Wilderness Hotel Nangu – Tailor Made

  • Details


Tailor your Northern Lights holiday to suit you whilst staying at Hotel Nangu, an adult-only (16+), Aurora-focused hotel. Sitting on the shores of Lake Inari, Finland, this is a perfect base for you to choose from an array of winter activities including snowmobiling, dog-sledding, Northern Lights hunts and more.

Hotel Nangu is a stunning, boutique hotel sitting on the southern shore of Lake Inari, Finland' third-largest lake. Nangu only accepts guests aged 16 and above during the winter period so you would be hard pushed to find a more peaceful and relaxing base for a winter break.

The hotel has been carefully located and designed in order to enhance guests' chances of seeing the Northern Lights. The expansive lake view offers a wide vista of the dark sky which isn't affected by light pollution making it perfect for Aurora hunting.

The lake's thick ice also offers a fantastic playground for Northern Lights-dedicated activities as well as daytime excursions, as its frozen surface can be used for snowmobiling, ice fishing and snowmobile-pulled sleigh rides. Of course, the surrounding snow-laden forests make for excellent snowshoeing routes and cross-country skiing trails. And you don't have to travel very far to enjoy a thrilling dog sledding adventure or a visit to a reindeer farm.

A tailor-made trip to Nangu will allow you to experience all of the best winter activities in a breathtaking wilderness environment whilst staying in the warmth and comfort of a boutique hotel.

All you need to do is select your preferred activities from the Activities tab, speak to our travel experts, and your trip is your own. The perfect way to round off each day spent in the snowy wilderness is to luxuriate in the hotel's traditional sauna. Saunas are bordering on compulsory in Finland and there is no denying that the world always feels like a better place once you emerge from the steam.

Wilderness Hotel Nangu

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.

This is one of Wilderness Hotel’s smaller destinations and there is 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
