Standing on the southern shore of Lake Inari, the view across a vast expanse of Arctic wilderness from the perfectly named Wilderness Hotel Nangu will take your breath away. Adult only in winter, open to all in summer, this boutique hotel was transformed by partners Jouko and Mari in 2017 to create the perfect blend of escapism and authenticity.

Panorama Log Cabins
Designed to provide the utmost comfort and cosiness, the resort's Panorama Log Cabins cabins are an oasis of relaxation. Warm up by the crackling fireplace in the living area or indulge in the soothing heat of a private sauna after a day of outdoor adventures. Each cabin boasts modern amenities, including a fully-equipped kitchen, spacious beds, and a welcoming interior. The hot tub located on a private terrace is not just a feature; it's a gateway to a world of serenity and bliss.
Luxury eco aurora huts
These exceptionally eco-conscious designed pods are in fact floating vessels that can easily be moved from place to place, so depending on the season, nights can be spent on ice, snow and even water. During winter, Lake Inari freezes and expert aurora hunters place the pods in a prime location far away from light pollution to heighten the chances of seeing the ethereal northern lights.
