We (two families of four including children) visited this awesome place in the month of December 2016. Nellim, is a small village close to Russian border and set in Wilderness over looking lake Inari. This place is a true winter wonderland one I had only dreamt of and my dream has come true. We stayed for four nights from 22-25...

We stayed five night in April 2017, just right before their season end. We arrived at the hotel at around 1430, which was already passed their lunch. Hotel staff were so nice, after they learnt that we just flew 20 hours from home to there, they offer to make us some lunch to welcome us. We stayed in the log...

Fantastic location - you feel like you are in the wilderness. All tours and activities are handled through the hotel. We ended up changing one activity and this was no problem at all for the staff. Food was the nice highlight. Hearty warm filling meals at lunch and dinner. Choice of European styled breakfast, toast, bacon eggs etc. Accommodation was...

We stayed here for 4 nights in early March on a package booked with Aurora Zone. The setting on the edge of frozen Lake Inari is just magical. Outside temperature when we arrived was -9 but the hotel was warm & cosy inside, and the staff were very welcoming. The food was tasty and plentiful, and the general ambience was...

What an amazing place and where do I start with this review?! Staff were fantastic, warm and welcoming, always happy to help. The lodge we stayed in was spacious and clean. We had a sauna also which we used regularly after coming in from the snow. Beds were comfortable and warm. Our package included all the food and I have...

My partner and I stayed for 5 days in February. We had a very warm welcome from all of the staff. Our itinerary was explained to us and made very clear which activities we will be doing on each day. We stayed in our own cabin which was extremely homely complete with its own sauna (Which comes in handy for...

This was a long-awaited and much-anticipated trip which has been top of my bucket list for a long time. We booked through Discover the World, a UK company. From the moment we arrived, and even before we had officially checked in, we were welcomed with warm hospitality and given breakfast after a long-haul flight from Singapore. We were fortunate enough...

We went on this holiday as a treat for my husband's 50th birthday. It was worth every penny we spent! We booked it via Aurora Zone travel in the UK and their organisation was tremendous - we didn't have to worry about a thing. We were met at the airport and transported to the hotel where we were met by...

Nellim Wilderness Hotel is set in a incredible location, at the edge of one of the many Lake Inari's inlets. The frozen lake was pristine with its huge expanse of snow. Many of our activities took place on the lake - ice fishing, sled ride with the huskies, aurora hunting or just walking. We stayed in the log suite which...
