Lapland Break at the Hotel Muotka

5 Day Tour, from £1695 per person

Just 45 minutes from Ivalo, Finland’s northernmost airport, Muotka Wilderness Lodge is set deep in the forest, next to the Arctic fells of Urho Kekkonen National Park.

Far away from any light pollution, this remote Lapland lodge is the ideal spot for aurora hunting. Spend winter days exploring the silent snow-covered landscapes on included snowmobile and husky safaris, before heading out to gaze at the night sky.

All excursions indicated on days 2-4 of the itinerary are included in this holiday, but the order in which you enjoy them may vary depending on timing and snow conditions when you arrive in Finland.

WILDERNESS EXCURSIONS
Husky - Lapland

A husky safari is a bucket-list activity to enjoy when visiting Lapland. Learn how to handle the sled before heading out on the husky safari through charming scenery. All husky safaris include full instructions and are based on two people sharing a sled, unless otherwise stated.

 

This evening, venture out into the darkness on snowshoes in search of the Northern Lights. Walk through snowy landscapes in the Muotka forests and hills to the aurora camp, accompanied by the light of the moon. Warm up by the campfire and wait for the aurora to show up, while warm drinks are prepared on the open fire. (B,L,D)

DAY 4
WILDERNESS EXCURSIONS
Cross-country skiing - Lapland

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 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, for the chance to go out alone after the introductory tour. (B,L,D)
