Holiday group size (approximate)

Minimum of 2 people - during activities the maximum group size is approximately 24 people

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.

Itinerary amendments

The order of activities is always subject to change and guests will be provided with their final itinerary upon arrival.

SINGLE SUPPLEMENT

Please note that some of our holidays may incur a single supplement. Please speak to one of our Travel Experts who will provide you with a quotation.

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.

PREGNANCY

If you are pregnant at the time of booking your holiday or you discover you are pregnant prior to your departure, firstly – congratulations! Secondly – please tell us as soon as possible. This situation does arise, and we are able to advise you both from our own first-hand experience and from discussing this at length with our expert local partners who have experience in this area. The more notice you can give us the better, in order to suggest any adaptions to the itinerary you have booked which will reduce the risk to both mother and baby. Please contact our customer service team at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information.

INSURANCE

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.

Reduced Mobility

If you have a reduced level of mobility, then please contact our travel experts to discuss the suitability of this holiday in relation to your requirements.

Experience and fitness

We offer a vast choice of holidays which range from 'relaxed' to 'active' so there really is something for everyone and our holidays can be filtered by how active they are. Regardless of the chosen holiday, all activities will include tuition from a beginner's level and no prior experience is assumed.

If you are unsure about the physical demands of a particular holiday please contact us and our expert team will be happy to help.

See our booking conditions for further information.

Guides and safety

It is absolutely essential when partaking in any activity that you listen very closely to, and abide by, the instructions provided.

If there is anything that you are unsure of during a safety briefing or that you would like to clarify with the guides please make this clear to them immediately before starting the activity.

Our guides' word on activities is always final and your safety is their principal concern at all times, please respect their decisions. By following their instructions, your safety and enjoyment during each activity will be greatly enhanced.

See our booking conditions for further information.

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.

Car Hire

If your trip includes car hire the named driver must have a credit card registered in their name which they can present when they collect their car along with their driving licence, as a deposit will be held on the credit card.  Please see your trip dossier for full details.

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.

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.

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 http://www.smartraveller.gov.au/                                                    New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade http://www.safetravel.govt.nz/                                                  Canadian Consular Affairs Bureau http://voyage.gc.ca/                                                                                                      The U.S. Bureau of Consular Affairs http://travel.state.gov/content/travel/english.html

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.

Minimum number of activities

Please note that you must book at least one activity to secure accommodation at Muotka Wilderness Lodge.

Minimum age

The minimum age for participation in our itinerary is 4 years old, however, for some activities and transfers, you may be joined by other guests and this may include some of a younger age than stated. Any younger participants will be fully supervised and the guides will ensure that their participation takes place only if the activities will be unaffected.

Very few hotels have a minimum age and there may be families staying at them with younger children, especially during the holiday periods. We do have some itineraries and destinations which are guaranteed to be adult-only, so if this is important to you please speak to one of our Travel Experts.

To drive a snowmobile you must have a full driving licence and be over 18 years old.

Best holiday of my life 23 January 2018 by Peter Lasham

Magical and amazing. The organisation and execution of the holiday was perfect. Two hours being pulled by huskeys through an untouched paradise, what more do I need to say.

The beauty is breathtaking 27 March 2017 by Yvonne van Oosterhoudb & Alan Stead

We have just returned from 4 days in the Muotka Lodge. We were not sure whether to book Nellim or Muotka but decided that as we wanted the real Lappish feeling, we had to go to the lodge that was less touristic and quieter. We booked 2 nights in a log cabin and the last night in the Aurora bubble. It first looked like we were not able to see any Aurora lights because of the weather, but we
Read more
have seen some activity each night. Upon arrival, we were booked on an Aurora camp which takes you in a little car behind a snowmobile into a small open space. There is a tepee there and a little place to keep warm. It was clouded but we did some activity. However, what nobody ever tells you is that most Aurora lights come in white and that you can see the colours by using a camera only*. It was a pleasant surprise and with -5 it was not cold. Muotka provides you with all that you need in the cold: a balaclava, helmet, mittens, socks, shoes and a proper suit. You can keep these during your entire stay. The log cabin was fantastic. Incredibly quiet, warm and a huge window to see the nature around you. There is a little sauna and a place to light a fire, but we didn't need the extra warmth. Wi-Fi is only to be found in the restaurant/reception area, but if you really want to enjoy this Lapland experience you should do without Wi-Fi anyway in my opinion. The Aurora bubble was something that I would only recommend for one night. It is something special, but as the room is much smaller I would not stay there any longer. The bubble is to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to lie in your bed and look up at the sky and see the stars and if you're lucky some Polar lights as well. We had snow all day long, but after going to bed I realised that I saw some stars and yes there they were, the lights were there for about 20 mins. The food at the Muotka lodge is simple but oh, so tasty. It is buffet style, but local food and there is always a fish dish and a meat dish with vegetables and some sort of potato dish. On top of that, there are salads, bread and there is a little bar to purchase a beer or some wine. The guides at the lodges are all extremely nice and knowledgeable. The second day we went Aurora hunting with the car and although we were told we didn't need to dress in the thermal clothing we were glad we did as the temp dropped to -22C. Please do not forget to pack the thermal boots! We had forgotten those and after standing outside looking at the lights you will get cold feet. On the third day, we went for a snowmobile trip during the day. We were only with 5 scooters and sitting in the back is rather comfortable. Again the guides were very good and kept us safe. The beauty is breathtaking and we ended up on a hill where I think the feel temp must have hit -40C! Brrr... but again the clothing kept us warm. We had a lovely simple warm lunch where they were keeping reindeer and we went back to the lodge. It was a very impressing experience. On day four we sadly had to leave again, but being in Finnish Lapland we finally had some time to think about things and about life in general. We had a lot of fun in Muotka and would certainly recommend going there. The Aurora Zone people have been very easy to deal with and very helpful. I would only want to say that if you can, spend a bit more money for at least the log cabin as it is certainly worth it. * Hi Yvonne and Alan - we would like to comment that the colour of the Aurora to the naked eye is predominantly green - in fact, white Auroras are very rare and are generally the result of weak geomagnetic activity. We are delighted that you had such a wonderful trip! The Aurora Zone team

A truly magical place 05 March 2017 by Fiona & David Layton & Jennifer Roland-White

I must extend our wholehearted thanks to all who organised our recent trip to Finland and the wonderful Muotka. What a truly magical place. The staff were so lovely and nothing was too much trouble, comfortable bedrooms and good food.

I have to say everything was perfect! 25 February 2017 by Don Nathaniel Lai Kok Kong

Sorry to take a little longer to write some feedback, as we were heading to Prague after Ivalo and Helsinki. We left Moutkan Wilderness on 1st March after spending 4 nights there. We were given a cell phone, which will notify us whenever Aurora activity was going to happen or happening. We didn't quite believe that the notification can be that accurate until it beeped on the 1st night saying

Aurora activity was going to take place... we went out of our room, stared into the sky, within a min of 2 minutes, the lights just came dancing in the sky! I had spent 10 days in Iceland during winter but saw nothing, here we stayed for 4 nights, and we were blessed with at least 5 light displays in the sky! Just amazing and spectacular! (There was a night where the whole sky turned into green colour!). The accommodation was beyond my expectation! It was clean and neat and spacious! And all the staff were very helpful and friendly! I have to say that everything was just perfect! Now am thinking for my next Northern Lights hunting! Perhaps Norway!
