Days 2-3. Activities
Reindeer Day with snowmobile
A guided snowmobile tour that will give you an insight on Sámi culture and way of life in the north. The reindeer herder welcomes you and you will be invited to the reindeer enclosure. The guide will tell you more about the Sámi culture and the life of a reindeer herder. You will feed the reindeer – the curious animals might even come up and eat out of your hand! After the amazing experience you will have lunch by the open fire. Comfortably seated on reindeer hides around the fire, you will be served reindeer soup and warm drinks that have been heated over the fire. During the day we will make stops at the Nellim church and the Russian Border, and you will also have a chance to try ice fishing.
An absolute ‘must do’ when visiting Nellim! You will be taught how to handle the sled before you head out for the husky safari, where the huskies will pull your sled through the beautiful winter scenery, passing through frozen Lake Inari. The dogs’ excitement is infectious and as the animals fall silent on the trail, you will realize that this is the only way to see Lapland. All our husky safaris include full instruction and are based on two people sharing a sled unless otherwise stated.
Aurora Sledge private safari
Aurora sledge is a heated sledge with an open roof view that is specially designed for enjoying the aurora from the warmth of the sledge, going around Lake Inari to the best viewing points.
Day 3. Overnight in Aurora Bubble
You will spend your last night in the Aurora Bubble, finishing your stay on a truly unique note. There’s nothing like the experience of lying comfortable and warm in your own bed under billions of stars, observing the night sky and waiting for the aurora to show up.
