• Nordic-chic accommodation

  • A full spread of activities, from snowmobiling to husky sledding
  • Adults-only during winter
  • Visit under the Midnight Sun or Northern Lights

The overriding aesthetic is very much in keeping with the lodge’s Lapland setting –Panorama Log Cabins and Superior Rooms mix in the likes of blonde-timber walls with judicious lighting and large picture windows that invite in views of the lake and forests. Some even come with private saunas. And, there’s plenty of Finnish style to savour, too, from matt-black antler fixtures to designer lamps and graphic-print curtains – all very contemporary. It’s a theme that continues into the smaller but no less comfortable Wilderness Rooms, located in two separate buildings in the hotel’s main courtyard.

Of course, food plays a central role in stays here, but the fare on offer is far more than merely fuel to set you up for days in the wilds. Served within the elegant log walls of the recently renovated restaurant, menus showcase the very best of the region’s bounty, including such delicacies as wild salmon, Arctic char, smoked reindeer and mushrooms and berries picked in the surrounding forests. And, while breakfast and lunch are served buffet style, dinners are more of an occasion, complete with table service and an extensive drinks list. Best of all, all the food is included in the price, unless you choose to splash out on one of the celebration packages.

With such delightful rooms and delicious food, you’ll be perfectly placed for days spent exploring the Nangu’s wilderness surrounds. In winter, the menu of activities ranges from snowshoeing to ice fishing on Lake Inari, and those all-time winter classics ¬– husky sledding and snowmobiling. Cross-country skiing is another classically Nordic way to explore, while at night attention focusses to the sky and the celestial trails of the Northern Lights. Of course, you might choose to visit in summer, when the landscapes are set aglow by the Midnight Sun, the verdant forests and fells open up for cycling and hiking and the lake thaws, inviting long, lazy days spent kayaking and fishing.
