A fantastic holiday in an exceptional family run hotel. Minka and Lamu were so genuinely welcoming and couldn't do more to make our stay perfect. Organised and booked through Aurora Zone who were faultless in their efficiency and attention to detail.

One of my best holidays, even when Im doing this solo. The resort is very comfortable, although its in the middle of nowhere. The day's and evenings was filled with different activities from snowmobiling, dog sledging, snowshoeing, and going out the Lake to sit around a fire and wait for the elusive aurora. The guides are very knowledgeable and take...

We watched trip advisor for the last year before we came on our holiday to Nellim Wilderness Lodge. It has been an amazing holiday. Myself and my three sisters loved every minute of it. Minka, Lamu and all the staff can't do enough for you. Dan at Aurora Zone was fab. The food is fantastic and the activities blew us...

Hubby and I went to Nellim for 3 nights having spent 4 nights at its sister hotel in Muotka which was equally good. Our room was extremely comfortable, clean and warm, the food was excellent, and all the trips were amazing fun. We had seen the lights in Muotka so the pressure was off to see them in Nellim too,...

After a cramped Finni flight the meet and greet at ivallo airport went smoothly and this set the tone for the rest of the week. All excursions details were posted in the hotel and certainly we had no issues.The two main guides, Lamu and Emmi were charming and professional... although Emmi gets docked a point for forgetting the berry juice...

We spent 3 nights in this magical place and were lucky enough to see the lights on 2 of them. We had already spent 4 nights at Mutoka Wildnerness Lodge, the sister hotel to Nellim so we knew what to expect and Nellim did not disappoint. Its location by Lake Inari makes it a perfect spot for viewing the lights...

A bucket list holiday - I went to see the Northern Lights and was lucky enough to see them 3 nights in a row which was a very moving experience. My holiday was organised by The Aurora Zone and couldn't have been better. It included days out snowmobiling across beautiful frozen lakes and through Narnia - like forests of snow...

*Two nights is too short of a time, to allot to aurora hunting. *Always check the weather forecast. This is as important as checking the aurora forecast. If it's cloudy, having a strong prediction won't matter. *This area of the Lapland is gorgeous with expanses of wilderness. Cellular reception was surprisingly good in remote areas. *Locals (and tourists) all had...

This was our second trip to Lapland and it was by far the best. We were picked up from the airport in a large Mercedes minibus and arrived at the hotel after only 1 1/2 hrs. The staff were extremely friendly and took us straight to our room after a welcome drink and chat about what to expect in the...
