Hotel Inari 

Our bucket list Lapland trip wasn't quite complete without a stop in Inari.  We enjoyed the ice castle in Kemi, the spectacular Auroras at Northern Lights Village, and relaxed at the beautiful Aurora Village, but we still had to experience some of the Finland Culture in Inari.  

The last leg of our trip was at Hotel Inari. We were excited to get there, because it would be the furthest North we were traveling to, so we were looking forward to an awesome Aurora show. And it did not disappoint.

If you’re wanting a relaxing, nature filled vacation in Lapland Finland, away from all the hustle and bustle of tourism, you have to check out Aurora Village.  It is an awesome place in Ivalo, Finland, that is perfect for a Northern Lights adventure.  Aurora Village has beautiful glass igloo cabins that make it a picture perfect place for your Aurora watching experience.  It feels like your own serene getaway, and is very quiet around the grounds, but still offers everything you would want during your beautiful Lapland adventure. 

Kemi, the hidden gem in Lapland, Finland

Kemi, the hidden gem in Lapland, Finland

We finally had some time off to take an awesome trip together, so B and I were talking about different trips we could take, and where we wanted to go.  He threw out Finland, and I ran with it.  We had seen the Northern Lights in Iceland about a year and a half before, but if you remember, those were the boring lights.  We still wanted to see the magical green lights dancing in the sky.  We had a small taste on our flight over to Iceland, but it just made me want to see them even more.  So, we started planning our trip to Finland, and quickly decided we would spend our time in beautiful Lapland.

Let’s face it. Who wants to spend their time off spring cleaning? Wouldn’t it be better to spend that time binge watching another awesome series on Netflix? Yes, it would.
