An Active Escape
The vast Lake Inari, which is the third largest lake in Finland, is an excellent base for excursions and activities.
Simple snowmobile routes, without obstacles such as trees to slow you down, are mapped out across the lake by expert guides. The opportunity for ice fishing is also right on your doorstep, as you head out with a guide to drill a hole in the ice and wait patiently for something to emerge from the icy depths. And what’s more, you can cosy up in a sledge in order to get there, as your guide pulls you along in his or her snowmobile until you reach the ideal fishing spot.
Venturing away from the lake, there are snowshoeing trails, cross-country skiing routes and an Aurora Camp, where a campfire and hot drinks await your arrival. Nangu’s proximity to Nellim means that you can return to civilisation for a husky and reindeer day.
This day-long excursion includes a snowmobile-pulled sleigh ride, a husky safari, a Sámi culture and reindeer experience and a visit to Nellim’s stunning log church.
Nangu’s location is ideal for Aurora hunting and the evening activities available have all been designed to maximise your chances of seeing the lights. The lack of light pollution means that the sky is a perfect canvas for an Aurora display.
