All our husky safaris include full instructions and are based on two people sharing a sled unless otherwise stated.

On this trek, head to Muotka forests and hills and experience the amazing atmosphere of old forests on this relaxing snowshoe walk to the aurora camp spot. Walking In the dark forests companied by the light of the moon and dance of the northern lights is unforgettable.

Cross-country skiing - Lapland

Cross Country Skiing: head to the forest and discover the glittering landscape by cross-country ski, warming up with a hot drink in the peaceful wilderness.  This skiing tryout is all about learning something new and once you get the hang of it, it will be the nicest sport you have ever done. There’s no need to be afraid of falling over, as the soft snow provides a cushioned landing. There are lots of ready-made illuminated tracks in the Muotka surroundings, so you will have a chance to go out on your own after this introductory tour.

 

Traditional Finnish sauna and Arctic river experience: relax in the warmth of a traditional Finnish smoke sauna. There’s a swimming hole located right by the sauna and if you’re brave enough – you can even try to take a dip in the ice cold river.
