Lapland Break at the Inari Hotel

5 Day Tour, from £1600 per person

In the far north of Finnish Lapland, on the edge of beautiful Lake Inari, the Inari Wilderness Hotel is a remote retreat where snow-covered forests and frozen lakes provide the backdrop to the day’s adventures. Far from major civilisation, this is a fantastic place from which to search for the northern lights by snowmobile and even at an Aurora Camp. You'll also learn how to drive your own husky-sled through the Lappish wilderness and snowmobile through glittering forest trails.

Four types of accommodation are available at Inari Wilderness Hotel: choose from a Wilderness Room, an Aurora Cabin, an Arctic Chalet or a Log Cabin. Stays here are full-board, with both lunch and dinner served buffet-style in the beautifully-designed restaurant. All excursions on days 2-4 are included in this holiday, but the order in which you enjoy them may vary depending on timing and snow conditions when you arrive in Finland.

Snowmobiling: This day is all about the local winter fun – snowmobiling in wilderness! Your guide will teach you how to safely drive these powerful machines before heading out to wilderness. Snowmobiling through white winter scenery is a breathtaking experience that will last for a lifetime. During the day, there will be a tasty outdoor lunch by open fire.

 

Aurora Snowmobiling: Night time snowmobiling is an exhilarating experience. Head out in search of a good location to try and spot the Aurora Borealis. If the northern lights appear, we’ll stop, turn off the head torches and snow mobiles to admire nature’s light show. There will be warm drinks to keep us warm and comfortable during this wintry excursion.

Aurora Camp: This excursion takes you Aurora hunting on the stunning Lake Inari. Sit comfortably a sledge that is pulled by the guide’s snowmobile. Enjoy the northern sky all the way to the camp place. While observing the night sky, warm up around a blazing campfire sipping hot drinks and enjoying each other’s company. The atmosphere by the campfire is an experience in itself. Lake Inari is one of the best places in the world for aurora viewing since there is no light pollution at all. If you are lucky, you might get to enjoy this unique light phenomenon.
