Lake Inari Mobile Cabins

Warmly welcome to visit our family and overnight on ice!
Our base camp is near Inari village by Lake Inari. We can pick you up from the village if needed. There at the base camp it is possible to join activities and dinner by open fire. In the main building you have shared kitchen, dining room, showers and normal water toilets available before going to the lake ice.

At 8pm the guide starts the snowmobile and toes the cabins one by one to the overnight place on ice. It takes about 1h to move all 6 cabins to the ice. You are inside your cabin during moving. It is possible to go out too when all cabins are there. Each cabin has heating, lights, double bed, toilet, power bank for charging and wifi network. A cabin has no water that you can get from the main building before departure.

**overnight on ice**

At 8am or earlier if you wish, the guide starts to toe the cabins back to the base camp for breakfast.

Story behind the cabins
I am Esko the owner. 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.

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 on river ice and on 10th Dec on lake ice. November 2018 was the warmest in 70 years.
This year 2019 the ice season started on 31st of October!
Safe means more than 20cm clear ice.

If the weather forecast is below -30 degrees with wind chill 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.
