Finland: Muotka Northern Lights Quest

A wilderness location and great wintry fun

5 Days From £1504

A wilderness location and great wintry fun

A fabulous retreat in a wilderness location, the Muotkan Maja Wilderness Lodge is an ideal base for those who want to combine a host of wintry activities with some great opportunities to see the Northern Lights.

Travellers choosing this five day Northern Lights Quest can enjoy skies free of light pollution, a picture postcard setting and the chance to see local wildlife including wolverines, reindeer and Golden Eagles.

Daytimes on this Northern Lights Quest feature a host of snowy activities. There’s the exhilaration of snowmobiling, the excitement of husky sledding, the peace and tranquillity of snowshoeing and cross country skiing plus the sheer joy of a reindeer sleigh ride.

The accommodation for your stay is cosy and welcoming, the on-site restaurant serves delicious, warming Lappish fare and there are three resident saunas to ensure you can warm up whenever you choose.

When you step outside the Lodge, you’ll discover a real winter wonderland with stunning, forest-clad fells and pristine white landscapes. There are great adventures to be had here in the Taiga Forest and our Northern Lights Quest lets you discover them all.
