The Northern Lights Village provides a unique opportunity to experience the magnificence of the Northern Lights and the wild nature of Lapland at close range, without sacrificing comfort.
Northern Lights Village was born in 2016, in association of CEO Markku Inkilä and his wife, Susanna Inkilä. They've been running the resort with incredible success over the past few years, having recently been acknowledged as 'Achievers' by the prestigious commerce-oriented Finnish publication 'Kauppalehti'.
Biodiversity, rich local culture and security are the themes that guide what we do on a daily basis. Here are few ways how we in Northern Lights Village Saariselkä and Levi promote sustainable tourism:

We sort and recycle almost all of our waste;
We strive to utilize as many local products as possible in cooking;
We only use marked routes on our excursions;
We operate in accordance with the Sámi Tourism Code of Ethics;
We show a message of hospitality equally to everyone;
We do not condone discrimination or exploitation;
We follow the government's COVID-19 guidelines;
Markku is a highly experienced programme organiser and a passionate Northern Lights photographer. His photos have been published in The Sunday Times, the Telegraph, and on hundreds of websites around the world. Susanna is in charge of Sales & Marketing, whilst also being the creative planner behind the resort's decoration. The Northern Lights Village has gone from strength to strength in numerous aspects and will be launching a second resort in Levi, in 2019.
People behind Northern Lights Village have organised atmospheric nature activities and aurora expeditions for more than 20 years.
