Nellim Northern Lights Adventure

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 and visitors enjoy a serene setting in which to recharge.

Nellim offers the perfect location for northern lights viewings and winter adventures such as snowmobiling, reindeer and husky sleigh rides, snow shoeing and other Arctic adventures. Choose from wilderness rooms located in three different buildings on the hotel’s premises. Or chose a cosy log suite or cabin—we can also offer an upgrade to an Aurora Bubble or Auroa Kota.

All excursions on days 2-3 indicated below 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.
