Nellim Wilderness Hotel

5 Day Tour, from £1690 per person

In the far north of Finnish Lapland, on the edge of beautiful Lake Inari, Nellim Wilderness Hotel is a remote retreat where snow-covered forests and frozen lakes provide the backdrop to the day’s adventures. Learn how to drive your own husky-sled through the Lappish wilderness, snowshoe through glittering forest trails and search for the northern lights on a starlit snowmobile safari on this fully-inclusive short break.

Tour Itinerary

Fly to Ivalo
Fly to Ivalo Airport in Northern Lapland and transfer to Nellim Wilderness Hotel, located in the heart of the forest just a few kilometres from the Russian border. Enjoy a Lappish buffet dinner in the cosy wood-cabin restaurant before checking in to a Wilderness Room. Ask a Regent Finland Explorer about upgrading to a private Log Cabin with it’s own living space, kitchenette and sauna. (D)
Snowmobile Safari
Embark on a snowmobile safari through the glistening Finnish landscape, stopping to visit a local reindeer farm. Hand-feed the animals and learn more about this arctic way of life before zipping back through the snowy forests. After dinner, travel to one of the hotel’s special Aurora Camps – remote viewing spots far away from any light pollution – to search for the swirling northern lights. (B,L,D)
Husky Safari
Learn how to mush a traditional dog-sled before heading out with your own pack of huskies across the beautiful frozen waters of Lake Inari. After dinner, take to the snowmobiles once again for a starlit safari past lakes and forest, searching the northern skies for the magical aurora borealis. (B,L,D)
Snowshoe Trek
Don snowshoes and follow trails into the snow-draped forest, returning to the hotel to warm up in the sauna. Perhaps upgrade to an Aurora Bubble for the final night’s accommodation. These compact cabins topped with Perspex domes provide unending views of the northern skies from the comfort of your own bed. (B,L,D)
