Nellim is approx 240 km inside the Artic Circle & 8 km from the border with Russia. In March its can be cold (minus 27 one morning), we found between minus 5 to minus 10 during the day to be the norm. If you want 5* Hotels, multi choice menus & scheduled evening entertainment this isn't the place for you. If you want good, clean accommodation, outdoor activities & make your own entertainment evenings - then its great! We had marvellous days snow shoeing, snow mobiling, X country ski-ing, ice fishing and to top it all - the Northern Lights!! We had local people telling us about & showing us their country. It was amazing.
