Spent a short break between Christmas and New Year at this wonderful location. The Finns are remarkably hospitable and you are made to feel welcome from the moment you arrive to the final moments of your trip. Everywhere is clean and comfortable, though somewhat rustic in places. Although the communal restaurant can get busy, (we did not expect to be...

the Nellim Wildernesshotel is a beautiful resort in the middle of finnish Lappland. For years I have been working as a tourguide for different companies. This hotel is one of my favourites. The staff is genuine friendy and kind, the food is good and plenty, the atmosphere cosy and relaxed. Lotta, who takes care of co - ordinating activities like...

We went to the Nellim Wilderness Hotel to fulfil a "bucket list" item to see the Aurora Borealis and we were lucky and saw them on several nights of our stay. But frankly even if we had not seen the northern lights this would have been one of the most beautiful places on earth. The frozen lake, the pristine wilderness...

It's taken me a few weeks to write this but I really must say what a fabulous experience this was. The hotel offers incredible value with all meals and activities included. You literally turn up and don't have to plan or think - it's all done for you. And if like me you get your times wrong the hotel will...

We stayed in the Nuora Cabin on the Arctic Explorer package over Christmas 2016, booked directly via the hotel. There is a lot to like about the experience, in that the activities were all terrific, we had a white Christmas, we saw the aurora on Christmas night, the staff were always smiling and the Lapland wilderness once you get away...

This was a Brilliant holiday. My partner and I wanted to see the Northern Lights but new it wasn't guaranteed so wanted at least to have something memorable in case we didn't. We were not disappointed. This was one of the most fantastic holidays/experiences we have ever had. Even though it was obviously their busiest time it was so organised...

We spent a week at the blissful Wilderness Hotel in Nellim in February 2016. The hotel is fabulous. Our room was in the main block which meant that for meals we did not need to wrap up with layers of clothes to move from building to building. The temperature during our stay was on average -16c at night and around...

This experience was truly wonderful, we were looking for something different in a holiday, and decided as it was just after Christmas that we would find the snow. As we were non skiers, we wanted to find something that we had plenty to do that didn't involve this. This place is magical,every day we had an activity arranged for us.it...
