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,...

This was by far the best holiday I have ever been on. The hotel staff were very friendly and so helpful. They could not do enough and went the extra mile to ensure that we were happy. Our Rep Dan was always to hand to help out where needed. The guides were excellent and made sure that we all had...

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...

We had a wonderful long weekend at Nellim in early February. We booked directly with the hotel, choosing exactly the activities we wanted rather than a package, and I think this is the cheapest way to do it. It's still an expensive holiday but it's worth it for the unique experience. A minibus met our flight and we then had...

We booked our 3 night stay at the Wilderness Hotel through Nordic Experience, tagging on 2 nights in Helsinki (also taking the opportunity to spend a day in Estonia). All flights and connections were hassle free and smooth. Our first night was spent in an Aurora Kota which was pleasant but we probably would have given it a miss if...

We stayed at the Nellim Wilderness hotel for a week towards the end of January. This was to be a bit of a special holiday for us as both my husband and I turn 60 this year, and we wanted to celebrate by doing something we have never done before. Well, we couldn't have picked a better place. From the...
