Planning a trip to Finland? Why not try out one of the country’s newest wilderness properties, the Hotel Nangu and witness a stunning nighttime aurora?
Witnessing an Aurora in the night sky is high-up of many people’s bucket list and there is now a new luxury hotel on the scene where you can do just that! Having opened earlier this month, Hotel Nangu is a stylish adults-only boutique hotel, situated on the remote shores of Lake Inari in northern Finland, 250 km north of the Arctic Circle.
The UK’s only dedicated Northern Lights holiday company, The Aurora Zone, has just released new images that capture the hotel’s first major solar storm. The images were taken this week by Matt Robinson, one of the company’s experienced wilderness guides and photographers, who described the scene:
“The sky over the stunning Hotel Nangu exploded in what looked like a flowing river of light, snaking across the sky with its ever-changing vibrancy. In all my years of hunting the Northern Lights, I have never seen it quite like this. Guests screamed in joy at this ethereal light show as it put on an unforgettable display above this picturesque hotel, creating some truly special memories.”
The 24-bedroom Hotel Nangu is formed of a collection of elegant log buildings, boasting a communal traditional Finnish sauna and panoramic views over the lake. It features in the new trip, Nangu Northern Lights Short Break, a three-night itinerary priced from £1,685 pp (two sharing), including flights, transfers, three nights’ full board at Hotel Nangu, activities (dog sledding, reindeer farm visit, snowshoeing, Aurora workshop, Aurora camp, Aurora hunt by car or minibus and Sami Siida Museum), Aurora alert until 1am, expert guides and cold weather clothing. Departures from 1 February-22 March.
