Husky Safari: An absolute ‘must do’ when visiting Lapland! You will be taught how to handle the sled before heading out on the husky safari, where the huskies will pull your sled through the beautiful winter scenery. The dogs’ excitement is infectious but they fall silent on the trail, this is the only way to see Lapland. All our husky safaris include full instructions and are based on two people sharing a sled unless otherwise stated.

 

Aurora Camp: This excursion takes you Aurora hunting to the amazing surroundings of Muotka. Sit comfortably in a sledge that is pulled by the guide’s snowmobile. Enjoy the northern sky all the way to the camp place. While observing the night sky, warm up around a blazing campfire sipping hot drinks and enjoying each other’s company. The atmosphere by the campfire is an experience in itself. If you are lucky, you might get to enjoy this unique light phenomenon.

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.
