The main purpose of this trip was to see the Northern Lights and luckily this was achieved on the last night. The 'holiday' included 3 types of winter activities, snowmobiling, snowshoe walking and driving your own team of huskies. The snowmobiling was fun for first 30/40 minutes but it was minus 30° something and the second half was so uncomfortable...cold even with the many layers of clothing and generally many people found this, and other activities, too long. For snowshoe walking you need to be fit...and avoid the night time walking. Driving huskies was great fun and the visit to reindeer farm was made very interesting by the Sami reindeer herder who told us something of his people's culture and struggles. The hotel itself is a marvellous construction and our rooms in

Dear belladonna12015, thank you for your review regarding your stay. It is always really important to us hear what kind of thoughts visit left to you and what you liked and what could be done differently. It is difficult to tell about the activities suitability since every one is used to different things and are excpecting different things. Someone might think that it was fun and didn't last enough and for someone it is enough for that. Huskies are surely one of the most liked one activities what we arrange and it is surely fun! It's also true that when the temperatures are low it is quite a challenge to wear enough clothing to stay warm but our staff is happy to help you with the tips. Many many layers and the thick overalls are the things what keeps you warm. We are happy to hear that you liked your accommodation and that the staff were there for you. Thank you for the feedback regarding the food also. We will take a better look to that one. We want to thank you for visiting us and wish you got nice new memories from Lapland. We are happy for you that the Mother Nature showed her special show for you during your visit to us. On the behalf of the staff, Pirita Wilderness Hotels & Safaris

This is wonderful hotel which is small, warm and cosy with friendly staff and is set above a frozen lake. We stayed in superior rooms which are very warm with great showers and have double beds each with two individual duvets. Breakfast is good but dinner although lovely food is a set menu which would be better with a choice The best part of this holiday were the activities available. We spent a lot of time on snowmobile safaris over the frozen lake and also had a great time driving husky sledges at the sister hotel in Nellin about a 50 minute drive away. The hotel guides who take you on the activities and on the evening aurora camps are very entertaining and brew a great hot chocolate and hot berry juice to keep you warm around the camp fire. Jukka was brilliant with some

My boyfriend travelled from Mexico and I stayed there for four nights after having a hard time getting there due to frustrating flight cancellations at Gatwick airport. The staff at the hotel knew about this and they made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived (Pia, Rita, Kirsten, Saana, thank you!). Their warm treatment toward us made us feel at home. The hotel is beautiful, the food they serve is delicious and the rooms were kept very neat. We had a wonderful time and would definitely return.

My wife and I stayed for 6 nights in Nangu. The Wilderness Hotel has 4 locations. Nellin, Inari, Muotoka and Nangu. It’s designed to be a boutique more exclusive, romantic hotel. It’s the more expensive of the 4 hotels. Location ••••• Just perfect! In the middle of the wilderness! It’s by lake Inari and that means it is a good place for snowmobiling, skiing or just to take a walk around. Aurora hunters: the hotel is in a very good and privilege zone. Even when the apps were showing Kp index 1 (that is a low rate) we were able to see the northern lights for 3 nights. You could go to the lake and have a full sky view with no light interference at all or just walk a few meters from the main building and see them. There is no aurora alert from this hotel but if you are in the

We spent Christmas at the Hotel Nangu and it could not have been more enjoyable. The people are delightful and the experiences of all the activities are amazing . The guides are such lovely people and give you a real taste of outdoor living in Finland. We especially enjoyed the dog sledding and snow shoeing and hopefully will do this again. The cold weather kit was really good .
