We spent 4 nights and 3 days in this very nice hotel. We really appreciated the place, very cosy and quiet, far from everything, in the middle of nature. We spent one night in a standard room, one night in a bubble and 2 nights in a room with a sauna (we were actually upgraded to a very nice suite...

Dear Sandraz83. Thank You so much for your kind words. We always try our best so that our guests feel welcomed and have a perfect vacation under the Northern Lights. When it gets as cold as -20 degrees it is most important to use the winter clothing that we provide to make sure the whole stay is comfortable. We will...

We got off the plane at night and travelled in the dark arriving at this hotel which literally is located in the wilderness as there were not many other buildings around and it was surrounded with trees and near to lakes. The room was decorated in rustic fashion and the bathroom was barely finished but still acceptable. The restaurant with...

Dear Ricky. Thank You for your feedback and your kind words. I'm sorry to hear that you did not get the chance to see the Lights properly. On the other hand that means you need to visit us soon again since for example yesterday the Auroras were amazing! Wbr, M Kivisaari

A nice, middle sized hotel in the middle of nowhere in Finnish Lapland, only few kilometers from the Russian border. If the weather is good, an optimal place to observe the Northern Lights. They offer skidoo safaris and various other outdoor activities, too. In the evening you can take a cosy seat at the fireplace and enjoy a glass of...

Had a wonderful trip to nellim wilderness hotel. The hotel has great meals but was especially accommodating to my husband who is a vegetarian making special food just for him. The staff is welcoming and warm. Spent a partial night in 'the Bubble' and saw the lights. Only downside of the Bubble was toilet not yet hooked up so we...

This was a very difficult place to rate, as I understand that part of my negative experience was not the fault of the resort, but that I'm generally not one for group travel. I chose the Wilderness Hotel because it would allow me to explore a remote area safely, as I'm not experienced enough to go off in the wilderness...
