get when mushing an eager team of huskies. Lunch will be served during the break in a Lappish hut. This safari is long enough to give both of you sharing a tema of huskie time to enjoy mushing. Please note! It is also possible to drive solo +60€/person or to book a day safari +122€.

Ice-fishing  is the number one activity in April on lake Inari. The Finns can spend whole Sunday sitting on lake. If there is no wind and sun shines, nothing beats this activity. You will be guided by a local fisherman, who will teach you, how to catch fish through the ice in two different ways. 

We did not include other aurora activities than a night in an aurora cabin as it is already quite late in night and on the other hand you are located in a wilderness hotel so you can simply walk out if it looks potential and see the northern lights.
