Tour Itinerary

FLY TO IVALO
Nellim Wilderness Hotel - Lapland

DAY 2
WILDERNESS EXCURSIONS*
Snowmobiling - Lapland

Husky safari: meet the musher and learn how to drive a husky sledge around the beautiful frozen Lake Inari.  You will be taught how to handle the sled before you head out for the husky safari, where the huskies will pull your sled through the beautiful winter scenery, passing over frozen Lake Inari. The dogs’ excitement is infectious and as the animals fall silent on the trail, you will realise that this is the only way to see Lapland.

 

Snowshoeing: A snowshoeing trek is the best way to experience the beauty and calmness of Nordic forests. Perhaps spot animal tracks on snow, see the snow-covered forests and if lucky, also meet some wildlife during your trek. There will be a lunch by an open fire on this day.

DAY 3
WILDERNESS EXCURSIONS*
Northern lights - Lapland

Reindeer by Snowmobile: Travel by snowmobile to the reindeer farm, where you will have a chance to meet an authentic reindeer herder and his herd. Here, learn some interesting facts about these semi-wild animals and the life up in the Arctic circle. There will be the possibility for a short reindeer sledge ride, as well as an ice fishing experience. The excursion includes lunch (soup by the 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.

WILDERNESS EXCURSIONS*
Aurora bubble - Lapland

Aurora Camp: This excursion takes you Aurora hunting on stunning Lake Inari. Sit comfortably in 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.
