Our Origins


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'.

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 strengh 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. Their specialty is the hunting and photographing of the Northern Lights. All guides are experienced photographers who can help guests take the best possible photos of the Northern Lights.
