Wondering what you’ll be doing during your trip to the Muotka Wilderness Hotel? We’ve compiled a sample itinerary to give you an idea. This will of course vary slightly depending on scheduling of activities locally;
Day 1. Arrival
Flights from London Gatwick Direct to Ivalo. Arrival to Ivalo Airport and transfer to Wilderness Hotel Muotka (approx. 40 min). Welcome dinner and settle in your accommodation. In the evening, if the Northern Lights are out there is chance to see them from the resort.
Day 2-4. Activities
Reindeer Day with Snowmobile
We will drive with snowmobiles to a reindeer farm, where you will meet the reindeer herders and learn about the importance of reindeer in Lapland. You will learn how to lasso a reindeer and have a short ride in a sleigh pulled by reindeer. We will also enjoy soup lunch during the day.
On this trek, we will head to the forests and hills surrounding Muotka. The forest is beautiful winter wonderland, and the silence is like no other. During the trek the guide will share interesting stories and information about Finnish nature and animals. This trip is perfect for photographers and nature lovers, as snowshoeing is a true eco-activity!
Cross Country Skiing
We will get to know the skis, how to cope with them and learn some useful techniques. This skiing try out 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 will land you safely. 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.
An absolute ‘must do’ when visiting Lapland! The dogs’ excitement is infectious and as the animals fall silent on the trail, you will realise that 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.
This program takes you to the amazing surroundings of Muotka. You will be comfortably seated in a sledge that is pulled by the guide’s snowmobile. This way you can enjoy the northern sky all the way to the camp site. At the camp there is a hut with an open fire to warm us up on a cold night of Aurora hunting. Your guide will also serve warm drinks to keep you heated and cosy. The camp has a minimum amount of light pollution, so it is perfect for viewing the Northern lights that hopefully show up in the sky.
Day 5. Departure
Breakfast and airport transfer. Return flights
