Visiting Wilderness Hotel Nangu is like escaping to a winter destination that you thought you could only dream of. The crisp white landscape, the snow-covered log buildings, and the warm glow that emanates from the windows create a destination that oozes cosy charm and peace.

The hotel’s position on the southern shores of Lake Inari creates a stunning backdrop as well as providing excellent Aurora-spotting potential. The mass of open space above the lake is the perfect canvas for the Northern Lights and so, of course, we have made sure that the Aurora activities included are plentiful.

You will hunt for the lights in several ways, including on snowshoes, by snowmobile, and by snowmobile-pulled sleigh. Your expert guides will take you away from any light pollution and towards Northern Lights' viewpoints which have been chosen based on the most recent Aurora activity, cloud cover and weather conditions.

By day, you will experience everything that Northern Finland has to offer, including its wildlife and its incredible landscape. You will crank up the action with cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, a reindeer farm visit, a husky-pulled sleigh ride and snowshoeing, as you explore the landscape in a host of ways and enjoy the glistening, snow-carpeted surroundings.

Over winter, the hotel is only open for guests over the age of 16, meaning extra peace and quiet in your free time.

Please note: If you are staying over Christmas or New Year, you will enjoy a festive dinner and celebrations on the 24th or the 31st of December (traditionally in Finland, Christmas is celebrated on Christmas Eve).

The Specifics

Holiday group size (approximate)

This holiday requires a minimum of 2 people to run, however, on some dates we require a minimum of 8 people for our flight allocation. Maximum 30 people (approximately). Please speak to our Travel Experts for further information.

Group Size

We always try to provide an approximation of the group size you can expect to be with for the duration of each of our holidays. It may be that you are joined by others for parts of your holiday (such as transfers and particular activities) but the above number reflects those you can normally expect to be with from beginning to end. If group size is something which is particularly important to you, please speak to our Travel Experts and they can suggest the best holidays for you.

Tailor-made holiday group sizes will vary for all activities as will the group size for any additional activities you book.

Minimum numbers required for a holiday to operate

Some of our holidays require a minimum number of participants to operate (as listed in the ‘Group Size’ section). If your holiday departure has not yet reached the minimum number, you will be told at the time of booking. In the unlikely event that your chosen date is not guaranteed by nine weeks before your scheduled departure date, we will contact you to discuss the available options as per our booking conditions.

If a specific minimum age applies to this holiday, it can be found in the Key Facts box on the holiday Overview page.

Unless otherwise stated in the Key Facts box on the holiday Overview page, the minimum age for participation in an Aurora Zone holiday is typically 12 years old (there may be younger children in some destinations who have booked with other companies). If an adult-only environment is important to you, then please contact our Travel Experts and they will advise on the best dates and destinations for you. If you are looking for a holiday designed specifically for families then please see our sister company

Itinerary amendments

The order of activities listed in this agenda is provided for guidance only, your final and detailed itinerary will be provided either with your final travel documents (which are uploaded into your online account around a week prior to departure) or upon arrival.

Medical History and Advice

We want our holidays to be accessible as they can be and will do our best to accommodate any special requests and requirements where possible. We have a wide range of holidays and destinations and so our travel experts will help find the best holiday for you.

In order to give us the best possible chance to do this, we ask that if you or any member of your party has any medical condition or disability which may affect your holiday or has any special requirements, that you tell us at the time of enquiry or booking. You must also promptly advise us if any medical condition or disability which may affect your holiday develops after your booking has been confirmed. You may need to provide a doctor’s note and proof of insurance in some cases as the health and safety of our clients is absolutely paramount.

In providing this information you are allowing us to work with our expert local partners to ensure that your whole party can enjoy the holiday. By letting us know in advance we can discreetly work with you to adapt any part of the holiday which may potentially be challenging. Being able to prepare for this in advance makes an incredible difference to what we can offer and minimises any impact on your party and the rest of the group.

Unfortunately, if you choose not to share this information with us in advance then it may limit some or all of the itinerary you have booked, and we cannot be held accountable for any additional costs or missed activities resulting from this.


Insurance is not included in your holiday, but it is a pre-requisite to travelling with us. You will need to ensure that you have cover for all the activities that you will be participating in during your holiday.

It is extremely important that you take out a suitable travel insurance policy at the time of booking. Plans do sometimes change, and you will need this policy should you need to cancel your holiday.

If you are struggling to find a suitable policy then details of our preferred provider, who will cover you for all the activities we offer, can be found on our website by clicking here. Please note that this policy is available to EU residents under the age of 75 only.

Booking Activities Locally

Additional activities can be booked locally in almost all our destinations. However, as per our booking conditions, we cannot be held responsible for any injury or loss incurred through participation in activities which are booked at your destination outside of our holiday itinerary (see our ‘Terms and Conditions’ for further details).

When arranging any such activity please always ensure that safety is your primary concern.

In some of our destinations, you can borrow or hire equipment for use in your free time. You do so entirely at your own risk. You must ensure that you are properly prepared, have the necessary equipment and knowledge (maps, etc) and ensure that where applicable, you follow marked routes. We recommend discussing your plans with the local teams who will be able to advise on the most suitable options for you.

Always let the reception/guide know where you are planning to go and take a torch and mobile phone (with the hotel/guide’s phone number stored). It is also a good idea to leave your contact number and the time you expect to return to the hotel should the hotel need to contact you.

The UK Foreign Office Advice

Our clients’ safety is at the centre of everything we do, and our operations team continually assesses and monitors the destinations we feature. We carry out thorough risk assessments and work closely with all of our suppliers to continually follow best practice. For up to date travel advice the UK government offers its Travel Aware website as well as the advice detailed below.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office Advice

We receive all updates from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) with regards to travel advice and we always ensure that we follow this advice in our operations. The FCO issues travel advisories for countries based on a very wide range of factors. They may provide notification about things as simple as a football match and crowds, or they may go so far as to advise against all travel to a region. We ask all our clients to refer to the relevant Travel Advice by Country for the destinations they are visiting in order to make an informed decision on the safety of the destination based on the details provided. It also provides vital information regarding entry requirements, embassy information, local laws and customs as well as specific safety and health. Guests should take responsibility for keeping themselves up to date with this advice. Please also ensure that, if you are transiting through another country, you have read the advice and meet the entry requirements for that destination too.

The FCO travel advice is applicable to British Passport Holders. Most governments will issue their own travel advice for a region and, if you are not a UK resident then you can find some helpful links below:

Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade 

New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade

Canadian Consular Affairs Bureau

The U.S. Bureau of Consular Affairs

If the FCO deems that there is an unacceptable level of risk for UK citizens then, together with the government, they may issue an advisory against all travel to a region or country. If such an advisory is published, then we will act accordingly, and this may require the cancellation, curtailment or amendment of a holiday itinerary. These decisions are made on the basis of ensuring our clients’ safety and will affect all clients on the holiday, regardless of their nationality.

If one of our local experts suggests an amendment due to a situation which develops locally then we may also take the decision to amend an itinerary appropriately.

If we have to cancel your holiday prior to departure you will be offered the option of an alternative trip (where any price difference will either be refunded to or covered by you) or a full refund of the monies paid.

If we have to curtail a holiday, then you will be refunded for any costs for the elements we have been unable to deliver, where we have been able to secure a refund from our suppliers. If we must reroute a holiday, then any basis for refund is determined on a case by case basis and dependent on whether the central holiday experience was provided or not.

Brexit information for British Passport holders

Information for British Passport Holders

It is your responsibility to ensure that your passport and/or any required visas are up to date for your holiday.  Please take special note of rules relating to passport validity as these have changed since Brexit.  You can find more general advice from the UK government on their Passport rules for travel to Europe and then country specific advice on the Foreign Travel Advice page under the entry requirements section.

Please also check the UK Governments ‘Get Travel Smart’ campaign for up to date information on travel advice by country, information on Travel Insurance and information on how to renew your passport if required.

Flight schedule changes and connecting transportation

On your documentation, we will confirm your flight schedule. Sometimes the flight number, routing and timings might change prior to your departure. If the change is classed as a significant change then we will contact you to discuss this. Please see our booking conditions for details.

Flight schedule changes can impact on your pre and post-holiday travel arrangements if these have been booked separately to your holiday. We strongly recommend that you do not book transport (such as trains or transfers), car parking or non-connecting flights to the departure point for your holiday until you have received your final confirmed travel times when your final travel documents are issued. We are not responsible for the effect of any schedule change on your pre or post travel arrangements. We strongly recommend that you do not purchase non-flexible or non-refundable tickets to avoid cancellation and penalty charges.

Booking your own flights - cancellation disclaimer

If you have chosen to book your own flights, then you will need to wait until we confirm to you that the holiday departure has met the minimum numbers required to run (if applicable to your chosen holiday). Once the holiday is guaranteed to run, you will be informed and you can then make your arrangements.

If transfers are included in your holiday, please ensure that any potential flights will be met by our standard transfers (speak to one of our Travel Experts for advice) otherwise private transfer supplements may be applicable. Once your flights are booked, please send us a copy of your detailed flight itinerary.

Please be aware that most tickets are non-refundable in the case of cancellation. For this reason, we strongly advise you check the rules of the ticket and check the limitations of your cancellation insurance before booking. We cannot be held liable, in the unlikely eventuality that we should be forced to cancel or amend your trip, for losses incurred relating to any flight booking you have made.

    Use tonight to settle in and relax, enjoy a meal in the hotel restaurant. You will then receive your cold weather clothing (this will be done tomorrow morning if you arrive on a later flight). Take this chance to venture outside to take advantage of the vast, expansive views from the lake which offer fantastic Northern Lights-spotting potential. You might begin your week by witnessing a dazzling display of glistening colours and awe-inspiring formations across the sky.

    Please note that the order of activities listed in this agenda is provided for guidance only, your final itinerary will be provided on arrival at your accommodation.

    * Transfers are based on a scheduled group shuttle that sometimes stops at a few nearby hotels. If you would prefer to upgrade to private taxi transfers please ask our Travel Experts for a quotation.

    Included Meals:  Dinner
  • Your first morning will begin with a thrilling snowmobiling lesson. After a safety briefing and full tuition, you will take control and head out on a short safari using some of the nearby trails to gently ease you into the activity. Two people will share a snowmobile and you must hold a valid driving licence and be 18 years or older in order to drive. You will be out for around two hours.

    You will return to the hotel for a warming lunch and there will be some free time for you to relax this afternoon. The sauna can be reserved for guests to enjoy and the lounge area is an ideal place in which to unwind and relax with a book.

    This evening, you will head out on your first Aurora hunt. You will strap on snowshoes and head out on foot with your guide leading the way. With head torches illuminating the landscape you will journey along the snow-covered trails to a prime Aurora viewpoint. Here you will enjoy warm drinks as you wait and watch for the Northern Lights to hopefully appear. This activity will last for around two and a half hours in total.

    Included Meals:  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  • Today you will experience one of the most popular winter activities, dog sledding. After breakfast, you will be transferred to a husky farm.

    Your guide will lead you to meet the huskies who will make their eagerness for the trail acutely obvious through excited barks and howls. They must, however, wait until you have been given a full safety briefing and instructions on how to control the sled. Then, finally, it will be time to set out on the trails, gliding over the expanse of snow-carpeted land. You will enjoy the safari in pairs, with the opportunity to swap driver and passenger if you wish to do so.

    Once the ride is over, the dogs will be far calmer, offering the perfect moment to pet them and take photos. 

    After lunch at the hotel, you’ll be taken to a reindeer farm, where you will meet a local reindeer herd and his animals. You’ll learn about Sámi culture and the life of the reindeer and you will also have the chance to meet and feed the reindeer.

    Don’t miss the opportunity to look out for the Northern Lights tonight, as you never know when they may decide to grace you with their presence.

    Included Meals:  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  • After a very busy day yesterday, we have left the daytime free for you today. You can snuggle up with a good book, explore independently, or speak to the hotel about any additional activities you may want to include. Your meals, of course, will be served at Nangu.

    After dinner tonight, your guide will take you out into the dark night to hunt for the Aurora Borealis. In a sledge pulled by your guide’s snowmobile, you will head to a prime viewpoint, increasing your chances of seeing the Aurora as you become truly immersed in darkness. You will be out for approximately two and a half hours.

    While you wait for a potential appearance, you will sit around a campfire and keep warm, enjoying hot drinks and listening to your guide tell you all about the Aurora.

    Included Meals:  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  • Fill up on breakfast this morning as you prepare for an active couple of hours gliding over the snow on cross-country skis.

    This is one of Finland’s most popular activities and you need no prior experience of any form of skiing to enjoy this sport. A full lesson and briefing will be given beforehand, and before you know it you’ll be gliding along the trails like the best of them.

    Once your guide feels that the group are ready, he/she will lead a short ski trip in the surrounding area, usually heading out across Lake Inari. The activity will last around two hours in total.

    After lunch at the hotel this afternoon, you will have some time to relax, resting after an active morning and preparing for a thrilling Aurora excursion tonight.

    Following dinner, you will meet with your guide to prepare for your snowmobile Aurora hunt. A full lesson and safety briefing will be given before you set off on the trails once again.

    Riding two people per snowmobile, you will make your way into the darkness on a hunt for the Aurora (approximately two and a half hours). You will have the chance to swap driver and passenger during the ride, but please note that you must hold a valid driving licence and be 18 years or older in order to drive a snowmobile.

    With any luck, the Northern Lights will appear, and you can all hit the brakes and stare in awe at a mystical show of light moving across the sky.

    Included Meals:  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  • After a rather active and fast-paced day yesterday, we have taken everything down a notch, with a snowshoeing excursion. Although snowshoeing can be physical, it is a slow-paced and peaceful activity, ideal for exploring the surroundings in a tranquil and gentle manner.

    Snowshoes will be provided, and your guide will help you fit them to your boots in preparation for the walk. Your guide will take you through the landscape, pointing out any animal footprints that you may come across, and discussing the surrounding nature with you as you take your time touring the snow-laden forests. It is a great chance for photography (just keep your camera and batteries warm).

    The activity will last for around four hours in total, including time for lunch around an open fire and warm drinks.

    After dinner this evening you can head down to the lake for your own Aurora stake out.

    Included Meals:  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  • Today has been left free for you to tailor your time. You could use this opportunity to take a break, enjoying your cosy accommodation and curling up with a book by the fire. You could head outside the hotel for some independent exploration of the area and to enjoy the peaceful environment surrounding this very special spot.

    Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served in the restaurant, as usual, today, followed by an Aurora Camp excursion tonight. For the final time, you will head out to a camp in a snug snowmobile-pulled sleigh, keeping warm and relaxing as you go. Remember to keep your eyes on the sky, as you never know when the elusive lights are going to make an appearance.

    Once you arrive at the camp, you can reminisce about the fantastic memories that you have made during your trip, while the campfire crackles and flickers in the background. As you sip on a hot drink and peer at the sky, you will hopefully catch sight of the awe-inspiring Aurora Borealis tonight. This activity lasts for around two and a half hours.

    Included Meals:  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  • Today you must depart, as you take your transfer to Ivalo Airport in time for your flight home. If you are on an early flight, a packed breakfast will be provided. If you depart on a later flight, you will have breakfast in the restaurant.

    Included Meals:  Breakfast

Wilderness Hotel Nangu

Nights: 1-7

Wilderness Hotel Nangu is an adult-only (16+), boutique hotel tucked away in a secluded spot close to the shores of Lake Inari in North East Finnish Lapland. This is the ideal place for those wanting to escape to a real haven of peace and quiet which just oozes rustic style, charm and comfort. Think handmade wooden furniture, sheepskins, stunning log architecture, comfy chairs and roaring fires; all with a view over snow-laden trees and a vast frozen lake beyond.

The central log-built restaurant and reception building is a spectacular spot in which to dine and unwind and the elegant wooden buildings which contain the bedrooms are around 20-50 metres away.

The hotel was transformed in 2017 by our longstanding friends and partners Jouko and Mari and they have really put their heart and soul into making Wilderness Hotel Nangu the grown-up retreat that it is.

In prime Aurora territory and just a minute’s walk from the shores of Lake Inari, this is really an incredible place in which to hunt the Northern Lights.

There are only 36 bedrooms here and so there is also a real exclusivity about this place and we would really recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.

Hotel Facilities

  • The wonderful main log building contains the reception, dining area and lounge where a roaring log fire and tasteful décor makes for a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere
  • We think the food at Nangu is delicious and the setting for your meals could not be more delightful. Breakfasts and lunches are both 'help yourself' buffets with local and international flavours. Evening meals consist of three courses: starters and desserts are self-service buffet style and your main course will be served to you at your table (except for Christmas and New Year's Eve). Guests are provided with two or three choices each evening
  • There is a sauna situated in one of the bedroom buildings and this is available for guests to reserve during their stay. The ideal way to relax after a day of activities
  • Free Wi-Fi is available in the public areas at Nangu, but really, other than checking the Aurora forecasts, we recommend that you just switch off from the outside world

Room types

Standard Wilderness Room (double or twin)

All rooms at Nangu are comfortable and elegantly decorated with a cosy and rustic, wooden interior, offering a traditional yet stylish Finnish ambience. The standard rooms accommodate two people, have a large window, an en-suite shower and toilet with a hairdryer. They also include tea and coffee making facilities. Single rooms are also available which are slightly smaller and accommodate solo travellers.

The expert local team will situate them in a prime Aurora location on the edge of frozen Lake Inari, so you will be away from any artificial light pollution.

Because they need to be easy to move by snowmobile, the huts are compact, but they have electricity, miniature kitchenette and Wi-Fi. The clever designers have also managed to fit in a small composting toilet for convenience. You’ll only be a short distance from Nangu so you can utilise your room’s shower facilities the next morning before breakfast.

Traveller Reviews

The whole holiday exceeded my expectations. The various trips and the guides were excellent. 24 February 2019 by Rory Shaw & Angela Foyle

Huskies, snowmobiling, skiing, snowshoe safari and of course Northern lights were all wonderful. The area was so peaceful, beautiful and empty of people.
