Cabin overnight on lake ice

Story behind the cabins
I used to ski on Lake Inari ice in the evenings. It was quiet, spacious and cold. With clear weather the northern lights were wide and amazing. I often wanted to stay longer but as often was it very cold. Then I got the idea of building up a small portable cabin for my own purpose. I could move it to the lake ice and enjoy its atmosphere comfortably. Soon after in the spring 2014 I started to build up the prototype, cabin nr 1.

This is how it goes
Base camp is near Inari village by Lake Inari. There you can join activities, enjoy famous sauna and local dinner by open fire or just rest in your cabin before night on the lake. Main building facilities are available as well: shared kitchen, dining room, living room, showers and restrooms.

At 8-9pm the guide toes the cabins by snowmobile about 1,5km to the lake ice. You are inside your cabin during moving. Each cabin has heating, lights, double bed, toilet, power bank for charging and wifi network.

Then overnight on lake ice...

At 8-9am (or earlier if you wish) the guide starts to toe the cabins back to the base camp there you can wash up and enjoy breakfast.

Safety on ice
In the past years the safe ice-season has started:
in 2014 on 15th November
in 2015 on 6th December
in 2016 on 20th November
in 2017 on 22nd November
in 2018 on 25th November
in 2019 on 31st October.
Ice stays safe at least until mid-April.
Safe means more than 20cm clear ice.

If the weather forecast is below -30 degrees with wind chill or wind forecast is too hard then the cabins will be shorter time on lake ice or stay at the base camp. There you have same chance to see the northern lights and you can enjoy main building facilities during the night. Average temperature in winter is -13 degrees celcius.
