The Wilderness hotel offers a range of accommodation options depending on your preference from rustic log cabins to cozy hotel rooms and spacious suites, or, for something extra special, you can elect to spend a night in an Aurora bubble or Kota, where a transparent roof means that you can look out for the dancing Aurora Borealis from the comfort of your warm bed. The wilderness rooms also have a rustic log-cabin style with wood-panelled walls, double or twin beds and your own private sauna.

There are plenty of accommodation options for families with log cabins featuring 2 or 3 bedrooms, you’ll even have your own kitchenette, cosy living area with fireplace and a bathroom with a sauna. For larger groups the 4-bedroom lakeside villa, set a little away from the main building, is perfect for those wanting their own space with beautiful lakeside views.

The cosy restaurant offers traditional Lappish cuisine and dinner is served in a buffet style with a wide selection of salads, soups and main courses. There is also a bar where you can sample some of their speciality cocktails such as the Husky Howler or the Reindeer Kick!

Naturally, the activities on offer are a highlight of the Wilderness hotel and you can try your hand at snowmobiling, husky safaris, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing reindeer safaris and much more. Speak to your travel consultant who will be able to let you know about the options on offer.
