We visited Lapland in Feb and it was purely for aurora chasing. We werent able to see the northern light at Rovaniemi or Saariselkä and Lake Inari was our last stop. It turned out to be such an amazi experience. I wish we could stay there for some more days.
Everything about it, really, i mean everything, was perfect. The lounge is cozy, you can cook your own meal or join the others by open fire. They even have a small sauna outside. You can book it, use it, and jump into snow after it, in a real Finnish way. We started to be dragged to the middle of the lake at 8pm and stayed there till 8am in the morning. The sky was absolutely clear and we could see the milky way with naked eye. 10mins after we were on the lake, a very weak green light started to rose from the horizon and eventually became an arc. The light lasted for more than 6 hours.
Last but not least, Esko and Sam are the best hosts. They were so nice and friendly, always ready to help. I wish they could see this post. Thanks for the great memories!
