Our Northern Lights Adventure packs a real activity punch in just four days and you will spend a great deal of time exploring the wilds of Lapland, both during the day and at night.

On this trip, you will travel across the snow-covered landscape in a variety of ways. From the much-loved Finnish pastime of cross-country skiing to the exhilaration of snowmobiling and the thrill of driving a team of huskies across the wilderness.

Your nocturnal activities will be dedicated to seeking out Northern Light displays and with the guide's local knowledge, and a wide variety of vantage points to choose from, your chances couldn't be higher. You will search for the lights by minibus, using snowshoes and in a sleigh pulled by a snowmobile.

Your base at Muotkan Maja Wilderness Hotel can be found amongst the forested-fells in North-East Finland. Muotka's secluded setting provides guests with an idyllic retreat.

The welcoming hotel is decorated in typical Scandinavian décor and offers cosy accommodation and excellent hospitality.

Muotka also has another attraction up its sleeve; the exceptional Aurora Kotas. The Kotas offer guests the chance to spend the night under the Arctic sky and guests can spend their entire stay in a Kota should they wish. Details of these unforgettable options can be found in the 'Accommodation' and  'Personalise' section of the holiday page.

It's hard to narrow down the reasons why we love Muotka; whether it's the wonderful welcome, the fabulous Aurora prospects, the array of activities or the spectacular location. We recommend that you simply go and see for yourself.

Please note if you are travelling over New Year, you will enjoy a festive dinner and celebrations on the 31st of December.

The Specifics

Holiday group size (approximate)

This holiday requires a minimum of 2 people to run, however, on some dates we require a minimum of 8 people for our flight allocation. Maximum 24 people (approximately). Please speak to our Travel Experts for further information.

Group Size

We always try to provide an approximation of the group size you can expect to be with for the duration of each of our holidays. It may be that you are joined by others for parts of your holiday (such as transfers and particular activities) but the above number reflects those you can normally expect to be with from beginning to end. If group size is something which is particularly important to you, please speak to our Travel Experts and they can suggest the best holidays for you.

Tailor-made holiday group sizes will vary for all activities as will the group size for any additional activities you book.

Minimum numbers required for a holiday to operate

Some of our holidays require a minimum number of participants to operate (as listed in the ‘Group Size’ section). If your holiday departure has not yet reached the minimum number, you will be told at the time of booking. In the unlikely event that your chosen date is not guaranteed by nine weeks before your scheduled departure date, we will contact you to discuss the available options as per our booking conditions.

If a specific minimum age applies to this holiday, it can be found in the Key Facts box on the holiday Overview page.

Unless otherwise stated in the Key Facts box on the holiday Overview page, the minimum age for participation in an Aurora Zone holiday is typically 12 years old (there may be younger children in some destinations who have booked with other companies). If an adult-only environment is important to you, then please contact our Travel Experts and they will advise on the best dates and destinations for you. If you are looking for a holiday designed specifically for families then please see our sister company

Itinerary amendments

The order of activities listed in this agenda is provided for guidance only, your final and detailed itinerary will be provided either with your final travel documents (which are uploaded into your online account around a week prior to departure) or upon arrival.

Medical History and Advice

We want our holidays to be accessible as they can be and will do our best to accommodate any special requests and requirements where possible. We have a wide range of holidays and destinations and so our travel experts will help find the best holiday for you.

In order to give us the best possible chance to do this, we ask that if you or any member of your party has any medical condition or disability which may affect your holiday or has any special requirements, that you tell us at the time of enquiry or booking. You must also promptly advise us if any medical condition or disability which may affect your holiday develops after your booking has been confirmed. You may need to provide a doctor’s note and proof of insurance in some cases as the health and safety of our clients is absolutely paramount.

In providing this information you are allowing us to work with our expert local partners to ensure that your whole party can enjoy the holiday. By letting us know in advance we can discreetly work with you to adapt any part of the holiday which may potentially be challenging. Being able to prepare for this in advance makes an incredible difference to what we can offer and minimises any impact on your party and the rest of the group.

Unfortunately, if you choose not to share this information with us in advance then it may limit some or all of the itinerary you have booked, and we cannot be held accountable for any additional costs or missed activities resulting from this.


Insurance is not included in your holiday, but it is a pre-requisite to travelling with us. You will need to ensure that you have cover for all the activities that you will be participating in during your holiday.

It is extremely important that you take out a suitable travel insurance policy at the time of booking. Plans do sometimes change, and you will need this policy should you need to cancel your holiday.

If you are struggling to find a suitable policy then details of our preferred provider, who will cover you for all the activities we offer, can be found on our website by clicking here. Please note that this policy is available to EU residents under the age of 75 only.

Booking Activities Locally

Additional activities can be booked locally in almost all our destinations. However, as per our booking conditions, we cannot be held responsible for any injury or loss incurred through participation in activities which are booked at your destination outside of our holiday itinerary (see our ‘Terms and Conditions’ for further details).

When arranging any such activity please always ensure that safety is your primary concern.

In some of our destinations, you can borrow or hire equipment for use in your free time. You do so entirely at your own risk. You must ensure that you are properly prepared, have the necessary equipment and knowledge (maps, etc) and ensure that where applicable, you follow marked routes. We recommend discussing your plans with the local teams who will be able to advise on the most suitable options for you.

Always let the reception/guide know where you are planning to go and take a torch and mobile phone (with the hotel/guide’s phone number stored). It is also a good idea to leave your contact number and the time you expect to return to the hotel should the hotel need to contact you.

The UK Foreign Office Advice

Our clients’ safety is at the centre of everything we do, and our operations team continually assesses and monitors the destinations we feature. We carry out thorough risk assessments and work closely with all of our suppliers to continually follow best practice. For up to date travel advice the UK government offers its Travel Aware website as well as the advice detailed below.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office Advice

We receive all updates from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) with regards to travel advice and we always ensure that we follow this advice in our operations. The FCO issues travel advisories for countries based on a very wide range of factors. They may provide notification about things as simple as a football match and crowds, or they may go so far as to advise against all travel to a region. We ask all our clients to refer to the relevant Travel Advice by Country for the destinations they are visiting in order to make an informed decision on the safety of the destination based on the details provided. It also provides vital information regarding entry requirements, embassy information, local laws and customs as well as specific safety and health. Guests should take responsibility for keeping themselves up to date with this advice. Please also ensure that, if you are transiting through another country, you have read the advice and meet the entry requirements for that destination too.

The FCO travel advice is applicable to British Passport Holders. Most governments will issue their own travel advice for a region and, if you are not a UK resident then you can find some helpful links below:

Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade 

New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade

Canadian Consular Affairs Bureau

The U.S. Bureau of Consular Affairs

If the FCO deems that there is an unacceptable level of risk for UK citizens then, together with the government, they may issue an advisory against all travel to a region or country. If such an advisory is published, then we will act accordingly, and this may require the cancellation, curtailment or amendment of a holiday itinerary. These decisions are made on the basis of ensuring our clients’ safety and will affect all clients on the holiday, regardless of their nationality.

If one of our local experts suggests an amendment due to a situation which develops locally then we may also take the decision to amend an itinerary appropriately.

If we have to cancel your holiday prior to departure you will be offered the option of an alternative trip (where any price difference will either be refunded to or covered by you) or a full refund of the monies paid.

If we have to curtail a holiday, then you will be refunded for any costs for the elements we have been unable to deliver, where we have been able to secure a refund from our suppliers. If we must reroute a holiday, then any basis for refund is determined on a case by case basis and dependent on whether the central holiday experience was provided or not.

Brexit information for British Passport holders

Information for British Passport Holders

It is your responsibility to ensure that your passport and/or any required visas are up to date for your holiday.  Please take special note of rules relating to passport validity as these have changed since Brexit.  You can find more general advice from the UK government on their Passport rules for travel to Europe and then country specific advice on the Foreign Travel Advice page under the entry requirements section.

Please also check the UK Governments ‘Get Travel Smart’ campaign for up to date information on travel advice by country, information on Travel Insurance and information on how to renew your passport if required.

Flight schedule changes and connecting transportation

On your documentation, we will confirm your flight schedule. Sometimes the flight number, routing and timings might change prior to your departure. If the change is classed as a significant change then we will contact you to discuss this. Please see our booking conditions for details.

Flight schedule changes can impact on your pre and post-holiday travel arrangements if these have been booked separately to your holiday. We strongly recommend that you do not book transport (such as trains or transfers), car parking or non-connecting flights to the departure point for your holiday until you have received your final confirmed travel times when your final travel documents are issued. We are not responsible for the effect of any schedule change on your pre or post travel arrangements. We strongly recommend that you do not purchase non-flexible or non-refundable tickets to avoid cancellation and penalty charges.

Booking your own flights - cancellation disclaimer

If you have chosen to book your own flights, then you will need to wait until we confirm to you that the holiday departure has met the minimum numbers required to run (if applicable to your chosen holiday). Once the holiday is guaranteed to run, you will be informed and you can then make your arrangements.

If transfers are included in your holiday, please ensure that any potential flights will be met by our standard transfers (speak to one of our Travel Experts for advice) otherwise private transfer supplements may be applicable. Once your flights are booked, please send us a copy of your detailed flight itinerary.

Please be aware that most tickets are non-refundable in the case of cancellation. For this reason, we strongly advise you check the rules of the ticket and check the limitations of your cancellation insurance before booking. We cannot be held liable, in the unlikely eventuality that we should be forced to cancel or amend your trip, for losses incurred relating to any flight booking you have made.

  • You will be greeted at the airport before being transferred* the 40km to the Muotkan Maja Wilderness Hotel ready to begin your exciting adventure.

    Your schedule will be keeping you pretty busy for the next few days, so you may wish to get an early night once you have finished your evening meal. However, you should also keep an eye on the sky. The remoteness of the hotel means you don't have to go far to witness the Northern Lights should a display begin.

    The Aurora Kotas here at Muotka are an exceptional upgrade option and provide very comfortable Aurora accommodation either for one night or your whole stay. Details of these options can be found in the 'Accommodation' and 'Personalise' sections of the holiday page.

    * Transfers are based on a scheduled group shuttle that sometimes stops at a few nearby hotels. If you would prefer to upgrade to private taxi transfers please ask our Travel Experts for a quotation.

    Included Meals:  Dinner
  • Following breakfast this morning, you will be out exploring the beautiful wilderness traversing the landscape with cross-country skis (approximately two hours), navigating the trails which surround the hotel. Cross-country skiing is something of a national obsession in this part of the world and an activity we think that everyone should try at least once. It can be addictive and so, if you would like to explore independently later on in the week, you can hire the equipment at the hotel.  Lunch will be served at the hotel.

    In the late afternoon, your guide will talk through the phenomenon of the Northern Lights in detail and describe some of the science and legends behind them. As photographing the Aurora has become increasingly popular they will also aim to discuss the optimal camera settings that will help you capture a potential image.

    Tonight you will head out on your first of three nocturnal excursions in search of the Northern Lights. The guides here are all local experts and their knowledge and enthusiasm for the Aurora are unsurpassed. Tonight your guide will lead you in a sled pulled by their snowmobile to the Aurora Camp, where you will sit around a campfire, listen to stories your guide has to tell and watch the skies for a potential Northern Lights display. You will be out for around two and a half hours.

    Included Meals:  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  • Snowmobiling is one of the most thrilling ways to explore the Arctic, allowing you to cover a lot of ground and gain a sense of the scale of the wilderness. Full instruction and a safety briefing will be given before you set off, travelling two people per snowmobile. Providing you both have a full driving licence and are over 18, you will have the chance to take it in turns to either drive or be the passenger.

    Your destination is a reindeer farm around 20km away, where you will meet with the local herder and his reindeer. Here you will gain an understanding of the history of herding and the importance of the reindeer to the region.

    There will be time to enjoy a short sleigh ride and take some pictures of these gentle animals before embarking on your snowmobiles for the return trip to Muotka. You will be out for around four to five hours in total and a soup lunch is included.

    Following dinner this evening, you will strap on your snowshoes for a hike with your guide. Snowshoeing at night is a different experience to doing so in the day, and the scenery will look very different by torchlight. It is a wonderful experience and with any luck, the Northern Lights will help guide your path. This activity will last for approximately two and a half hours.

    Included Meals:  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  • Your last day in this remote corner of the world is sure to be a memorable one as you experience a husky safari across the fells. The dogs here love nothing more than to pull a sled and their enthusiasm is a joy to witness. You will travel two people per sled with a team of four to six dogs. Once the dogs' initial excited barking has abated, they will pull you enthusiastically across the snow and the experience becomes an altogether tranquil one. The peacefulness of the activity will allow you to really appreciate the awe-inspiring wilderness that provides the backdrop to the experience.

    The distance travelled will be determined by the conditions on the trail but you will be driving for around one hour with the dogs. This activity last around two hours and you will take lunch back at the hotel.

    After your final dinner with the group at Muotka tonight, you will be travelling in a minibus and on the hunt for the Aurora one last time. Utilising the mobility, your guide will locate the best viewpoint and the Northern Lights will hopefully come to bid you farewell. You will be out for around two and a half hours.

    Included Meals:  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  • Today you will bid farewell to Muotka as you are transferred to the airport for your flights home. If you are departing on an early flight, you will be provided with a breakfast box.

    We can arrange for you to extend your stay in Finland and enjoy the sights and sounds of Helsinki on your way home. Please see the 'Personalise' section for details.

The trip was fantastic 01 March 2020 by Sandra Webb

All activities were very well organised and all creature comforts were taken care of. Probably the Reindeer visit was my favourite.

Aurora, need I say more. 23 February 2020 by Paul Cunningham

I had a great time, Nikii is an excellent host. I thought all the activities were of a good duration, long enough to get some practice but not so long that you got cold etc. very well run.

A brilliant holiday and will be recommending you to everyone I know 16 February 2020 by Graham & Allison Mckay

The snow mobiling was a wonderful experience in nature. Amazing and will be back.

It was brilliant, thank you! 16 February 2020 by Thomas & Lisa Bennet

No complaints at all - it was perfect! My wife enjoyed cross country skiing the most, because it was so peaceful, while I liked the aurora camp (we got lucky!) and snowmobiling. Everything else was great as well.

Excellent organisation, very friendly 16 February 2020 by Gary & Sharon Burchett

Loved it, looking at all your other lovely activity and wildlife holidays now and recommending you to everyone we know. Thank you! 24 March 2019 by Belinda Benton

Just back from Muotka, a fantastic recommendation by Amy, thank you. It was exactly what my son wanted, remote and full of excellent outdoor activities, we had a brilliant time. I thought the accommodation and facilities were outstanding and we even got a glimpse of the lights on our final night in a kota thanks to their excellent Aurora alarm system.

Muotka - Northern Lights Adventure 17 March 2019 by Benjamin Francis & Siobhan Currell

We had a fantastic holiday and wouldn't hesitate to return. We've provided feedback on things we think could be improved but our overall experience was very good and we are very happy, thank you.

Thank you Aurora Zone for an experience we will never forget 10 March 2019 by Susan Farrant & Pauline Harries

I cannot praise The Aurora Zone too highly and am busy telling all my friends and family what a wonderful holiday I had and how good your customer service is. Cross-country skiing was a discovery for me and the guide let me enjoy it to the full, even though I was out longer than planned. She gave me expert advice and I had the best possible experience. Everything about this trip was

wonderful, from start to finish. The customer service from the Aurora Zone team was extraordinary; we asked to postpone our trip not long before we were due to go in November because there was no snow and they not only offered us a choice of alternative dates without any hesitation but then refunded us some money as the March trips were slightly cheaper.  The Finnair flights were great, we were met by a very friendly and cheerful driver for the transfer to the Muotka Wilderness Hotel and then given a warm welcome by the Manager. The hotel was comfortable, fed us very well indeed and organised all of the activities beautifully, providing first-rate equipment and excellent guides. We were very fortunate to see the Northern Lights three nights running and that felt like the icing on the cake, we enjoyed the activities so much that even if the lights had not appeared, we would have had a wonderful trip. I am now recommending your company to my family and friends!

Muotka - Northern Lights Adventure 24 February 2019 by Robert & Janet Rigby

The whole experience of visiting Finland and participating in the superbly organised activities exceeded our expectations.If there was any down side to the holiday, it was not seeing the Northern Lights. This we knew was a hit and miss situation and typically, they were visible 2 days after we left.

Muotka - Northern Lights Adventure 24 February 2019 by Mandy Hope

Everyone we met was very friendly and helpful so it seems unfair to mention individuals. But, I wanted to say how extremely impressed I was by all the activity guides. So very competent, professional and friendly. They made the trip for me. Please pass on if you can.

Muotka - Northern Lights Adventure 17 February 2019 by The Horseman Family

Nina welcomed us beautifully upon our arrival. My partner's dietary requirements were well looked after. The hotel facilities were great. All of the staff were professional, friendly and helpful. Especially the activity guides - they were amazing and just wanted everyone to have a great experience. The food was great. The rooms and facilities were great.

We took our family away to celebrate our 40th wedding Anniversary and we were not disappointed. 17 February 2019 by The Djaelani Family

We enjoyed all the activities but the most exileratiing was the dog sledding. The noise and excitement of the dogs before they got going and the silence when they were running- fabulous. We took our family away to celebrate our 40th wedding Anniversary and we were not disappointed. Flowers, chocolates and Prosecco in the room for us when we arrived. A lovely touch. Thank you

Thank you to you and the staff at Muotka for an amazing Honeymoon! 17 February 2019 by Daniel & Katie Sykes

An amazing adventure which was extremely well organised and will give us memories to cherish forever. We felt very well looked after by everybody at the hotel and the guides were wonderful people to learn from and share our experiences with. I would recommend this to anyone - it will easily go down as one of the best trips we've ever taken and will take some beating. Unfortunately, we never met

Seeing the Northern Lights on our last night as part of the Night Snowmobiling Trip was something I will never forget and will never be replicated, it was an incredibly unique experience! But the Gentle Snow Booting during an afternoon was arguable just as enjoyable for very different reasons. Thank you to you and the staff at Muotka for an amazing Honeymoon! It was everything and more than what we hoped for. The chocolates, Wine, card and rooms were the extra special touches which made it really feel like a Honeymoon! Thankyou!

Muotka - Northern Lights Adventure 17 February 2019 by The Lodge Family

The activity guides were wonderful. They worked such long hours not finishing till after midnight and were always cheerful. They were so knowledgeable and helpful and always made sure no one was left behind.

Thoroughly enjoyed all the activities. 17 February 2019 by Sarah & Andrew Inchley

Fantastic holiday. Excellent organisation. Activities were very well run with friendly and informative guides. Topped off by an amazing show of the Lights on the final night.

Flipping brilliant. The trip was even better than we could have imagined 27 January 2019 by Rachel & Matthew Robinson

In no particular order; the guides were full of really interesting info and happy to chat with us; the scenery was outstanding, breathtaking, peaceful; the food was great, filling, warm and lots; the interior of the hotel was cosy, lovely lighting and roaring fires; the group activities were fun, even with differing ages/abilities in the group; being able to take the equipment out whenever we

wanted to with no extra charge was great, so we did cross-country skiing three times; transfers were like clockwork, there was no waiting around anywhere, except to see the lights!; we saw the lights on 2 of 4 nights, which was enough for us! The trip for us was very expensive and the first time we have done a fully organised holiday, but it was totally the right decision. Having it all arranged, told when to do what was great, a real change for us. Met some great people, a real mix. And finally, the organisation pre-trip from The Aurora Zone was fantastic, easy, detailed, I knew what to take, where to go and it felt super easy. Thank you to your guys and thank you to the Muotka crew who made this trip for my and my husband’s 40th birthdays a totally amazing trip that we will never forget. We have travelled loads, but this felt really special.

Muotka - Northern Lights Adventure 27 January 2019 by The Inder Family

The husky safari was the best. 7km was a bit short for us - but to be fair, without ant prior knowledge and such a short break this is nit picking. Overall it was excellent. The guides were great - and passionate about what they do and most engaging. What was good about this selection of activities over a short timeframe is that we know now what to do more of and less of the next time, because we

We had a fabulous time 13 January 2019 by Chris Northfield

Just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for helping us book the recent winter activity trip to Muotka. We had a fabulous time and we both managed to do all the activities and see the Northern Lights on 2 of the 4 nights we were there! I’ve attached one of the night shots taken during our trip. I’ve already recommended you to a couple of friends. A bit of constructive
Read more
feedback for those with lower back issues like me…. Obviously, every individual has to assess the risk but I thought I would pass on my views. I found that riding pillion on the snowmobile was better than driving for 2 reasons: the side handles and backrest can be used to brace yourself over the bumpy ground, so I found it possible to participate quite easily and without too much trouble. I found that the fact I stood up to drive the husky sled meant there was no pressure on my lower back, as with the snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. If the client was in any doubt, I would suggest they schedule a short snowmobile trip first up in the trip as a taster of what it’s like before plunging into the all-day run to the reindeer farm! I hope this feedback helps other similarly afflicted clients with their decision.

The trip was fantastic 03 January 2019 by Kimberely & Iain Hammond

Apart from the flights home which went wrong and we ended up having to go through Heathrow the actual trip was fantastic from the people to the accommodation, food and to top it off seeing the Northern Lights.

All the activity guides were charming 30 December 2018 by The du Bois Family

We didn't meet the local rep, but all hotel staff and the aurora workshop presenter were excellent, very well informed and helpful. All the activity guides were charming, knowledgeable and very friendly. The birthday cake was delicious - thank you. And the decorations, including chocolates and sparkling wine, were lovely, all very thoughtful.

Overall we had an amazing holiday. 26 March 2018 by Lynn & Patrick Acheson

The log cabin and Aurora cabin were both fabulous. The cold weather suits, boots, helmets etc. were all of high standard and kept us warm. The setting of the lodge and activities, away from civilisation, in beautiful scenery was magical. All the guides and lodge staff were lovely and eager to help with any queries, putting on equipment and extremely cheerful and friendly. There was a great,

Seeing the Aurora 3 nights out of 4 - WOW!!!!

Loved it all 27 February 2018 by Katie Grinnell and Craig Went

Loved it all, so hard to choose. I think the husky sledging (was the favourite) as it was so peaceful and fun.

Wonderful time was had by both. 27 February 2018 by Fiona Laing and Isabel Wilson

A wonderful time was had by both. The only improvement would be to have a map/route planner for occasions when you went out on your own. Thank you to all involved in making the short break an unforgettable experience. Helped particularly by the Aurora joining us on 3 nights out of 4!! Not something you can control!!

Muotka was amazing. 06 February 2018 by Jo Rushe and Christopher Weyer

Also, Matt the rep was brilliant whilst we were out aurora hunting - his knowledge was exceptional! All of the guides were extremely friendly and welcoming making each activity truly memorable.

A wonderful memorable holiday 22 January 2018 by Lynne Austin and Beryl Evans

The Wilderness Lodge was the most perfect accommodation, welcoming and relaxing after a busy day of activities.

An Excellent holiday. Matt the local rep was excellent - always attentive and ensuring everyone had a good time. Really helpful with cameras, taking pictures of us and general info on the Northern LIghts.

Thank you for making this a birthday to remember. 29 December 2017 by Angela and Timothy Mulley

The hotel is fantastic and everyone was very friendly and helpful. Relaxed atmosphere and the most beautiful location. My husband loved the snowmobile and dog sledding - anything with an engine ;) I really enjoyed the dogs - driving the sledge through snow covered forest was magical but I thought the cross country skiing was also brilliant.

This has been a fantastic holiday. Our neighbours went on the same holiday last year and told us that we had to go! The staff were so helpful, friendly and fun.

are so noisy until they can run, then the peace whilst travelling at speed through the snow is amazing...I just felt so lucky to have the experience of being there. The snowmobiles and cross-country skiing were also wonderful. The snowshoeing is last on the list but that was also good fun. All the guides were professional and friendly. Loved all the berry juice and camp fires.

Great mix of activities 22 March 2017 by David Stempler, Vandana Balachandar, Robyn Orr & Alistair Schoonmaker

Overall great experience using Aurora Zone... salesperson was helpful and honest and the account folks were very quick to respond. It's a great mix of activities and downtime. 

Wouldn't hesitate to recommend your company 01 March 2017 by Stuart and Sarah Niman

We chose your company because we wanted to see the Northern Lights we believed you would give us the best chance of seeing it, it turns out we were right, how much of that was location or luck we will never know, but if any of our friends say they want to see the northern lights I wouldn't hesitate but to recommend your company.

Great Holiday! 01 March 2017 by Richard, Frances and Samantha Rogers and Nathan Onions

Everything went very well and all the people in sales, admin and Muotka were all polite and efficient.

An amazing trip 19 February 2017 by Jodee and Cyril Dowling

From start to finish this really was an amazing trip. We were slightly worried that we would somehow feel it wasn't value for money with the cost being higher than we would normally spend. However, we thought it was very good value; the accommodation was lovely and the food very good. The activities were well organised and the guides were great. We went snowmobiling (day and night), Aurora camp,

Husky sledding was an incredible experience 12 February 2017 by Kirsty Edwards and Nicole Judd

Loved every minute 08 February 2017 by Kay and Terrence Heffernan

The holiday was awesome and we saw the Northern Lights so that was a bonus. Enjoyed the husky safari the best. It felt very real. The guides were very helpful and best of all very natural. The dogs are gorgeous! Loved every minute. The food was delicious. Every meal!

I really enjoyed being able to land at the airport and everything was already planned out. I never had any issues with the accommodations, food, guides, or activities. I personally like cross country skiing, as I really enjoyed being out in the nature and being active. I really enjoyed getting to learn about the culture, reindeer activities food, and being able to book out the sauna instead of

Bucket List #1 - Checked! The trip had been the best vacation ever taken. The tour activities were well planned and fun to be a part of. Managed to see the Northern Lights for 3 nights in a row (solar activity was at its highest with kp-5 on most nights) and bonus of light drift snow.

Everything went really well 02 March 2016 by Michael Best

Everything went really well and there was a clear sky on the first night so we were able to see the Northern Lights. Looking back the activities were excellent and made up 99% of our memories, the lights were really just a very small part. You also need a clear sky, which is quite rare, so you need a lot of luck to see them. But in our minds, all the activities are the main thing. One thing which

exceeded our expectations was that the snowmobiling and husky safaris were much longer than we expected, which was great. They weren't just "round the block", they were proper treks of an hour or so each way. The accommodation and food were excellent, as was the thermal gear provided. Although it was -9C there was no wind, so no wind chill factor, so once you were wrapped up and warm you stayed warm.

The husky safari was by far the most enjoyable thing! 10 March 2015 by Louise Drury

four hours that night because of the flight delay, and had not long done two hours of snowshoeing, but if I had to choose, it would be the skiing. In all honesty, I don't think there are any improvements to make. We had the seven hour delay at Heathrow, and you guys were onto Finnair and updating us with information more than the airline was! You also started enquiring about compensation before we'd even got home! So although there were problems which were out of your control, the way you guys handled them all was just amazing. Couldn't have asked for more.

All of these activities were absolutely fantastic and I can’t begin to thank our

We saw the Northern Lights on the last night 30 January 2015 by Tricia Honour

Most enjoyable was dog sledding. Always wanted to do it, it was awesome. Would go back again just to do dog sledding and snowmobiling AND we saw the Northern Lights on the last night.

and the Aurora expeditions - we were lucky enough to see the Aurora twice, and the second time was a fantastic display. We had booked an Aurora bubble for our last night and this was an unforgettable experience as we were able to watch the Aurora from within for hours - probably one of the best things we've ever done. Of course it is a matter of luck as to whether you will see the Aurora, but I would say that travelling later in the season, as we did, might give you a better chance of clear skies. This holiday is described as 'very active' - we are both reasonably fit, and I would say that you would have to have at least some level of fitness to handle the cross-country skiing, and have at least some balance to handle the huskies (but this isn't too hard), but we found that we had quite a lot of recovery time during the day so no-one who does at least some regular exercise should find the trip too hard. I would thoroughly recommend it.
