With untouched deep, powdery snow, unforgettable winter activities and situated in the very heart of Lapland, you’ll be hard pushed to find anywhere as authentic, family-friendly and spectacular as Muotka for your memorable Christmas break.

Your position high above the Arctic Circle is advantageous in many ways. First, you’ll have a guaranteed white Christmas - with a completely covered snowy playground to enjoy for the duration of your stay. We’ve included snowshoeing, a popular Finnish pastime, to help you explore the pristine environment with ease.

Your location also means you will get to meet two of the Arctic’s most-loved animals; huskies and reindeer. You and the family can enjoy dog sledding across the wilderness as well experiencing a reindeer sleigh ride to really complete your Christmas break.

At night, your northerly position gives you a great chance of ticking the Northern Lights off your family bucket list. We’ve included a visit to a nearby Aurora camp to increase your chances as well as an Aurora alert system to help with your search. Additional Aurora activities can be added to your agenda if you have older children and wish to enjoy hunting the Aurora further, just ask one of our travel experts for a quotation.

With winter wonderland surroundings, truly memorable snow-based experiences and the chance to witness the Northern Lights, Muotka provides everything you need to create cherished Christmas memories with the whole family.

Special Nights

Sleep in an Aurora Kota

From: £115pp

Muotka is renowned as an Aurora viewing destination and so the hotel has created a selection of Aurora Kotas for guests to enjoy.

These part-cabin and part-glass tepee buildings are self-contained and situated a short distance from the hotel. The idea is that you can hopefully watch the Northern Lights from the comfort of the bed. 

The Kotas are all 25m² with their own private sauna, double bed and en-suite bathroom.  There is also room for two extra beds for children.

Please note: prices are based on you spending the first or last night of your holiday in this unique accommodation and not keeping your original accommodation. If you would like to do this on any other night during your holiday you will need to keep your accommodation and supplements will apply. Please contact our Travel Experts for a quotation.
