This was a long-awaited and much-anticipated trip which has been top of my bucket list for a long time. We booked through Discover the World, a UK company. From the moment we arrived, and even before we had officially checked in, we were welcomed with warm hospitality and given breakfast after a long-haul flight from Singapore. We were fortunate enough...

We went on this holiday as a treat for my husband's 50th birthday. It was worth every penny we spent! We booked it via Aurora Zone travel in the UK and their organisation was tremendous - we didn't have to worry about a thing. We were met at the airport and transported to the hotel where we were met by...

Nellim Wilderness Hotel is set in a incredible location, at the edge of one of the many Lake Inari's inlets. The frozen lake was pristine with its huge expanse of snow. Many of our activities took place on the lake - ice fishing, sled ride with the huskies, aurora hunting or just walking. We stayed in the log suite which...

We stayed here early March 2017 and had a good time. We came here from Muotka (sister hotel), which in our experience was better service/food, but Nellim was in a better location due to being more remote (away from light) and by the frozen lake which was amazing for aurora viewing. We had a great time here, some amazing aurora...

Returned a week ago from the best holiday of our lives! This was a special trip for our silver wedding anniversary, and we spent a long time deciding where to go. Going to Nellim for the 'Aurora in the Wild' was the best decision we could have made! From the moment we arrived at Ivalo airport we were well looked...

Loved the lake inari during my stay where it was covered with snow. The cabin wass so cosy and comfortable with sauna. Food was delicious. Do rent the aurora phone as it alerted us and we caught pics of it. The activities were fun n the guides were friendly. Made friends during the trip

We came here to enjoy the adventures and see The Northern Lights, we were not disappointed . Even had we not seen the Lights we would have had a great vacation, seeing them the cherry on the cake. We paid extra and enjoyed a log cabin, with a mezzanine floor with two single beds and our own private sauna in...

We booked a 6 night winter adventure at Nellim Wilderness Hotel in early March 2017 staying in a log suite. The hotel is located in Nellim (population approx. 150) which is about a 45 minute drive from Ivalo airport. On arrival our driver was standing at the airport and the free transfer from the airport to the hotel was very...

Visited Nellim Wilderness Hotel with some friends - what an experience! Our stay in the log cabins were fantastic - definitely worth the upgrade from the hotel rooms. All the activities were brilliantly organized - loved the snow shoeiing, husky sledding, snow mobiling & visit to the reindeer farm! Food was delicious and not as basic as other posts indicated....

This holiday was my second visit to the 'Wilderness Hotel' and the skies did not disappoint for a second year. First 4 nights were amazing and culminated in a KP6 storm over head for hours, sky was full of Aurora and did not know where to look. I love the location and people and will be going back again with...
